Mr. Toby Considine

Considine is co-chair of the OASIS oBIX Technical Committee and has been working with enterprise applications and integration of embedded control systems for 20 years. As a systems specialist in facilities services at the University of North Carolina, he has struggled with the network demands, poor data sharing, and non-scalable security issues posed by last-generation control systems. This led to his focus on open discoverable data standards for control systems. Before coming to UNC, he worked to integrate other silo processes into the enterprise for companies including The Architect’s Collaborative, Reebok, and Digital Equipment Corporation.
