While the biggest challenge lies in managing the variety–rather than the volume or velocity–of IoT data, the general shift from batch- to event-based processing signals a growing interest in real-time / streaming analytics as a lever for IoT value creation. The need to harmonize these components without creating or simply shifting the bottlenecks that come with the management of high-velocity variable data puts pressure on connectivity providers, edge analytics platform players, and system integrators (SIs) to stand up new and distributed architectures to not only support, but also add value to data at any level.
In this research analysis, ABI Research analyzes what it considers to be the most significant trends and developments related to the IoT analytics industry. The first section includes the conceptual framework supporting the research, as well as a wrap-up of recent activity. The second section consists of the updated and refined forecasts on the market’s revenues, broken down by application, region, value chain component, and analytic phase (descriptive, predictive, prescriptive). A high-level revenue projection for the overall big data and analytics market is also included at the end of the section for a view of IoT analytics in a broader industry context. The final section provides a high-level assessment of a number of relevant vendors to exemplify the different parts of the value chain.

Join asset analytics experts from Arizona Public Service, Siemens and Space-Time Insight to learn how these industry leaders are making data analytics the foundation of a better grid. You’ll learn:
- How to move from time- or -condition-based maintenance to risk-driven decision making
- The valuable role your current data plays in maintaining your existing grid and planning for the grid of the future
- Why you can start with analytics today, despite your fears about low-quality data
National Grid manages 7,700 km of gas transmission lines in the UK, 40 percent of which is at least 40 years old. Clearly, those aging portions of the network can’t and won’t all be replaced at once. How does National Grid use analytics to prioritize work to optimize spending, labor, and risk reduction while minimizing interruptions to service?
Luckily, pipes are like people—not all 40-year-olds are the same. They age at different rates based on maintenance, environmental conditions, operating stress and other variables.
National Grid now uses analytics and visualization across silos of data through the company to give business users greater visibility into the condition of transmission assets, including where corrosion issues are more likely to prematurely age pipes, valves and other assets. This visibility into the true state of the network speeds decision making and ensures correct prioritization of maintenance, repair and replacement work. It also provides a stronger evidence base for the next business plan.
In this webinar, National Grid’s Head of Network Engineering, David Salisbury, and Neil Barry of Space-Time Insight will describe how National Grid accelerated analytics from a proof-of-concept project to improving enterprise decision-making. Those improved decisions are changing how National Grid plans for and maintains the system.
Attendees will learn how they can gain similar results from applying next-generation analytics to their utility assets for tasks ranging from planning the next day’s repairs to deciding the next decade’s investments.
Space-Time Insight explains a risk-based asset intelligence approach and the path to true value using advanced analytics. Using examples and case studies, the webinar explains:
- How to spot hidden risk in your data
- The nature of risk
- How to analyze risk across your assets
- The value of risk-based analytics
- Risk-based planning and operations
Asset Intelligence Webinar – How to Make Analytics a Strategic Priority
While many people recognize the value of analytics in gaining insight into data across an organization, analytics initiatives often compete with other utility projects for limited funds and resources. Moving these analytics initiatives to the top of the priority queue frequently involves more than a business case and corporate buy-in. Listen to Erick Corona, Substation & Transmission Line Asset Strategy Manager – PG&E, and Steve Ehrlich, Senior Vice President, Product Management – Space-Time Insight, as they discuss the essential elements required to get your asset analytics projects funded and successfully completed.
In the webinar, you will learn:
- The importance of analytics for asset intelligence in a world overwhelmed by big data
- Strategies for gaining support across your organization for your analytics initiatives
- The role of risk in asset analytics
- How to manage through limited resources, skills and data availability
- A structured methodology for implementing asset analytics
National Grid applied a new approach to innovation using a ‘Lab’ environment to gain invaluable insight via situational intelligence into the risks lurking in the transmission system. That insight has driven innovative changes in how National Grid plans for and maintains the transmission system.
Navigating the road to success for utility asset planners and managers has never been more critical. The ability to manage the trade-offs between asset performance, risk, and financial investment of an aging asset base is constrained by regulatory pressure, new grid demands, and rapidly evolving customer relationships. Using digital technology to gain insight and ultimately meet business objectives is now required.
In the webinar, you will hear about:
- Shared thinking of asset executives through industry wide survey findings: Accenture’s Digitally Enabled Grid program – 2014 edition
- The rationale for Digital Asset Management
- A perspective on how asset health, condition, and performance are related to safety and reliability.
- How to leverage asset analytics to optimize return on investment
- How using situational intelligence will help ongoing compliance with your asset strategy
- Considerations and impact to the workforce today and tomorrow.
Transforming into the Digital Utility: Six Steps to Implementing Effective Asset Analytics
Surrounded by data-producing assets but still struggling to make sense of what it all means, electric, gas and water utilities are looking for answers and for ways to drive greater capital effectiveness.
Finding answers to enterprise-wide strategic questions requires an approach across technology and business disciplines: developing metrics and metric values, integrating data, and aligning processes. In this webinar you will learn:
• Advanced capital planning and the need for asset analytics
• The technical architectural and data integration considerations
• What to measure – KPIs, metrics to optimize asset intelligence
• The real-life benefits of taking a risk-based approach to prioritize capital and maintenance expenditures
• How to improve planning using historical and predictive time and location asset performance data
Asset Intelligence – Using analytics to increase reliability and manage total cost of asset ownership.
The growing use of asset monitoring and management technologies is creating a new paradigm in asset management. This new model expands the use of existing data to arrive at a significantly deeper and more precise assessment of the utility operation’s asset fleet. Yet compelling questions remain for the asset manager:
- What are the primary variables that impact the health of my asset fleet risks?
- What are the primary variables that impact such KPIs as SAIDI?
- Which asset failures lead to the largest consequences?
- Is my asset investment planning targeted enough?

The grid operations team at Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) has a tremendous amount of knowledge about the company’s infrastructure. So much so that they were able to manage the SMUD grid using a paper wall map, partially accessed by a ladder, and cabinets filled with blueprints and other documents managed by internal knowledge. Then the smart grid arrived and SMUD encountered first-hand what the industry has come to know as ‘the big data problem’.
