Energy and Utility Sector embracing Cloud Computing: The Transformation Journey
Jyotsana Sharma - ASSOCIATE MANAGER | November 28, 2018

The energy and utilities industry for several decades has been performing the stereotypes. It has little to do with strategies of winning over competition and customers. All and sundry are vocal about the challenges which we are conscious about; however, none exchange a thought and ponder about the seamless keys and answers.

The energy industry is seeking solutions for not just providing renewable and nonrenewable resources but evolving and focusing on the asks of the patrons. 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.

Big Data and Analytics for Energy and Utilities
Akshat Joshi - Technical Manager | November 26, 2018

India faced one of the major blackouts in July 2012. The entire northern half of the country was devoid of electricity for two full days. 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.

Finding Big Data utility for the Utility sector
Gaurav Sharma - Associate Director | November 26, 2018

No sector can claim to be as crucial to customers as the utility sector. Simple reasons: they are responsible for the most essential ingredients of our modern life and eventually our existence. But no sector can also claim to be so slow in responding to the changing landscape, especially technology, as this one. This is probably because economically it was never challenged, the players were few and the entry barriers were high. Most of the organizations had a monopoly or proprietary attitude toward the customers. To say the least, the competition was never powerful enough for them to radically change or invest in the cutting-edge technology.
