About


The Big Data and Analytics Forum 2022 will be held in Sydney and online on Thursday, June 23. 

The evolution of big data:

Within the built environment, big data is the collection of information from all building systems and the external data used within them. The most common source of big data is building management systems (BMS).

Although this information has been around for many years, historically it has been used to validate temperature complaints or system operation over the course of a week. However, the introduction of analytics is radically changing the situation. It is now possible, for instance, to track and trend historical patterns to help diagnose faults or equipment deterioration. Using this previously unexploited big data is significantly altering the way buildings are managed and maintained.
 
About the event:

Over the past three years, AIRAH’s Big Data and Analytics Forum series has provided an overview of big data, looking at high-level data analytics case studies and technical presentations.

In 2022, the full-day Forum will focus on driving value out of data. We will look at lessons learnt from implementing big data and analytics strategies, and share insights into what the future of big data holds. This year’s Forum will give delegates the opportunity to connect with industry leaders from across the built environment.
