Putting a utility company’s data to work

An energy company wanted to put data at the heart of their future as a digital utility.

The company’s legacy data ecosystem was poorly organized and relied on local computing power, which held analytics teams back.

We worked together to launch a broad digital transformation covering everything from customer service to grid management.

A new, cloud-enabled data platform brought powerful analytics to every part of the company.

What we did:

  • Designed a new data platform accommodating multiple data domains and high-volume datasets
  • Developed foundational DevOps assets and capabilities, reducing costs and enabling rapid expansion into new domains
  • Redesigned IT operating model around Agile principles to enable rapid end-to-end delivery of IT products
