GE has launched its Grid IQ Insight Innovative Utility Program (IUP) to focus on combining ideas and sharing expertise in big data, visualization and advanced analytics specific to distribution, transmission, customer service and consumer-related operations.

GE says the IUP will bring industry experts together to share best practices and use cases, relevant governance, data challenges and regulatory impacts to show how the analysis of data can bring significant value to utilities.

The Grid IQ Insight software was introduced earlier this year as one of GE's Industrial Internet technologies, focusing on grid operational analytics. The company says the software is designed to bring information value from the volumes of data acquired from various operational systems.

"We are living in an ever-growing world of big data, where the creation of data vastly outpaces our ability to intelligently utilize it," says Michael Carlson, general manager of software solutions for GE's Digital Energy business. "The goal of this reliable, cost-effective utility program is to take mass amounts of raw data and transform it into informative, useable insight. The IUP utilizes the voice of the customer, along with our Grid IQ Insight software, to translate big data challenges into solutions."
