I&M October Meeting: Next Generation Data and Systems for Utilities

Share

Big Data is shaping the world around us in every way imaginable. The Internet of Things (IoT) is intricately weaved into society and leaves an indelible electronically recorded footprint along the way. Once ubiquitous analog devices such as clocks, phones, meters, medical devices, and even health and fitness gear have become powerful analytic tools capable of harnessing tremendous value for business and industry.

As such the utility industry is undergoing an unprecedented rate of change and demand for data collection and storage. The proliferation of smart meter, smart grid, AMI, synchrophaser, and asset monitoring devices has resulted in an explosion of Big Data. This presentation explores Big Data concepts, trends, enables, and prevalent industry technologies and data systems including historian and other data systems. Learn more about how utilities are currently deploying Big Data infrastructure, managing information for real-time operational efficiencies, and leveraging terabytes (and more) of historical data for tangible long-term benefits.
