Haystack Connect 2017

Where Data Gets Real

There is no question that data from the Internet of Things and the analytics and visualization technologies that have emerged to create value from that data are revolutionizing the way we manage and operate buildings, equipment systems energy and our physical world.

Along with real, tangible results, the field is also experiencing a significant amount of hype. This hype can result in confusion for end users and even the most experienced industry practitioners.

It’s a known fact that machine data can produce amazing results – it’s also known that it takes real work, knowledge of the underlying systems, and new skills to implement successful data solutions. The Project Haystack community is singularly focused on addressing the real world challenges involved in using machine data to create and drive value.

Haystack Connect 2017 will be the place where data and creating value from it gets real. The sponsors, speakers, and technical program will provide attendees with the most concrete, factual information available. This Information will help owners, operators, and systems integrators and end-users separate reality from hype. Vendors will present solutions that demonstrate their tangible value from hype-filled claims that gloss over the real-world challenges.

If you want to know the real story and see the real technologies that are changing our physical world, there is only one place to be – Haystack Connect 2017.

The most significant advances in technology adoption are driven not by a single company, but rather by collaboration among a community of users with an interest in advancing the state of the industry.

Haystack Connect 2017 will once again bring together the systems integrators, technology providers, A&E firms, OEMs and end users who are leading the way to advance smart-device applications by streamlining the interoperability of systems and devices for a more efficient, sustainable environment.

- John Petze
Executive Director, Project Haystack

When it comes to data, it is one thing to have access to it, it's another to make it actionable. Simply put, the operational data from smart devices and equipment systems lacks information to describe its own meaning.

Without meaning, a time consuming manual effort is required before that data can be used effectively to generate value. At Haystack Connect 2017, you’ll see how it’s being done.

- Marc Petock
Executive Secretary, Project Haystack

Becoming a member of the Project Haystack Organization is very exciting for us. Our common goals mean we can collaborate to create innovative building systems which provide easy and understandable access to the wealth of available data.

We look forward to actively participating in the organization, their Haystack Connect conferences and working together with all the members in the future.

Associate & Controls Engineer, Arup
