March 31, 2010
This suite of products, called Gridstream Intelligence, includes a collection of software applications allowing utility personnel to easily access metrics, inspect processes, and mine and present data from the Gridstream advanced metering system.
More than 50 electric utilities currently use Obvient Strategies’ products for analysis of metering and distribution system data. The digital dashboards with their associated key performance indicators offer easy access to analytics and reports. Additionally, the modules can present data in a format that is useful for technicians as well as executives. The product is also capable of rapidly extracting data from disparate systems, validating data accuracy, and loading the data into the chosen presentation format.
“Our relationship with Obvient has already resulted in new offers of advanced meter analytic tools for our customers. We have also started the process of deeper integration with Obvient, focusing on an intrusion detection application to augment our security offering. This effort represents another way Landis+Gyr is committed to providing problem solving applications for our smart grid customers,” said Michelle Mindala-Freeman, Vice President of Marketing and Product Management.
The addition of these products to the Gridstream solution set will allow Landis+Gyr customers to deploy a fully integrated suite of business intelligence modules that interface directly with Gridstream Advanced Metering software. Landis+Gyr will begin distribution and support for Gridstream Intelligence immediately.
“Obvient Strategies has specialized experience working with the utilities with asset management, outage management, and SCADA applications,” said Ray Kasten, President and CEO of Obvient Strategies. “By teaming with Landis+Gyr, we will have an opportunity to market and co-develop a variety of smart grid applications for Landis+Gyr’s broad customer base.”
