Presentation from the 2014 Great Lakes Business Intelligence & Big Data Summit
Topic: Finding the Needle in the Data Haystack
Johnson Controls remotely monitors building systems, generating tens of millions of rows each day, and adding up to tens of billions of new records each year. But building managers only want to know: Are my occupants comfortable? Is my building healthy? How do you show different end users the small set of data they need, and then show that data across multiple devices, from mobile phones, to tablets, and desktops. And here is the key, who ignores their check engine light? Who waits a while to change the battery on a beeping smoke detector? And who ignores the car alarm someone accidentally set off? Picking out useful data from useless data is key. By only showing users the data they need at the moment, and cutting out the noise. Johnson Controls Building Efficiency and OST are helping users save time and money by finding problems before they occur. We will review how we employed a “Lean Startup” methodology and a diverse technology stack to bring the key data to our end users.
