Hybrid data lake architectures for advanced OT analytics at the edge

Horizon 2020, Podcast

Episode Summary

The complexity of systems to satisfy evolving business needs is increasing as more data is collected and the available tools to create insights become more sophisticated. In addition, grid edge innovation is helping to drive one of the most radical transitions in the sector – a move from a centralized energy system to one that is more decentralized, more local and more efficient.

In this podcast, Kathryn Vince-Odozi and Keith Armstrong from Dell Technologies talk about hybrid and distributed data lake architecture for advanced operational technology (OT) analytics and the market forces behind Edge Computing – and break down what it means for utilities.

  • Key trends in the energy sector from a data management perspective
  • How to build a modern, secure OT data lake architecture at the edge
  • First steps in creating an OT data lake for utilities
  • Creating more value from data
