Join us virtually for the Smart Buildings Exchange (SBX) 2023 Independent Data Layer – A Path Toward Interoperability session on August 16th from 11:00 am – 12:30 pm PT. James Dice with Nexus Labs will moderate the discussion between Sabine Lam (Google), Thano Lambrinos (QuadReal), and Trevor Sodoroff, DB Engineering. You don’t want to miss this session — register now!
The multiplicity of building systems and use cases has bedeviled building managers and operators for years – most acutely in the inability to have effective data sharing between them. Solutions ranging from open-source protocols to standard nomenclatures have meant progress, but a permanent fix to interoperability has remained elusive. This session will explore the idea of an “independent data layer” (aka a data lake or data aggregation layer) and how the creation of this middle layer between systems and application layer can unlock huge benefits for the building and industry providers who embrace the idea.
