Big Data & Analytics in the Energy & Utilities industry
Amit Handoo - CLIENT PARTNER & REGIONAL SALES DIRECTOR (US) - Utilities | November 28, 2018

The energy and utility industry typically comprises power plants generating electricity, transmitted over long-distance transmission lines and then finally supplied over distribution lines to residences and businesses.

The energy and utilities industry wants to expand horizons across geographies quickly and cost efficiently. Swift solutions post integration in existing and new collaborations are the asks. Quick service renewal, hassle-free experiences for consumers is what establishments are seeking. An increasingly competitive market acts as a threat to the utilities industry to move toward a more digital world and the world of cloud computing.

More than half a decade later, whereby India now ranks as the sixth largest economy and third largest producer of energy after US and China, things still haven’t changed much. Energy Infrastructure is still vulnerable and a major portion of the energy produced by systems is either lost in transmission or stolen.
The above mentioned problem is common to the Energy and Utilities Industry, but thankfully in the age of Big Data and Analytics, solutions exist that would not only counter the loss of revenue, but would also leverage optimal consumption of the underlying assets of the Energy and Utilities Industry.
