Critical facility operations and data centers

The role of the facility manager has changed. The need for analytics to anticipate and plan for the future is increasing. But for good analytics, you need good information and data. Facility operations rely on data insights gathered from the PI System. Manage operational challenges. Prevent asset failure. Zero in on energy-efficient opportunities. Maintain resilient operations.

The power of the PI System for facilities and data centers

Buildings account for an estimated 40% of total energy consumption globally. In the US alone, businesses spend over $100 billion in energy each year.

That's why so many large facilities—from academic campuses to hospitals, military bases to corporate data centers—rely on the PI System for their operations. Facility managers know it can help them minimize energy consumption, improve efficiency, and control maintenance expenses.

From HVAC to power generation, facilities incorporate many complex systems that ensure comfort, health, and safety.  While they are interconnected in function, the data to and from these systems is rarely integrated to maximize efficiency, resilience, and sustainability.

The PI System puts all this essential asset data into the hands of facilities managers, plant engineers, and sustainability officers, allowing them to understand and optimize their facility operations in real time.
