The utility industries — Water, Oil and Gas, and Electricity — are massive. They touch all of us as consumers and run the gamut from industrial production, to safe and secure transmissions and storage, and to managing distributions and consumption of energy and water.
Most utility equipment was built before the Internet’s commercialization and lacks the ability to collect and normalize sensor data. Existing process control systems, like SCADA and PLCs, are typically not Internet enabled and cannot tap the power of cloud-based applications.
Smart Connect and IBM have partnered to bring utilities innovative new technology to answer this challenge. We do this by unlocking process control sensor data and linking it to state-of-the-art analytics, thus transforming operations with breakthrough intelligence for industry. Our Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution “smart connects” legacy control sensors to the power of advanced web applications like IBM Watson Analytics.
Quickly, Simply, Cost-effectively.
