  1. Smart Grid: Landis+Gyr offers advanced grid analytics in the cloud

    Landis+Gyr, a leader in energy management solutions, announced the addition of advanced grid analytics to its software as a service (SaaS) offerings, enabling utilities to access a variety of useful analytical tools from a secure, hosted environment. Landis+Gyr’s advanced analytics package provides visualization, planning and grid management capabilities using near real-time metering and grid sensor data. Utilities can now choose a number of deployment and support options to begin using analytics applications for revenue protection, asset management, optimization of renewable integration and improving reliability and power quality. “Landis+Gyr’s proven grid analytics software engine provides for a flexible delivery model that gives utilities options for addressing resource challenges or IT infrastructure needs,” said Gina Garner, Senior Director of Analytics and Strategy at Landis+Gyr. “Utilities can chose self-directed, hosted or consultative support. Our people provide the processes, tools and expertise from installation to data integration.” Advanced analytics help utilities correlate data collected from the smart grid network with other enterprise data to improve asset management and efficiency, streamline operations as well as facilitate a more rapid decision making process. Mapping and visualization tools enhance usability. “Hosting analytics through our cloud services allows the utility to offload the IT burden of infrastructure acquisition, management and MongoDB database support to our network operations center,” Garner said. “For many utilities, this allows faster delivery of the solution to engineering and operations personnel which improves return on investment.” Landis+Gyr has a long history of hosting metering data for utility customers and continues to expand its cloud service offering with smart grid software applications. In addition to analytics, Landis+Gyr offers hosting services for the Gridstream ® Meter Data Management System, and hosts data and network management software for 235 utility customers.
