Building management systems are a vital component to any data centre facility. It is an infrastructure control system that is installed with the aim to make secure and reliable buildings. The system allows for centralized management of infrastructure equipment through integrated computer-based application and ensures operations are being run efficiently and securely. It gives access to control and monitor activities like ventilation, lighting, power control, fire and security systems, lifts/elevators, plumbing system etc.

Over the time, it has been brought into wide application in providing the comfort and safety it aims at. They are seen as as the infrastructure of optimal utilisation of workforce and electric power and because of that these systems are not just restricted to commercial buildings, they are being installed in residential buildings as well. Owing to the developments because of this technology, the industry is expected to reach a compound annual growth rate of 14.8%.

Moreover, the building management is gaining a lot of importance as the number of people in the office or residential building is increasing each day. The need for optimal power utilisation and security of the people working grabs the attention. Now is the time when the scope is rapidly increasing, and builders or homemakers make sure that they install these systems during the time of construction. The best part about Building Management System is that the system is accessible from any location.

Another added value proposition is the ADMS (Advanced Distribution Management System) in the building which helps in cutting down on unnecessary power leaks or shortage of supply of any resource. It manages the bifurcation of energy and other control based resources as power distribution must be consistent. Supervisory control computers are often not hardened or fault-tolerant, but they bring a higher level of computational capability to the control system. They are used to host valuable advanced control applications that are significant to carry out operations.

With the help of Internet of Things, it has become easier and possible to use a distribution management system with advanced building control. This integration has served to back up the redundant servers, and provide monitoring and alerts to ensure all aspects of the system are operating correctly. It guarantees only the approved individuals to enter at all times. It is a major leap in the advancement of infrastructure technology as it has not only granted control and security but also has optimised the power utilised in the process. Adopting this way forward is the future of infrastructural development.
