Unleash your data’s business potential
Utilities across the US and Canada face a common set of challenges in harnessing the power of data and machine learning to optimize their operations. We created our suite of artificial intelligence (AI)–powered solutions, E Source OneInform and E Source GridInform, to help our utility clients jump the technology curve and deliver speed to value through data science. We know:
- It’s hard to attract and retain top data science talent that possess the diversity of skill sets needed.
- Data is costly and difficult to organize, manage, and use. Data that’s sufficient for one purpose often proves difficult and costly to repurpose.
- It’s challenging to gain organizational alignment to drive business value through big, and often unproven, ideas.
Introducing E Source OneInform, our industry-leading suite of AI-powered customer-centric solutions for the next generation of programs
By providing a deep understanding of each individual customer, OneInform revolutionizes the way utilities manage and develop the next generation of customer programs. It combines hundreds of unique data points, starting at the smart meter level, and uses proprietary algorithms to help you identify the right programs for the right customers, simulate program and grid impacts, craft the appropriate messaging to cause individuals to engage, and implement automation to continuously improve your efforts.
OneInform can help you optimize your program portfolio, especially related to distributed energy resources, billing and payment programs, and electric vehicles.
Data science as a service
Our data-science-as-a-service (DSaaS) approach is a scalable solution to support your data and AI efforts. It integrates seamlessly with your existing teams, no matter where you are on your data science journey.
Our industry veterans can help your team strategically organize and manage data. We enrich your current data with third-party and proprietary E Source data sets.
No data science solution is a one-size-fits-all offering. Our team of data scientists with strong utility domain expertise can help augment your team’s capabilities in tailoring and customizing your data science and AI tools to their greatest potential.
We’ve spent years building AI algorithms and models to solve specific utility problems. Our portfolio of more than 40 solutions develop digital replicas of your customers and grid, enabling our algorithms to learn and configure AI models specifically for your utility. Because of this context, our solutions are extremely powerful data-driven decision-support systems, whether you need to reduce transmission and distribution costs while improving reliability, optimize the performance and reach of your customer programs, or increase customer satisfaction and participation.
Agile data science
Gone are the days of multiyear efforts that yield little or no progress. Our team has embraced the Agile approach of delivering software that responds quickly to the dynamically changing business environment.
Accelerate the value of your data
Our agile data science approach helps utilities identify data and machine learning models that will quickly add value to their businesses. Our four-step, collaborative learning methodology helps clients identify the right opportunities for prediction, put their data to work, and get meaningful results fast—all in an IT-light solution that’s focused on delivering tangible outcomes with measurable returns.
The four steps of agile data science include applying this methodology to the concept:
Determine which high-value opportunities to tackle with predictive data science.
Dig into the data to make sure the data assets and access are clearly mapped out. Then work with subject-matter experts and internal stakeholders to examine the nuances of the opportunity and calculate how success will be measured.
Develop the solution for a logical subset of your business using your data and our AI models. Ensure the results are actionable with validated learnings and a clear return on investment.
Deploy the solution at enterprise scale, address priority gaps, automate data feeds, and partner on the plan to fully implement the solution for your business.
