Big Data Management & Integration

Data management for electric utilities is becoming increasingly complex. In the United States, smart grid technologies and other connected devices are being installed in an aging infrastructure system. More and more, everyday objects are becoming interconnected. Household appliances and other consumer electronics are now enabled with sensors and exchanging data with other devices and systems (IoT).

For utilities, monitoring and operating the grid will become increasingly difficult as these interconnected devices generate growing amounts of data for utilities to collect, share and manage. The management and utilization of data generated from these different components of the electrical system will be crucial for continued and improved operations.

In this episode of the Be Energized Podcast Thorsten Heller explores the concept of “Big Data” management and integration – the management and integration of data so large and complex that it is not feasible to do so using traditional data processing applications.
