Situational Intelligence Suite for Utilities
Utilities around the world are being challenged by a similar set of problems: a decades-old infrastructure, an aging workforce, an increasingly demanding customer base, tighter and more punishing regulations, constant threats from natural and man-made disasters, and technology that is ill-equipped to handle the information needed to respond to these demands. And with increasing investments in smart meters and smart grids, the volume of data is increasing exponentially, making it difficult to not only understand its significance, but also to determine how one piece of information relates to another within a certain context and in a coherent manner.
Situational Intelligence to the Rescue
To handle this complexity, a new breed of software is required. This software must deliver real-time information to the operators and managers that need to make fast informed decisions. Delaying those decisions or making them with incomplete or inaccurate information could cost lives and money, cause property damage, and in the case of catastrophic events, signficantly impact countries and economies.
Four Comprehensive Solutions
Space-Time Insight's Situational Intelligence Suite for Utilities consists of four comprehensive solutions that greatly simplify the monitoring of critical assets, hasten the response to crises and outages, and optimize the use of renewable energy. These solutions work in conjunction with enterprise applications and other existing infrastructure, incorporating data from all these sources into intuitive geospatial and analytic displays that provide at-a-glance assurance that systems are functioning normally, and alerts and alarms based on personalized business rules when they are not.
Each solution consists of one or more composite applications that combine interfaces to appropriate data sources with business rules, processes and intuitive displays. Each composite includes the ability for operators to visualize information, analyze and correlate it, and take action on situations that need attention.
The solutions are:
Smart Meter Intelligence
Correlate your meter feeds with meter data management, billing, customer service, field service and other enterprise data to deliver visual insights into the revenue and operational performance of deployed meters.
Visualize and monitor your grid and PMU performance, and respond rapidly and proactively to natural and man-made disasters that could cause outages.
Use condition based maintenance and asset health monitoring to avoid asset failures over time, and determine the effect of weather conditions on asset performance and cost.
Optimize the use of renewable energy by visualizing all sources, and using weather and cloud cover data to identify trends and make more accurate projections for energy needs.
