Pacific Gas and Electric Co. (PG&E) is using technology from Teradata to build its new Interval Data Analytics (IDA) platform, which will enable PG&E business users to analyze smart meter data using visualization and data mining tools.

To support the project, PG&E has acquired a Teradata 2700 Data Warehouse Appliance system, along with the Teradata Utility Logical Data Model, professional services and education/training.

"Because of our established SmartMeter network, we have a large volume of new data that gives us unprecedented insight into our grid," says Michael Glass , PG&E's director of information technology. "Leveraging Teradata with our other enterprise systems will enable the next level of analytics around that SmartMeter data set, and create additional insights and value for both customers and operations."
