The Intel Building Management Platform features PowerTools device and data management technology from CANDI, an operating system from Wind River and McAfee security. The problems the Intel BMP is meant to solve, Intel says, revolve around the difficulty and expense of integrating incompatible legacy systems and the data they produce.

About the Author: CANDI Controls
Steve Raschke and Mike Anderson founded CANDI in 2009 with the idea that control systems should cost less, be easier to use, embrace best-in-class products and spawn new applications that benefit people and the environment. CANDI recognized early on that if we wanted to disrupt the cost and scalability limitations of the smart building market, we had to take a completely new approach. Today our talented team includes cross-platform software developers, systems integration specialists, IT administrators, user interface designers, and sales and marketing professionals. Our offices are located in the San Francisco East Bay near Silicon Valley. Google hosts Candi’s cloud services on Internet backbone routes in Silicon Valley and elsewhere.
