Bit Stew Presents Webinar & Case Study featuring AusNet Services

In this webinar and case study, presenters Matt Nidd, Systems Integration Lead, AusNet Services, and Scott Harden, Vice-President, Strategic Alliances at Bit Stew Systems, will investigate real-world use cases in utilities that have tackled the challenge of applying real-time analytics to operational data on a massive scale in order to gain powerful new insights and improve automation. The presenters will also share best practices on key industry challenges that may be addressed through software defined operations and data-centric automation. You will learn how to:

  • Effectively manage rollout and optimize data integration for greater insights into your operations
  • Track benefit realization for real gain, including measuring demand response participation and effectiveness
  • Monetize other data going forward by integrating geospatial, weather and demand data by rapidly creating data-enabled applications

In particular, this webinar and case study will take a close look at AusNet Services and review their efforts to centralize data integration on a single, holistic platform that not only provides improved data visualization and empowers efficient demand response. The presenters will discuss how they are achieving a "single pane of glass" for AusNet, coalescing all infrastructure, network and operational data across all business areas including IT/OT. Find out how the utility is maximizing the data on-hand and building customized data-enabled applications on their own to solve new challenges as they present themselves, without needing to seek outside solutions.
