The Challenge

  • The sustainable (Green) real estate industry relies on investors and Fund Ratings with data and analytics to manage and make investment decisions based on benchmarks and performance data.
  • Because GRESB validates, benchmark scores and performance data, our client required an integrated solution that gathered vast amounts of data to report the findings to the GRESB.
  • Live data needed to be constantly accumulated, analyzed and reported from thousands of devices that connect to, and monitored, the buildings’ utilities such as water, electric, garbage and gas for reporting and tending to issues to ensure all buildings are running at optimal capacity (Energy Star Levels).

The Solution

Amazech’s CTO and the Project Manager jointly spent a sizeable amount of time in the first couple of weeks with the Client to come up with a proper BI solution keeping the long-term perspective in mind. A well-thought-out solution was recommended meeting Client’s budget.

Angular JS6 was finalized for the web application. Microsoft Power BI was shortlisted for reporting and dashboarding needs which underwent changes to Tableau. The initial project plan covering the entire scope was put in a time frame. The project was broken down into various modules and sub-modules.
