SmartBuildings - Business model

What is the business model that you would push >


1. A one time sale;


2. a combined Sale and Service contract (who will pick up the service contract in this case) ;


3. An ESCO model where you "rent" the service to the client ;


4. Any other model?

Re: SmartBuildings - Business model

Data has value:


  • Data as a service is a first answer:  Exchange already offers data sets.
  • SW as a Service is a second answer, processing big data to extract high value results, not only at operation & maintenance side, but also at design phase.
