Siemens' smart grid division and analytics company Teradata Corp. are partnering to offer end-to-end integration of utility operational data with smart meter data for analysis on a single platform.

The companies are developing data models - including providing further enhancements to Teradata's Utilities Logical Data Model - that will help utilities achieve a high level of transparency on the status and activities in their networks. Siemens' smart grid customers will then be able to improve the reliability of their infrastructure and run their grids more efficiently.

"Of course, just collecting and storing data doesn't drive a cent of value to a utility's bottom line or help a utility's customers understand their energy consumption," says Teradat's Hermann Wimmer. "By integrating their data and running their analytics on the Teradata platform, utilities can apply intelligence to networks and use meter, asset and other sources of data to gain operational efficiency, improve service and increase customer satisfaction."
