BANGALORE, INDIA: Siemens Smart Grid Division and Teradata announce a global strategic cooperation in the field of big data.

“Based on the broadest smart grid technology portfolio and our leading position in energy automation and meter data management, we know which data are key to an optimized operation of networks. Combined with Teradata’s expertise in analytic data solutions, we can provide our customers with relevant and valuable information allowing them to make faster and significantly more informed decisions,” said Jan Mrosik, CEO, Siemens’ Smart Grid Division.

Teradata’s Unified Data Architecture (UDA) is a framework for data management, processing, and analytics that enables utilities to exploit all their big data – as huge quantities of data are called today.

Data of this scale are generated when utilities operate infrastructure which the Siemens Smart Grid Division has upgraded from traditional networks to smart grids, with enhanced automation, new sensor technology, communication systems, and software applications, as per a release.

The companies are jointly developing data models – including providing further enhancements to Teradata’s Utilities Logical Data Model, a building block for utilities data analytics.

“Of course, just collecting and storing data doesn’t drive a cent of value to a utility’s bottom-line or help a utility’s customers understand their energy consumption,” said Hermann Wimmer, president, International, Teradata. “By integrating their data and running their analytics on the Teradata platform, utilities can apply intelligence to networks and use meter, asset and other sources of data to gain operational efficiency, improve service and increase customer satisfaction. That is where the value lies.”
