Having access to real-time data is always important, but nowhere is data more vital than during a large incident. Whether utilities are dealing with a weather emergency, a critical equipment failure, disruptions to operations, or some other disaster, managers responding to large power incidents need data to be timely, accessible, actionable, and secure.

Incidents, though often unfortunate, represent incredible opportunities. With the right data strategy, a company can not only respond to and correct the situation, but also compile and analyze data that can play a critical role in the success of a future digital transformation strategy. This effort has evolved over time with the adoption of real-time series data technology and infrastructure.
