The demand for clean and renewable energy, rising interest in distributed generation, and the move to smart grids create new business models that require a modern data infrastructure incorporating internet of things (IoT). Using the power of real-time insight, from rigs to smart meters, is a key way to increase operational productivity, reduce costs, comply with regulations, and gain a timely understanding of customers’ energy use. Striim makes it easy to adopt a modern, streaming data architecture that enables automated data integration in real-time and smart decisions across the whole value chain; delivering safe and cost-effective operations, and better customer experience.
Using Striim, you adopt a smart, modern data architecture that integrates, analyzes, and visualizes high-volume, high-velocity operational data as soon as it is generated. It captures real-time change data non-intrusively from enterprise databases, combines with real-time sensor and machine data, including WITSml files, for a comprehensive view of operations. It optimizes data storage by filtering, aggregating, transforming, enriching, and analyzing sensor data at the edge.
It analyzes data-in-motion to respond to time-sensitive operational events such as changes in weather conditions. Striim’s advanced features such as predictive analytics and ability to embed machine learning algorithms allow you to make accurate and timely decisions that maximize operational productivity while reducing costs.
The leading utility company serving over 1 million customers in the U.S. decided to improve its understanding of the distribution system’s health and its customers’ gas and electric services usage. It uses the Striim platform to integrate, analyze, and visualize real-time data from energy distribution systems, SCADA systems, and smart meters.
Via real-time dashboards the utility company tracks key metrics on the network health and energy use and receives alerts on any deviation from normal thresholds immediately. It can instantaneously identify faults in distribution networks and isolate the sections of the network to prevent outages for a larger group of customers. The company can detect and alert on potential issues on the distribution system proactively, before they even occur. The utility company can provide its customers with up-to-date views into their usage patterns via its website.
