Advanced weather technologies are changing utilities’ approach to operations and long-term capital investments. Beyond short-term forecasts, long-term weather data, models and analytic tools can provide utilities with reliability, safety and reduced operational expenses by leveraging actionable intelligence derived from emerging technologies.
In this session, we will share how the latest in artificial intelligence and machine learning in combination with modern modeling techniques, geospatial data and predictive analytics is enabling utilities to build greater resilience across their utility operations and field services organizations. John Villali from IDC will share his perspectives on the key benefits of these technologies while Robbie Berglund from IBM will share examples of clients who are benefiting from their use.
