Placeholder for Trend963 replacement project.
Trend963 is a legacy Business Management System (BMS), procured over 30 years ago by UoE. Trend963 help Estates Building Services team to provide centralised control of distributed heating for 500-600 actuators within the UoE campus.
As part of the Estates Windows Server upgrade project, EST127, it was identified that Trend863 is based on obsolete technology and its support is coming to End-of-Life
A solution should be identified to upgrade or replace the current Trend963 technology to assure ongoing support for Estates energy controls function.
Due to the pressure on staff resources, there is no current plan to consider a fully integrated solution for heating controls.

Initial investigastion: 5 days
