Business Strategy: IDC Maturity Model Benchmark -- Big Data and Analytics in Utilities in North America

LONDON, March 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com just published a new market research report:

Business Strategy: IDC Maturity Model Benchmark -- Big Data and Analytics in Utilities in North America

This IDC Energy Insights report presents results of the first IDC BDA Maturity Model benchmark based on a study of 760 organizations including 59 utility companies at $500+ million in revenue.

"The utility industry is not as mature as some other industries in their use of analytics but has some terrific opportunities ahead. We are already seeing more utilities piloting or experimenting with big data and analytics. Given the mix of challenges facing the utility industry, we expect to see more pilots and proofs of concept going on over the next 12-18 months. So this is an opportune time for most utilities to be assessing their maturity with regard to big data and analytics. This report delivers some key insights and tools," says Robert Eastman, research manager, IDC Energy Insights, and lead analyst for the Worldwide Utility IT Strategies practice. "This BDA maturity framework developed by IDC will assist utility companies in assessing their current capabilities and to evaluate gaps in reaching higher levels of BDA maturity."

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

I knew Jeremy for almost 20 years, from the time he showed up one day at Cloud Expo’s headquarters in Bergen County, New Jersey, and went to work. The show wasn’t called Cloud Expo then, of course – it was still known as Java Edge, a pioneering event that grabbed developers, architects, and enterprise IT users alike for twice-yearly confabs. Jeremy didn’t have a job there, or even a job offer. He was s...
