Verdantix Names 20 Smart Innovators In The Market For Facility Optimization Management
NEW YORK – July 12, 2017. Verdantix continuously analyses the surge of technology innovation aimed at helping facility managers unlock additional value within their building portfolios. “Leading solution providers are investing in new products that leverage increased open integration of building operating systems as a catalyst to drive increased value from facility management,” states Derrek Clarke, Real Estate, Energy and Facility Management Industry Analyst at Verdantix. Independent research firm Verdantix identifies 20 new technology firms as “Smart Innovators” in the Facility Optimization Management market according to the recently published report, “Smart Innovators: Facility Optimization Management”.
“The silos in facility management are finally being broken down. The result is that it doesn’t make sense to just talk about energy management, or just try to thin down building operations, or to have a standalone initiative about wellbeing – it’s all coming together,” states Rodolphe d’Arjuzon, Managing Director at Verdantix. “Facility optimization management is a philosophy that will mean different things to each decision maker in the real estate value chain. Some will look to lower costs across energy, maintenance and building automation and controls, while others will focus on how these factors drive wellbeing at work and productivity, and still others will see the main benefits on equipment uptime, and longer lifecycles.”
With this in mind, the Verdantix report “Smart Innovators: Facility Optimization Management” provides an analysis of innovation in this software category that has grown out energy management, and now leverages wireless sensor networks, open communication protocols, and advanced predictive analytics to facilitate maximum value generation from facility management.
“These solutions are mostly an evolution of energy management software which now reaches into asset management, maintenance operations, fault detection and diagnostics and can replace BMSs on small sites. What’s more is that we’re seeing firms use these solutions to drive improvements in their core operations too,” claims Derrek Clarke, Verdantix Industry Analyst and author of the report.
The report identifies the following 20 solution providers as “Smart Innovators” in the Facility Optimization Management market: Bigfoot CMMS, Corrigo, Demand Logic, Dude Solutions, eMaint, ENTOUCH, Envizi, Evora Global, Johnson Controls, KGS Buildings, Opinum, Panoramic Power, Powerhouse Dynamics, Schneider Electric, Siemens, Switch Automation, Trackplan, Verisae and Viridity Energy.
