IBM "Things" will put the buildings talking to each others
Companies are instrumenting and connecting their industrial equipment, buildings and facilities, and vehicles with billions of sensors to create what is known as the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)
The Industrial Internet of Things is generating exponential amounts of data that is creating opportunities to identify patterns that unlock new ways of working and new business value.
According to the 2017 IBM Institute of Business Value (IBV) study, Intelligent Connections, “Sixty percent [of industrial companies] surveyed in our 2017 study are currently executing plans to incorporate IoT into their operating models. They say the main factors influencing investment in IoT are aimed at increasing efficiency.”

Buildings & Facilities

Today, 70 percent of a building’s total cost of ownership is linked to maintenance and energy costs. By combining IIoT and AI (Artificial Intelligence), retail owners and property managers can now analyze patterns of space, energy, traffic and asset usage, to create utilization strategies that reduce waste and optimize resources to maximize real estate investments. 
To address this opportunity, IBM is expanding Facilities Management (TRIRIGA) portfolio to include Building Insights, which helps businesses decode the exabytes of data that buildings generate, visualize energy use and misuse, and leverage insights from weather, historical performance, and data from other third-party analytics to optimize real-estate investments.
IBM Watson IoT platform helps organizations securely connect and collect data from multiple disparate sources and utilizes the power of Blockchain and AI-driven analytics in real-time. Leveraging the IBM Watson IoT Platform as the underlying technology, IBM Services is launching a new Connected Manufacturing offering that includes a method and approach to help our clients accelerate their IoT transformation — from strategy, implementation, and security to managed services and ongoing operations. This combined capability will help our clients connect all of their manufacturing equipment, sensors and systems to enable business improvement across OEE*, quality, lead times and productivity.
(*) - OEE is an abbreviation for the manufacturing metric Overall Equipment EffectivenessOEE takes into account the various sub components of the manufacturing process – Availability, Performance and Quality.
