IOT and Splunk Dashboard: Panel Discussion:
The need to embrace an enterprise view of building intelligence is critical. Complicated support models,
single source vendor support, and lack of standard IT hardening practices are just a few of the risks to a
customer when systems are furnished without the involvement of IT. The success of modern Enterprise
IT organizations has gone beyond the data center and the desktop, and is involved in building climate and
environment, collaboration technologies and the mission critical systems that keep a building in operation.
To make Business Intelligence successful, mature IT organization must be involved in all aspects of a modern
construction build, from utility to virtual space, and leverage sensor data found in IoT devices to gain visibility
and create a holistic view of the user/employee experience.
The Internet of Things (IoT) and Splunk Dashboards monitor the overall health of a building and enable businesses
make data driven decisions on investment of technologies and the entire user experience. The ability to see the impact
of a seemingly unrelated event drives down overall response and triage times for those events. Enterprise NOCs
can leverage a universal skillset and dashboard instead of trying to maintain visibility and knowledge of the myriad of
expert systems often found in enterprises. The potential to write the construction specifications to address
particular standards will help owners maximize the overall value of Splunk while closing the gap between
Building Intelligence and IT.
Finger Safe Power Enclosures
In many of today’s datacenters, the constantly changing infrastructure needs creates many challenges.
One major concern is adding/changing circuits without disrupting the other loads while mitigating arc flash
risk and improving worker safety. There are many ways this has been addressed from datacenter busway
to “finger safe” PDUS. We will explore some of the various methods and attempts to make the datacenter
a safer and more maintainable environment.
