Infocast is proud to present the inaugural event, Big Data for Utilities Summit: Using Big Data to Enhance Utility Costumer Engagement and Relations, June 4-6, 2013, in Dallas, TX. This is the first of a series of data analytics events from Big Data University, the hub of data intelligence.
The enormous amount of data created by the Smart Grid offers utilities unprecedented opportunities, with one utility reporting an increase of 1000% in data flow after rolling out smart meters across its territory. Skillfully applied, data analytics can enable a utility to better understand and engage its customers, reduce demand and consumption, improve billing and collection, speed outage and repair response times and enhance customer relations. However, most utilities lack both the systems and the internal expertise to take full advantage of these opportunities.
The Big Data for Utilities Summit: Using Big Data to Enhance Utility Customer Engagement and Relations will bring utility executives and senior management seeking guidance on implementing analytics strategies together with leading providers of business services, analytics systems and services. The event will feature ample opportunities to network where vendors can hear first-hand about the challenges utilities face in effectively dealing with the data they've accumulated, and utilities can learn about the software, analytic and platform solutions the IT industry experts have created specifically for the utility sector to address these challenges.
The summit will feature speakers from Teradata Inc., IGS Energy, Oncor Electric Delivery, OGE Energy Corp., Centerpoint Energy, TXU, District of Columbia Water & Sewer, California PUC along with many more.
