The Green Quadrant® report compares 14 enterprise-class energy management software applications to help corporate buyers save time, reduce cost and mitigate risk in supplier selection. The report also reveals that as corporate energy management and sustainability programs mature, spending on energy management software solutions is projected to increase. The definition of the energy management buyer is expanding as well. As the report states, companies such as Hara understand that the strategic energy management value proposition appeals to CFOs and line-of-business managers as well as facilities and operation managers.

Hara is recognized in the report for providing "a data-centric approach to energy and resource management." The application is designed to "resolve multiple inefficiencies in the entire energy and resource value chain through data aggregation and analytics."

The report continues, "Hara scored highest amongst its peers for energy reporting and analysis, with best-in-class scores for voluntary reporting and the quality of its dashboard, and achieved high scores for master data management, security and data audit, and carbon reporting and analysis."

According to the report, for companies with "increasingly squeezed budgets seeking energy cost reductions" or "little to zero visibility of current energy consumption and spend" Hara's solution provides "strong energy budgeting and planning capabilities" and "robust data capture."

"The market has evolved, and global businesses today are doing more than just collecting energy data," states Rodrigo J Prudencio, CEO, Hara. "They are analyzing that data at the enterprise-level, and making strategic decisions about how to optimize their energy and resource use.

Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...
