As proclaimed by the white paper's executive summary:
Looking for a new kind of BMS?
Building owners, facility managers, and system integrators face increasing pressure to save more energy, reduce costs, and maintain availability all while enhancing occupant experience and well-being.
Achieving these varying objectives is best solved by a new type of BMS available today that goes well beyond HVAC controls.
The document goes on to describe how a modern BMS platform can benefit stakeholders by being a more open integration environment that uses IoT, cloud computing, data analytics, and artificial intelligence technologies to get more out of available resources and connected systems.
The white paper also describes factors driving the evolution of next-generation BMS platforms, and describes three essential elements necessary for solving the building management challenges of today and tomorrow.
The paper goes on to explain how these elements can put building stakeholders on the right path to benefit from emerging and future digital technologies.
