We made a strategic decision to move from traditional IT delivery to the cloud. AWS was selected as it provides the ability to provision infrastructure services without upfront high capital investment or high lead times – in addition to unbeatable services and cost models. We also standardized data integrations to remove swivel-chair manual integrations and legacy script-based file transfers. Talend was chosen to provide more batch-centric integration.
The solution is designed to collect data from multiple sources, including Internet-connected smart-meters, and loading it into a data warehouse structure for ease of management and analytics. It is flexible to add new data sources with ease, and will allow the client to analyze customer demands in real-time. Automated meter reading and smart metering will provide real-time insights to fix leaks faster and reduce customer bills.
Our solution has enabled the client to:
Meet business commitments with speed
Comply with regulations and eliminate financial penalties
See significant benefits in lead times to deliver change. Business teams can now execute reports in minutes rather than hours or days
Create disaster recovery and restore options
Enhance customer experiences
