Richmond, VA – October 30, 2019 – The Project Haystack Organization (www.project-haystack.org),  a collaborative community addressing the challenge of utilizing semantic modeling and tagging to streamline the interchange of data among different systems, devices, equipment and software applications, today announced they have published the sixth issue of their Connections Magazine.

The Connections Magazine Fall 2019 issue reports on the latest news from the Project Haystack community from around the world and documents how rapidly the data revolution is overtaking the built environment. Both IT and OT contingents are recognizing that sematic data modeling and metadata tagging is key to clearing the hurdles related to ease-of-use, unified data flow, edge-to-cloud, and data security. Not to be missed is the fact that the storytellers in this issue include the end users of the data generated by equipment systems including commissioning experts, smart building consultants, large-portfolio property managers and developers – all of whom are demanding smarter, interoperable solutions, and companies that are responding by providing Haystack-compatible products and solutions
