The APA Group sees one of the greatest technological challenges in the constantly rising volumes of virtual data and refers to estimates from Oracle that the information on the Internet is growing by 40 percent each year. Big data is thus a hot topic, and the APA Group is keen to use this data to optimize quality of life, costs and environmental protection. That's why it has developed NAZCA, a system that is being previewed at HANNOVER MESSE 2017. The key features of NAZCA are its ease of use, scalability and multiserver architecture. It has been designed to work with Microsoft’s Azure technology and is essentially a combination of three subsystems - BMS, SMS and EMS, which are systems for managing buildings, security and energy. NAZCA meets the ISO 50001 standard and offers real economic benefits through monitoring of energy and media use, thus cutting the costs related to using buildings.
