The referenced article from “Automated Buildings” I thinks adds to the discussion about IT involvement.
Article from one with IT experience which supports not putting too much on IT but keep it separate and work with IT.
Communications technology is advancing so rapidly, we must find ways to advance the Building Network Technologies (BNT) used by BACnet just to keep pace with what is available.
I know this sounds like heresy just to mention, but maybe BACnet/IP (or an enhanced version) will be the standard. With this approach we would not be reinventing the wheel each step of the way.
My 2 cents worth (I’m not sure if the saying has changed of late?)
