About this paper
New volumes and types of smart grid data can significantly enhance utilities' planning capabilities, inform better market segmentation and improve engagements with customers. But the task is challenging, considering all the new data inputs combined with the complexity of GIS, SCADA, smart meter and CIS systems. To be successful, IT leaders must decide precisely what they need to accomplish with smart grid data. Then they can create an architecture and data governance model that enables easy, wide-ranging data access and relies on analytics to provide reliable energy and outstanding customer service.
