JCI on May 22 launched its cloud-driven solution, Panoptix, in the Middle East.
The launch marked the introduction of the solution in the second region of the world; two months earlier, the company launched Panoptix in North America.
Speaking on the occasion, David R Clark, the Vice President of the Panoptix programme at JCI, said, “We think the market opportunity is right in the Middle East.” Added Farhan Qureshy: “Besides the market opportunity, the government is taking the right initiatives. Dubai Municipality’s green building legislation is a case-in point.” Qureshy is the Regional Director, Communications (Middle East) for the Building Efficiency division of JCI.
JCI has timed the launch of Panoptix to go with the current market trend. In today’s world, 20% of software, Clark said, was delivered by cloud.
Panoptix will access data from a gamut of HVAC components in buildings, analyse energy trends and track energy consumption and reliability of the equipment. Through this, according to JCI, it will seek to drive up their efficiency and create savings in the range of seven per cent to 15%.
