Power Up Your
Service Chain

The nation’s grid system presents challenges and opportunities to advance the capabilities of today’s power distribution companies. The Internet of Things is lighting up this system of sensors, smart meters, communication networks, and data management systems to improve communication between utility companies and their customers. 

This means new opportunities for utilities like:

Operations and maintenance cost savings

Improved outage management, service restoration, and voltage monitoring

Reduced peak demand, lower wholesale power purchase costs

New ways to compete differently

We help utility companies action the insights from smart grid data to advance their business processes. Our software solutions help utility distributors predict and prevent equipment failure, improve reliability, reduce downtime, and deliver services that go beyond the meter to help customers be more informed energy consumers.

Sense 

The connectivity and information flow driven by IoT creates petabytes of data. Accelerating the path from data to action is critical, and that’s where machine learning comes into play.

Not all data is created equal, nor does it need to be collected at the same frequency, so each organization sets the rules that make sense for them.

We leverage Microsoft Azure’s machine learning and data science capabilities to analyze the data in motion and eliminate the “noise.”

What remains is a library of interesting, uncommon events. These outliers help the company better identify and predict when such events are likely to occur, giving them better control of asset maintenance, system reliability, and production optimization.

Respond

For every detection, there must be a complementary diagnosis or response. This response often entails a hunt for clues across many applications to determine the best course for mitigation. Commonly, the business uses spreadsheets, ad hoc reporting, and internal knowledge to tackle these processes. 

Our solutions unite both the data analysis and the business processes to present diagnostic information, workflow orchestration, and case management all in a single experience.

Working together, they initiate the best business outcome, whether that is auto-correction (self-healing) or a back-office correction (remote meter reset) or a truck roll (meter replacement).
Manual processes once prime for error are now automated, interconnected, business-changing process improvements that enable the organization to more precisely manage demand.

 Act

Anticipate, detect and resolve problems faster than ever before to deliver an unmatchable consumer experience.

Utilities today face many challenges

  • Costs are rising faster than demand and revenues
  • Consideration and management of alternative energy sources
  • Regulatory and liability risk
  • Access to talent
  • Increasing commissioner and consumer pressure

Applying smart devices and other IoT technologies and embedding advanced analytics to become a digital utility fuels innovation within the organization and transforms the way it manages energy, empowers consumers, and continually innovates.

The result is optimized generation, transmission and distribution, and a seamless experience that provides real decision-making value to consumers in an age of increasing energy choice.

Although run-to-fail has become commonplace, it is no longer acceptable to a utility business or its customers.

Envision a future free of software silos where the grid, employees, and customers converge on a unified platform for an advanced, automated service chain that improves the lives of everyone along it.
