Siemens launches smart office suite in Dubai

Dubai, U.A.E

Siemens recently launched an IoT-enabled suite of hardware and software technologies designed to create smarter, more flexible, human-centric working spaces in the Middle East. Announced as part of the company’s activities at Gitex Technology Week in Dubai, the suite is a complementary portfolio of Siemens technologies which enable office buildings to respond intelligently to user input and environmental data

With real-time analytics, office spaces can adapt to the needs of employees for increased productivity and energy efficiency, while reducing costs.

“Today’s workforce deserves a more productive, agile and flexible working environment,” said Markus Strohmeier, Senior Executive Vice President of Regional Solutions and Services, Siemens Middle East. “A digitalised, data-driven approach to the office environment ensures that workspaces are optimised for both employee and building performance. With the Middle East focusing on smarter, people-focused cities, it’s a perfect place to embrace these technologies for the future of work.”

The Smart Office suite empowers firms to develop offices which support productivity and innovation, while giving employees a voice in deciding how and when office spaces are used. Sensors and real-time data analytics respond intelligently by learning from people, picking up behavioral patterns and personalizing the environment around them.

The suite includes technologies from Silicon Valley firms Comfy and Enlighted, both recently acquired by Siemens. Comfy is a workplace experience platform, whilst Enlighted, is an IoT platform for smart buildings consisting of multi-function sensors, distributed computing and its own network and software applications.

These platforms complement and integrate with existing technologies in the Siemens Smart Infrastructure portfolio, forming a comprehensive offering for Smart Offices in new and existing buildings. These include Desigo CC, an open building management platform; Desigo Room Automation, a range of building automation systems which integrates HVAC, lighting and shading systems; fire safety and security products and systems, and advisory and performance services.
