The big news item is Tridium's announced partnership with IBM, which involves combining IBM's Tivoli and Maximo technologies with the Niagara and Sedona frameworks.
The funniest moment was when this guy from MGM told a story about how he became a hero after cleaning things up at the new MGM in Macau.
He's basically an old-school chiller guy, who was called to clean up a mess at this new 1.something billion dollar property. Their electric bill was up through the roof, and when he arrived he noticed 7 of 10 chillers running when it was 50F outside... among other things, there were 9,000 unacknowledged alarms on the system.
He then proceeded to tell how he ended up doing the good ol' "rip it out" procedure, then mentioned the system by name - metasys... - I could hear freddy-b laughing in my head.
Anyways, just goes to show bad contractors are everywhere. I'm sure a properly commissioned system would have worked just fine, but calling out JCI in front of 925 people was hilarious.
Here's someone else's blog about the summit.
