Improved Data Analysis with Smart Buildings Technology

The continuing evolution of technology and adoption rates of smart building solutions lead to improved data analysis.

The world of smart building solutions is evolving. The technologies of the past have given way to newer, more advanced systems, and better means of data capture are contributing to faster and extensive insights. Furthermore, new analytics systems and algorithms compare data to find the greatest savings possible. Fortunately, facilities managers can stay ahead of the trend by understanding how smart buildings technologyimproves data analysis.

Smart Buildings Technology Improves Preventative Maintenance, Creating Smarter Systems and Leading to Better Data Analysis

A primary benefit of smart buildings technology is preventative maintenance, which refers to the use of data analysis to identify possible malfunctions insistence before they impact operability. This results in a positive, continuous feedback loop, which improves accuracy in future areas of focus.

Smart Buildings Technology Compares Customer Experience Data to Other Data Points for Better Analyses

Information from customers about their experiences also leads to additional insights as data analysis compares consumer information and feedback to other factors and information from smart building technology. As a result, facility managers can work to improve the customer experience even further.

New Data Sources Provide More Data and Application to Actionable Insights

There are hundreds of new technologies being leveraged to increase the amount of data used by today's smart solutions. This can include any device connected to the Internet of Things as well. 

For example, new security systems can automatically switch on, notifying facility managers of individuals entering, exiting or moving throughout their facilities. During vacancy hours, the use of automated, motion sensors can help improve energy efficiency through data analysis.

Smart Technologies Boost Accuracy, Responsiveness and Verification of Energy Efficiency Standards and Practices

Smart buildings technology also has the potential to improve accuracy, responsiveness and verification when work is needed. If a technician performs work on connected devices, modern analytics programs can determine if the work was completed and ensure its accuracy. Furthermore, Smart Technologies can leverage this information with existing data analyses to prevent future problems.

Smart Buildings Technology and Algorithms Adapt to Changing Needs

The ability of smart buildings technology and data algorithms to adapt to changing means reflects a major benefit of smart buildings technology. Since these systems function independently and have the potential to adjust settings automatically, the burden of work is shifted from facilities managers to the system. Essentially, computer-controlled systems are more accurate than people, which leads to better data analysis.

Smart Buildings Technology Brings Disparate Systems Together for Better Analyses

Unfortunately, data silos and disparate systems continue to exist in facilities management, especially among establishments that have not implemented newer, smart building technologies. However, modern smart buildings technology can be effectively retrofitted to buildings of any size, bringing disparate systems together for better data analyses. 

Your Facility Can Benefit From Improved Data Analysis Through Smart Building Tech Too

The benefits of improved data analysis are clear; more opportunities to collect and analyze information through smart buildings technology will lead to better, more actionable insights for facility management professionals.
