Utilities around the world are deploying situational intelligence applications to correlate, analyze, and visualize business, operational and IoT data, spatially, over time and across network nodes. The resulting 360-degree view of the enterprise provides many benefits for their work in powering the digital economy. Our situational intelligence applications use cognitive computing, based on Kolmogorov Complexity, for real-time analysis of time series and text from connected devices. This presentation features three use cases from utilities:
  • Diagnosing smart meters in real time
  • Predicting power outages
  • Optimizing spare part replacement on wind turbines
