Power and utility companies seek to optimize their use of physical assets and field resources to maximize uptime, reduce unplanned downtime, and optimize the skills of their crews. The network of objects embedded with sensors and other technologies—the IoT—has resulted in an explosion of data. Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides a comprehensive set of capabilities to help power and utility companies of all types and sizes to monitor their growing IoT capabilities at scale. AWS also helps systems to enrich IoT data before it is stored and to use machine learning to improve processes. As a result, companies minimize downtime, lower costs, and improve overall operational efficiency and health. Using AWS, companies can focus on the new business opportunities their smart equipment provides without compromising security or capacity.
