Reduce Operational Grid Management Expense
Ingest and Process Petabyte-Scale Data
Utility companies are facing a staggering 3,000-time increase in data as a result of smart metering and smart grid initiatives. Once utilities get a handle on how to manage big data for its primary meter-to-cash purpose, they’ll need to determine what other value or actionable intelligence they can derive.
To truly fulfill the promise of the smart grid, bringing the grid into the 21st century with modern technology, utilities will need the ability to perform more complex analysis on all of the data available, for which they’ll need a new architecture. They’ll need to be able to ingest and process petabyte-scale data from multiple sources simultaneously. They’ll also need to be able to conduct ad-hoc and “what if?” analysis and work with partners who understand their businesses and can translate that into actionable analytics.
