Microsoft HQ - Schiphol Airport
bGrid delivered the bGrid ecosystem to enable Microsoft smart show case office.
bGrid first transformed the existing office delivering smart building functionalities such as workplace finding, colleague finding, room booking, smart cleaning, et cetera. This is implemented in a couple of weeks. The data gathered during this phase is used for the refurbishment of the Microsoft office.
During the refurbishment the data from the bGrid ecosystem is used to determine the workplace strategy based on data analytics, providing detailed insights in the required mix of space and actual required office area. The bGrid ecosystem is migrated to the new office and integrated with the building installations to offer comfort that follows you and data driven energy savings.
The bGrid ecosystem consists of the bGrid smart building platform, bOS (delivered by CGI) and MAPIQ, all hosted on the Microsoft Azure cloud. The open structure of this ecosystem enables the Microsoft partners to develop new applications utilizing the full capabilities of the ecosystem. This will make the new Microsoft HQ the show case of 'workplace 2.0'. Due to the platform setup of the bGrid such applications will automatically become available to all bGrid users!
bGrid was selected by Schiphol to provide this technology to Microsoft and on request of Microsoft.
