Overview

Connected devices are changing people’s lives like never before, and this change is being led by the consumer environment. However, the built environment is changing rapidly too, and this is leading to innovative processes in building services and associated sectors.

The range of sensors that are linked to, or part of, plant and equipment is becoming greater. Wearables and mobile devices are ubiquitous, and all of these devices are becoming more and more affordable. The usefulness of these interconnected devices can be tremendous and ranges from enhancing life safety and security to building automation control and reporting. But many building operators lack convenient ways to turn the flood of data into information they can use to prioritise and act.

Analytics software can help solve that problem. Sophisticated analytics algorithms scan and filter data to find patterns, trends and problems that would otherwise be obscured by the sheer volume of data. This publication raises awareness and provides guidance to building owners, and all those involved in the design, construction and operation of buildings and building services, on analysing making use of this “big data”.
