Navigant Research Leaderboard Report: Building Energy Management Systems

Assessment of Strategy and Execution for 15 Intelligent Building Software Solutions Providers

The intelligent buildings market continues to be the source of innovation in technology designed for commercial facility optimization. Building energy management systems (BEMSs) first emerged over a decade ago as software solutions to minimize utility costs and support strategic business decisions around energy consumption. Today, the market is gaining momentum worldwide, and it remains competitive and fragmented. Customers are still challenged to differentiate between software offerings in a landscape consisting of vastly different vendors and solutions that range across a spectrum of capabilities.

A BEMS is the keystone technology for the intelligent building. The BEMS market has evolved in tandem with the intelligent buildings ecosystem of technologies, including control systems, wireless technologies, and services. This category of software is the vehicle that can translate the increasing array of facility data into actionable information. BEMSs help customers recognize and act on opportunities to improve system performance and behavior that deliver cost savings and business improvements. The business case for these solutions, however, continues to morph as the market begins the journey toward maturation. Increasingly, the solutions that fall under the BEMS category have use cases outside energy efficiency and management, such as operational efficiency, space utilization, productivity, occupant engagement, and sustainability.

This Navigant Research Leaderboard Report examines the strategy and execution of 15 intelligent building solutions providers that are active in the global BEMS market. The vendors are rated on 12 criteria: vision; go-to-market strategy; partners; production strategy; technology; geographic reach; sales, marketing, and distribution; product performance; product quality and reliability; product portfolio; pricing; and staying power. Using Navigant Research’s proprietary Leaderboard methodology, vendors are profiled, rated, and ranked with the goal of providing industry participants with an objective assessment of these companies’ relative strengths and weaknesses in the global BEMS market.
