    Talking 88 Acres: How Microsoft Quietly Built the City of the Future

    Hello everyone! Have you heard about 88 Acres? No? Don't worry, I'll tell you! 88 Acres is basically the story of how a group of engineers built Microsoft's smart campus. It sounds interesting, eh? I would like tell you guys, it is also the very first story on a new stage, here.

    A small, covert team of engineers at Microsoft cast aside suggestions that the company spend US$60 million to turn its 500-acre headquarters into a smart campus to achieve energy savings and other efficiency gains. Instead, applying an “Internet of Things meets Big Data” approach, the team invented a data-driven software solution that is slashing the cost of operating the campus’ 125 buildings. The software, which is saving Microsoft millions of dollars, has been so successful that the company and its partners are now helping building managers across the world deploy the same solution. And with commercial buildings consuming an estimated 40 percent of the world’s total energy, the potential is huge.


    Happy Reading!
