OREANDA-NEWS. May 26, 2016. The Siemens Building Technologies Divisions web-based Energy & Sustainability Navigator platform1 will continue to unlock the hidden potential of building data, provide transparency to support decision making processes that increase building operating efficiency, and drive cost savings for customers. Using this platform Siemens Building Technologies customers currently save 10.5 million tons of CO2 per year2. This market success has been recognized through 11 different international awards for energy efficiency.

Based on the strong market-proven3 Navigator function set for monitoring and analysis, Capgeminis IoT, data analytics, and cloud experts will work in collaboration with teams from Siemens Building Technologies, to extend and drive this complex digital transformation project, in a phased approach.

This combined setup will enable Siemens Building Technologies to expand its leading position in terms of offering energy sustainability services specifically, and data driven services in general to building operators, campus owners and corporate real estate customers. Navigators functionality will be continuously enhanced.

"Our customers expect us to provide actionable insight from digitalization and to implement ever more advanced ways of improving building performance," says Matthias Rebellius, CEO of Siemens Building Technologies.
