French utility company ERDF has selected Teradata to provide technology solutions as part of a redesign of its information system used to manage, process and analyze large sets of data generated by its smart grid.

According to Teradata, ERDF manages 95% of the power systems in France and will deploy the Teradata Data Warehouse Appliance with the new Teradata Database, backed with Professional Services for systems maintenance and integration. Teradata adds that 35 million smart power meters are projected for deployment in France by 2022, and meters are expected to send readings every 15 minutes to ERDF.

"By leveraging analytic and decision-making solutions from Teradata, ERDF expects to improve its data services to its customers and to get a clearer vision of its business through more relevant reporting and analysis,” comments Eric Joulié, president of Teradata France.
