As utilities in North American continue to embrace the cost savings and operational efficiencies of Advanced Metering, they continue to struggle with the complexity of implementation and on-going support of Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI).

This complex infrastructure causes some utilities to experience a dampening of benefits from their AMI roll out.

The business practices of electric utilities are changing in conjunction with the deployment of Smart Meters and development of Intelligent Grids. As discussed in this white paper, the interval data provided by Smart Meters can be used for much more than just billing customers. With the right tools for access and analysis of the interval data, there are exciting new opportunities of high value that can be pursued. The goal is to extract as much value from the data as is possible in a manner that keeps costs below or commensurate to the benefits.
This is the first post in a series interviewing the practice leaders at Utegration. In this post, Henry Le, VP of Analytics and Big Data at Utegration, answers the question of what is Big Data and more.
Over $1B of Venture Capital funding was poured into blockchain technology in 2014 and 2015, and the rate is doubling annually.
