Smart building IoT company Softdel has inked a strategic partnership with Software AG, a provider of Enterprise Integration & IoT platforms.
Under this new partnership, Softdel and Software AG say they are bringing together their complementary solutions to achieve the increasing demand for better energy efficiency, reduced carbon footprint, occupant comfort, and efficient facility management especially for hospitals, airports, and other mission-critical buildings.
Softdel’s B-IoT gateway platform, “Edifice Edge”, and Software AG with its “Cumulocity” IoT platform have jointly created an end-to-end smart buildings solution. The two firms said that this technology partnership enables interconnectivity and interoperability among all devices and equipment installed in a building.The solution also provides a framework for generating real-time building analytics based on AI and ML technologies.
The EdificeEdge platform integrates and collects data from thousands of building assets (sensors, actuators, controllers, lighting control systems, thermostats, HVAC systems, and other building equipment, etc.) over BACnet and Modbus communications protocols. Built on a modern microservices-based architecture and using containerization technology at the edge, Edifice Edge offers flexibility to run compute-intensive applications enabling tomorrow’s AI-enabled digital buildings, according to the partners.
Sachin Deshmukh, managing director at Softdel, said: “We see tremendous value from our partnership with Software AG to drive our vision of connecting devices, enterprises, and people. Our EdificeEdge platform integrates perfectly within the Cumulocity IoT ecosystem from Software AG. We look forward to jointly delivering exceptional value to our customers as part of their transformational journey around smart buildings and infrastructure.”
Sunil Dalal, founder and chairman of Softdel, added: “By 2025, there will be more than 40 billion connected devices installed in smart buildings. These devices will need seamless integration and the ability to communicate with each other to offer real-time actionable insights. Our partnership with Software AG is a step in the right direction to continue our efforts to bring exceptional value to our customers.”
“As organizations, cities and public authorities strive to be more efficient, sustainable and digital, getting smarter and more connected buildings is a vital step. Not only can these projects improve the experience of being in a building for its occupants, but they can also improve safety and reduce the environmental impact all at the same time. Working in partnership with Softdel we’re striving to make that a reality for more and more organizations,” said Jason Johns, head of global alliances and channels at Software AG.
