The utilities industry holds large bodies of data, constantly flowing from smart meters, sensors and other traditional or ‘tribal’ sources of data. Leveraging Business Intelligence (BI), utilities companies can transform data into actionable insights. Industry 4.0 has created a heightened competitive environment for utilities - rapid innovation in smart metering and smart grids point to an urgent need for real-time business intelligence (RTBI).
