The Democratization of Data
Growth of utility data has been exponential in recent years. Utilities are striving to maximize the value they realize from this data. This goal has become critical to achieving their objectives of providing cost-effective, safe, and reliable service in a world of snowballing complexity and growing customer expectations. This session will address the key elements of data democratization, with specific focus on providing access to the data and helping stakeholders understand what the data is telling them.
Dakota Electric Association will share its approach to democratization of data, including examples of decision-makers in the organization that benefit from the data. The speaker will review use cases in high bill incidents, voltage analysis, and transformer loading. Attendees will leave with an understanding of how Dakota Electric employees and members have benefitted from better access to, and greater understanding of, utility data.
