CenterPoint Energy: Business Value from Large, Complex Data

The San Jose DataWorks Summit (June 13-15) is just a few weeks away! We’re busy finalizing the lineup of an impressive array of speakers and business use cases. This year our Data Processing & Warehouse Track will feature Daniel Sumners, IT Architect at CenterPoint Energy.

CenterPoint Energy is a Fortune 500 electric and gas utility company operating in several US states. The company leverages Hortonworks to capture terabytes of utility data from over 2.3M smart meters. This data is vital to the company’s operations, customer service success, and regulatory compliance. It even enables the company to perform remote service calls, saving customers more than $25 million in fees and avoiding emission of over 13,000 tons of CO2.

Join Daniel on Wednesday, June 14th, at 11:30am as he presents:

Pouring the Foundation: Data Management in the Energy Industry

At CenterPoint Energy, both structured and unstructured data are continuing to grow at a rapid pace. This growth presents many opportunities to deliver business value and many challenges to control costs. To maximize the value of this data while controlling costs, CenterPoint Energy created a data lake using SAP HANA and Hadoop. During this presentation, CenterPoint will discuss their journey of moving smart meter data to Hadoop, how Hadoop is allowing CenterPoint to derive value from big data and their future use case road map. 

Understand CenterPoint Energy’s journey with Hortonworks as we lay the “data foundation” to become an intelligence-driven organization.
