16 December 2019
'Ranking Siemens as a market leader recognises our capabilities to meet evolving customer requirements beyond simply monitoring, analysing and controlling building services. Today, buildings are interacting, learning and adapting, creating environments that fit the habits and needs of their occupants.'
Independent industry research company Verdantix has recently ranked Siemens Smart Infrastructure as a leading provider of the Internet of Things (IoT) platforms for smart buildings.
The ‘Green Quadrant IoT platforms for Smart Buildings 2019’ report assesses 13 companies that Verdantix considers as shaping the market, which is still at its infancy but seeing strong competition.
According to Verdantix, occupant wellbeing, cost reduction and space utilization will drive real estate strategies for the next year.
Single source view of building data
“Customers want a single source view of their building data in order to generate money-saving insights and boost employees’ productivity,” said Dennis Callaghan, principal analyst at Verdantix.
“We are thrilled that Verdantix acknowledges our standing in the market, as we combine homegrown and acquired solutions to implement our ambitious vision for smart buildings,” said Eike-Oliver Steffen, CEO of the solution and service portfolio at Siemens.
“Ranking Siemens as a market leader recognises our capabilities to meet evolving customer requirements beyond simply monitoring, analysing and controlling building services. Today, buildings are interacting, learning and adapting, creating environments that fit the habits and needs of their occupants.”
Verdantix emphasized that Siemens has built an impressive ecosystem of smart building solutions, constantly enhancing its offering for user-centric smart buildings.
At the centre of Siemens’ comprehensive and integrated smart building portfolio is Navigator, a cloud-based analytics platform.
It collects, organises, visualizes and analyses building data, mostly for energy, sustainability and asset performance.
Siemens offers several other building IoT applications within its ecosystem, including Comfy for workplace experience and analytics, Enlighted for IoT solutions and sensor technology, the Siveillance product line for security and access control, building twin as the repository for data from construction plans and live building data, such as from sensors, and the Desigo CC building management system.
Connect building assets
Siemens’ MindSphere IoT operating system, designed to connect building assets and support the integration and analysis of monitoring data in the cloud, is the underlying platform for these applications.
