Efficiency through digital innovation
The newly formed partnership of HCL Technologies and Harris Geospatial Solutions Inc is providing an AI-driven, remote sensing data analytics system for its utilities customers.
The system allows utilities to have a more active, controlled view of information through the use of remote sensing systems, which includes Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), manned aircraft, and space-borne data sources.
Using a form of artificial-intelligence (AI) technology, the system analyzes data to automatically assess asset conditions and flow derived insights to critical asset operations such as work management, asset performance monitoring, and geographical information systems (GIS).
“The utilities industry is poised for a continual and rapid transformation, given the proliferation of technology,” said Ajay Bahl, Executive Vice President, HCL Technologies, said on 6 Feb 2019.
“In this environment, digital innovation will become a driver of productivity and efficiency as well as a competitive differentiator. We are pleased to partner with Harris Corporation to deliver a system that will support this growth and innovation,” said Bahl.
“Harris Corporation is committed to meeting the emerging needs of the utility industry as market demand increases,” said Erik Arvesen, Vice President & General Manager of Geospatial Solutions at Harris Corporation.
“Working in partnership with HCL provides a powerful combination of analytics technology leadership from Harris with HCL’s proven record of delivering digital technology transformation to the industry.”
This launch comes as utilities companies are increasing the use of technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) to improve operations and productivity.
At the same time, the demand for services will increase, making the rapid deployment of services and network analysis critical.
According to market research firm Million Insights, the global digital utility market is estimated to reach US$299.1 billion by the year 2025.
