February 12, 2014 (Newswire) - DataArt, a custom software development firm that builds advanced solutions for select industries, announced today that Artyom Astafurov, Chief Innovation Officer, will speak at the upcoming 2014 Smart Energy Summit: Engaging the Consumer, February 17-19 in Austin, Texas. Astafurov will participate in the session "Interoperability Challenges and New Solutions" on February 17, at 4:30 pm.
The presentation is part of the Smart Energy Summit's pre-show workshop "Accelerating the Adoption of Energy Management," and examines different approaches to interoperability, both in the home and in the cloud.
Parks Associates research shows that approximately 66% of all U.S. broadband households find a smart home bundled package (including a variety of home safety, security, and management offerings) appealing.
"In the smart energy sector, when things are connected, making the connectivity work is very important." said Artyom Astafurov, Chief Innovation Officer of DataArt. "It is also important to lower the entry barrier and provide engineers and innovators with the right tools so they can focus on the actual features of smart home packages rather than interoperability, protocols and communications. It is important to keep attracting the developer community and opening doors to new participants in the API economy."
The fifth-annual Smart Energy Summit will be held at the Four Seasons Hotel and feature keynote presentations from Nest, Comcast, Austin Energy, ecobee, and Lowe's.
"Convergence in the connected home creates competition and partnership opportunities to provide energy management services to the mass market," said Tom Kerber, Director of Research on Home Controls and Energy at Parks Associates. "Technology trends within the connected home must be considered when developing and revising the utility home area network roadmap."
