Strategic Alliances

Joining forces to capture new opportunities

Digital technology is transforming virtually every aspect of modern life. In buildings, for example, the convergence of information technology and connected lighting is opening up new application spaces where we have the opportunity to deliver significant additional value beyond illumination.

 

Lighting’s interoperability with other technical domains is a key factor. Partnering with leading players with complementary capabilities can enable us to jointly capture these exciting opportunities – the new value creation is estimated at around € 1 billion in the global office market alone! At Philips Lighting, we are committed to making these alliances work for the benefit of our customers.

Game-changer

 

Supported by network infrastructure, smartphone and cloud-based server technology, digitization is creating a vast connected network of devices, people, processes and data. This is completely transforming our competitive landscape and business models, not to mention the competencies required for success. And yet at the same time, it offers us tremendous scope to integrate our lighting with other technologies – in alliances with specialist partners – to deliver additional value beyond illumination.

High-quality lighting and information pathway

 

Take the field of building automation, for example. Contemporary office buildings are made up of a number of distinct technical domains or ‘verticals’ – lighting, HVAC, security, etc. Traditionally, the aim has been to optimize the functional performance of each of these verticals. Now, with a connected lighting system integrated with the building’s ICT infrastructure, the anonymous data gathered into clouds via luminaire-based sensors can be mined to deliver valuable granular information on how the spaces inside the building are actually being used.

Soundlight Comfort is the solution. This innovative technology, developed by Philips and Ecophon, absorbs excess sound and provides uniform, consistent light. And because of LED technology, it’s energy-efficient too.

More efficient facility management

 

In this way, management information platforms have the potential to offer application service value way beyond what is still possible by optimizing the functional performance of the individual verticals. For example, compared with the saving that may still be possible in a given situation via energy efficiency measures, a management information platform may be able to deliver a multifold saving on floor space, driven by the sensor data on room occupancy/usage.
