Smart Grid as a Service: Managed Services for Home Energy Management, AMI, DA and SA Communications, Substation Asset Monitoring, Demand Response, and IT Systems and Analytics

LONDON, Aug. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com has added a new market research report:

Smart Grid as a Service: Managed Services for Home Energy Management, AMI, DA and SA Communications, Substation Asset Monitoring, Demand Response, and IT Systems and Analytics

https://www.reportbuyer.com/product/2126651/Smart-Grid-as-a-Service-Managed-Services-for-Home-Energy-Management-AMI-DA-and-SA-Communications-Substation-Asset-Monitoring-Demand-Response- and-IT-Systems-and-Analytics.html

Globally, the century-old electric utility industry is experiencing accelerated change and new challenges. Smart grid technology has emerged to help utilities deal with many of these challenges, but for all but the largest utilities, access to adequate financial and human resources may limit their ability to invest in smart grid solutions at the desired level. As a result, power industry hardware and software vendors are increasingly offering managed services solutions, or what may be referred to as smart grid as a service (SGaaS).

The tremendous growth in cloud-based services has increased the awareness of and comfort levels with SGaaS. Offerings are now available for a host of smart grid applications in several categories, including home energy management (HEM), advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), distribution and substation automation (DA and SA) communications, asset management and condition monitoring (AMCM), demand response (DR), and software solutions and analytics. While utilities have historically shied away from outsourcing operations, attitudes are shifting. The complexity of smart grid deployments and systems integration and a shortage of qualified internal human resources are just a few of the drivers behind a growing market opportunity for SGaaS. Navigant Research forecasts that the global SGaaS market will grow from just under $1.7 billion in 2014 to more than $11.1 billion in 2023.

This Navigant Research report analyzes the global market for SGaaS offerings and describes how and where they are being used by utilities. The study discusses significant market drivers and applications and outlines challenges to market acceptance. Global market forecasts for managed services for applications in six smart grid categories – HEM, AMI, DA and SA communications, substation asset monitoring, DR, and IT and analytics – are presented through 2023. For the United States, forecasts are segmented by investor-owned utility (IOU), municipal utility, and cooperative utility. The report also provides in-depth profiles of key vendors and examines several utility deployment case studies.

Key Questions Addressed:

How are smart grid as a service (SGaaS) offerings structured?
What are the various levels of managed services available?
Which smart grid applications best lend themselves to managed services?
How do the different types of utilities benefit from SGaaS?
What are the challenges to market adoption of SGaaS?
Which utility software applications are available in a software as a service (SaaS) model?
How large will the market for SGaaS grow over the next decade?

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
