Big Data Delivers Big Insight

bdoc_editCheck out one of the latest projects by our Enterprise Intelligence Group—the creation of a replicable and expandable solution for tracking big data at a Midtown Atlanta 7,000-space parking garage.


The Challenge

The parking garage manager monitored visitors via different systems that didn’t share data—one managing visitors to the retail area and another managing employees and residents for the office and residential facility. The system lacked an efficient means of tracking visitors entering and exiting the garage, where they lived or worked, and the duration of time parked inside the garage.

Third Party Integration Software Drivers – The Good, The Bad and The Ugly


In the quest for more open systems, many building owners are stuck with stranded investments in aging building management systems (BMS), which were developed and sold before the time of “Open Systems” and do not easily support the migration to LON or BACNET due to their proprietary communications protocols and physical connection requirements. Every owner wants to create a sustainable competitive environment at all levels within their procurement processes, and the inability of these older BMS to communicate with newer generation products create a sole source and proprietary relationship with the original system manufacturer.

Is Big Data Dead?

buildingintelligence2_smallerAccording to recent articles I have read, the answer is a resounding “yes.” However, I tend to take the approach that Jon Morris mentions in an article he posted on inc. titled How to Gather Smart (Not Big) Data. Data is data no matter the size or complexity. It is what you do with it that can set you apart from your competition.
