Find out more about IMS Evolve’s role as a vendor for enterprises in Energy Management and Optimisation in our new blog.
IMS Evolve is proud to have been included in the Gartner Market Guide for Commercial and Industrial Energy Management and Optimisation Systems (EMOS) report, as a Representative Vendor in Energy Management and Optimization Systems.
IMS Evolve’s technology is unlocking savings and efficiencies to achieve energy optimisation for some of the world’s largest organisations. Solution-driven outcomes are being delivered by providing targeted energy strategies that drive informed automation, take corrective action and leverage dynamic energy management capabilities.
By building IoT into the heart of our customers' operations, the IMS Evolve machine-learning, controls-agnostic platform integrates existing infrastructure into a modern systems architecture to collect, normalise, process and translate real-time estate-wide data at asset level.
This drives advanced levels of monitoring and management and enables IMS Evolve to identify areas for optimisation and implement energy strategies to high-consuming assets, such as refrigeration, HVAC and lighting, whilst protecting the integrity of core deliverables, such as asset performance, customer satisfaction and food safety and quality.
Proven at speed and scale, this accessible approach to digital transformation and energy optimization removes the costly and disruptive requirement of new infrastructure often associated with such projects and empowers organisations to reduce consumption and achieve ESG and sustainability goals without the traditional barriers to adoption.
We believe this Gartner report sets the scene of the evolving energy landscape, as their research states that “business leaders engaged in sustainability suggests that 89% of heavy (supply-chain-based) industries either already have or plan to deploy digital EMOS solutions within the next two years”.
The report also states that “Energy has become a strategic boardroom issue due to risks associated with reliability of energy supply, security, increasing costs, evolving carbon regulations and ESG expectations.” For IMS, we believe that this highlights the evolving energy focus for businesses. The report recommends executive leaders considering investing in an EMOS must, “optimize the value of an EMOS by improving the digital footprint within your organization to gather, organize, integrate, store and analyze energy information across the enterprise, and to action insights and interact dynamically with other enterprise tools."
Significantly though, the report reveals “The energy landscape continues to change quickly and the impacts of the European energy crisis and the broader energy transition will continue for years to come.” In our opinion, this puts a spotlight on the emerging energy optimisation market and highlights its significance in achieving organisational success against a backdrop of challenging scenarios.
We believe that our unique approach to energy optimisation differentiates IMS’s offering from that of other vendors. Not only do we pave an achievable route to digitalisation, we take informed action and drive focused automations to achieve efficiencies and reduce consumption through initiatives such as software-driven lighting schedules and season control strategies. Additionally, we implement extended capabilities, such as Demand Response and Load Shifting, to deliver more holistic energy optimisation outcomes that not only answer today's immediate challenges, but also provide flexibility and growth opportunities in the future for our customers.
In our opinion, the inclusion in this recent Gartner report is a testament to IMS Evolve’s energy optimisation capabilities and we are proud to have been recognised in what we think is a burgeoning market.
