Smart technologies for a smart future
Utility companies face growing technology challenges. They must reduce exposure to penalties associated with NERC CIP noncompliance, and they must modernize transmission and distribution networks to support IP-enabled services. Add to this the need to guard against cyber threats through network segmentation and data protection.
Meanwhile, big data presents an opportunity to improve demand forecasts, generation optimization and overall operations. But most utility companies aren’t gearing up fast enough.
