Symphony of Software Saves Millions (Microsoft 88 Acres Story)

This document explains how a small, covert team of engineers at Microsoft applied an “Internet of Things meets Big Data” approach to invent a data-driven software solution based upon ICONICS COTS software. This solution is slashing the cost of operating the campus’ 125 buildings saving Microsoft millions of dollars. The application has been so successful that the company and its partners are now helping building managers across the world deploy the same solution. And with commercial buildings consuming an estimated 40 percent of the world’s total energy, the potential is huge.
