“After a comprehensive evaluation of data warehouse systems, SP AusNet chose Teradata’s platform and Utilities Data Model, initially to support our Smart Network requirements, but ultimately building towards our vision for a true enterprise-wide information management platform,” said Ash Peck, general manager, ICT, SP AusNet. The products will be used to help build the SP AusNet “smart grid”.
“This implementation is part of significant changes we are embracing to remain at the forefront of the energy network business. Teradata offered a proven, scalable solution with excellent industry references; and Teradata saw things from our point of view.”
The new system will integrate interval and event data from over 600,000 smart meters, assets and network monitors to provide an efficient analytics platform capable of supporting both the current needs of SP AusNet, and providing a data warehouse platform for a wide range of other future purposes.
The Teradata Data Warehouse Appliance is a database hardware engine that greatly speeds up qurry times. SP AusNet is the largest energy infrastructure business in Victoria, owning and operating a state-wide electricity transmission network, along with an electricity and gas distribution network.
