We need to replicate experiences with the ultimate goal of speeding up efforts to reduce carbon footprint. Stability and repeatability An excellent example of the great work Johnson Controls and Microsoft have recently accomplished together was at the FIFA World Cup in Qatar. Venue and event management company Intaleq – which oversaw preparations for the event – sought out Johnson Controls to help maximise the experience of the millions of football fans who travelled to watch the games. During the tournament, Intaleq harnessed the AI capabilities of OpenBlue Enterprise Manager to help eliminate safety risks such as unauthorised access and overcrowding. OpenBlue also helped to ensure fans were cool and comfortable, and it minimised the consumption of power and water during the event. The software generated real-time insights about the use of space and energy and air temperature in the eight stadiums that hosted the tournament. It’s this type of outcome that I want to be able to easily replicate, and Johnson Controls is on a mission to do this in every stadium.
