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."
