" New York is home to one of the most critical finance infrastructures in the world and the most pervasive big building management systems," says Murat Sonmez, executive vice president, Global Field Operations, TIBCO. "The ability to use real-time data to manage system assets, detect early warning signs and act immediately to resolve potential problems before they occur, is necessary to maintain predictable power and help keep businesses running. With TIBCO and Siemens, Con Edison is developing an architecture that will result in use cases that can act as a blue print for other urban areas."
