Big Data in the energy sector

On the 11th of June 2015, the iimt Masterclass with the Top Speaker Mr. Thomas Koller, CEO of the bernese consulting and software company enersis took place. Mr. Koller presented strategic approaches to manage these challenges, provided impulses with possible tactical measures and showed excerpts of concrete projects in the field of Big Data.

The energy industry is facing a fundamental and unprecedented upheaval. Besides massive regulatory and socio-political influences, market participants are facing with decentralised energy productions and the Smart Grid a technological paradigm shift. In addition, new, innovative and powerful competitors emerge into the traditional energy suppliers market.

A central aspect in current solution discussions seems to be the consequent establishment of energy suppliers as IT service providers: Big Data, digitalisation, Smart Grid, Internet of Things, fiber to the home and new IT customer services found their way from visions of the future into company’s operational projects. Often, however, the current measures are based on fragmented actions and lack of a necessary overview and a strategic realignment.
