Advances in sensing and monitoring technology have the potential to completely revolutionize the way the power grid is managed and maintained. While the penetration level of these systems is relatively low today, adoption is expected to accelerate rapidly over the next several years. Click to tweet: According to a recent report from Navigant Research, worldwide revenue from asset management and condition monitoring (AMCM) systems for the power grid will grow from $2.1 billion annually in 2014 to $6.9 billion by 2023.
“The advent of the smart grid is causing utilities to reevaluate their approach to asset management,” says Richelle Elberg, senior research analyst with Navigant Research. “The prices for sensing and monitoring devices have fallen to the point where a credible and compelling business case for deployment can be made.”
The growing availability and affordability of these technologies comes at a critical time for many utilities, according to the report. Faced with aging infrastructure, knowledge drain as long-time employees reach retirement age, an increasingly two-way grid, and rising pressure for not only better efficiency and reliability, but also profitability, utilities are likely to find more effective AMCM solutions to be indispensable in the coming years.
The report, “Asset Management and Condition Monitoring”, analyzes the global market for AMCM solutions and describes where they are needed in the grid. It highlights significant market drivers and applications and outlines challenges to deployment. Global market forecasts for condition monitoring sensors in the grid and asset management software solutions, including asset-management-as-a-service and analytics, extend through 2023. Sensor forecasts are segmented by location in the grid, including transmission and distribution substations, transmission lines, distribution lines, and distribution transformers. The report also provides in-depth profiles of key vendors and several utility deployment case studies. An Executive Summary of the report is available for free download on the Navigant Research website.

Unsecured IoT devices were used to launch crippling DDOS attacks in October 2016, targeting services such as Twitter, Spotify, and GitHub. Subsequent testimony to Congress about potential attacks on office buildings, schools, and hospitals raised the possibility for the IoT to harm and even kill people. What should be done? Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service. In his session at 19th Cloud Exp...

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, sha...

Much of the value of DevOps comes from a (renewed) focus on measurement, sharing, and continuous feedback loops. In increasingly complex DevOps workflows and environments, and especially in larger, regulated, or more crystallized organizations, these core concepts become even more critical. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Andi Mann, Chief Technology Advocate at Splunk, showed how, by focusing on 'metrics that matter,' you can provide objective, transparent, and meaningful f...
