12 May Breaking the limits of Energy Management Software
Barcelona, Spain – May 12, 2015 – This new API further confirms DEXMA’s commitment towards the Energy Efficiency sector. With a quicker, simpler and easily extensible API, DEXMA is breaking the limits opening its platform to a completely new ecosystem of Applications to manage energy efficiency in Buildings, Retail and Industry.
What is an Application Programming Interface?
An API (Application Programming Interface) is a set of tools for building software applications. In other words, an API is the machines’ language. The way a computer, mobile phone or other kinds of devices access data. In our context, examples of data would be energy consumption or information about the localizations. This interface is essential for the DEXCell Energy Apps Market.
The increasing number of customers that wanted to customize or expand DEXCell Energy Manager to better fit their needs led to the decision to upgrade the existing API. This is possible with the new interface, which enables the platform to help small and big companies to tackle the most complex energy management challenges.
“DEXMA provides a great out-of-the-box energy management platform, although sometimes this is not enough for large complex projects. Now we provide a fully managed REST API to build as many features as you want” – said Joan Pinyol, CEO of the company.
With DEXMA’s platform, now developers can build complex, hyper-customized, large-scale analytics and data science features directly into their web, mobile, or Internet of Things applications. Software teams use our platform to build analytics products or features for anyone they’d like, including marketers. For example, developing a system that allows to maximize the solar energy use depending on the level of demand (Midnattssol project) or Demand Forecast Assessment (DFA), Automatic and Semi-Automatic Demand Side Management (SaDSM/ADSM), Energy Procurement (EP) and Demand Response (DR) in the eQualtiq project.
“DEXMA releases its new API to expand the power of energy efficiency”
“The new API is simpler, faster, organized and very structured. Thus, easier to work with and understand. The time needed to develop a new app is reduced by 40%” – said Guillem Corominas, Development Director.
Together with this new API, DEXMA has launched its new professional services where we offer to third parties the development of those new Applications on top of DEXCell Energy Manager Software. Feel free to send us a note explaining your requests and we will be happy to point you in the direction we think will work best for your needs.
