The Power of Data is Coming to the 2012 OSIsoft Users Conference

In just a few weeks, OSIsoft, our 2011 Sustainability Partner of the Year, will be hosting their 23rd annual Users’ Conference in San Francisco, California.

Information technologies and good data can yield insight that drives action.  In order to address Sustainability goals of any kind, an organization must be able to measure and manage their operational performance. Benchmarking, trend analysis and real-time monitoring and control capabilities are becoming required elements of energy efficiency and sustainability strategies.   Supported by the growing capabilities of cloud services and big data analytics that enable even greater insight and action, the opportunities for all of us to drive efficiency and sustainability into our operations are very exciting.

Registration for the event is still open…and attendance to the Day Zero track is free!  We look forward to seeing you, and all of our friends at OSIsoft, at the 2012 Users’ Conference in San Francisco later this month!
