Insights & Data for Utilities

Extract insights from the complex data generated by connected devices and sensors in the smart grid and advanced metering infrastructure. Designed to deliver useful information and insights to drive greater business value

 

In a fast-changing world of connected devices, a truly smart grid depends on suppliers’ ability to make sense of the data, routing energy to the places where it is needed most in the most efficient way.

Understanding how people and businesses use energy not only promotes more efficient consumption but also enables suppliers to optimise their assets, using analytics to predict network problems before they arise. Maintenance should be organised according to need, not schedule.

Energy providers want to build next-generation relationships with consumers; the first step is giving consumers greater control. Through data analytics, providers can help customers to match their needs to the products and services, increasing loyalty and boosting revenues

Utilities across the globe are rapidly changing their traditional analytical landscape from traditional data warehouse and reporting to a blend of EDW, Hadoop and Advanced Analytics. Smarter grids create opportunities for utilities providers, but also threats of disintermediation and decreasing relevance, as consumers learn to manage demand more effectively and create their own supply.
