Tridium Acquires DataEye Energy Analytics Application From Controlco
Cloud-based Analytics Platform To Help NiagaraAX Customers Reduce Energy Costs, Improve Efficiency
Las Vegas, April 28, 2014—Tridium, a global leader in open platforms and automation solutions, announced today that it has acquired DataEye, an energy analytics application, from Controlco, a California-based controls products and solutions provider. The DataEye application will be incorporated into Tridium’s industry-leading Niagara AX automation platform to provide customers with data and information to improve energy efficiency.
The only cloud-based analytics engine native to the Niagara platform, DataEye can provide real-time, historical information on energy efficiency opportunities in Niagara users’ facilities, along with the economic impact of making improvements. Tridium expects the DataEye module to be available to the Niagara community later this year.
“The Niagara platform helps our customers around the world manage large and complex systems, but ‘big data’ is useless without analytics that make it actionable. DataEye will bring a cloud-based analytics engine to the global Niagara community,” said Nino DiCosmo, president of Tridium, who announced the acquisition at Tridium’s 2014 Niagara Summit, a conference for developers and customers. “Having a Niagara-based analytics tool is simpler for integrators to configure and install, and provides end-users with the ability to make better decisions on energy efficiency investments. This is an example of partner-driven innovation that we welcome.”
“We are long-standing supporters of Niagara and recognize the power of building applications using this framework,” said Brian Turner, president of Controlco. “We look forward to working with Tridium moving forward and continuing to innovate at a high level in the energy and automation space.”
