Read this editorial to learn about the challenges and opportunities ahead for energy companies, and find out how utilities can use analytics to improve satisfaction by gaining insight into consumption and billing patterns—as well as the products and services that interest customers most.
Energy companies are being challenged on multiple fronts. Core expectations require the delivery of safe, reliable, affordable and sustainable energy. Business models are being challenged by alternatives such as renewables and consumers demanding more sophisticated interactions through social and mobile.
Energy companies need to:
Disruptively innovate business processes through analytics driven operational excellence to increase agility and responsiveness, reduce operational costs and improve asset reliability
Assume the role of energy integrator to optimally balance supply and demand points
Deliver a 360-degree customer-of-one experience to increase customer satisfaction and loyalty, reduce costs, and improve management of energy demand
It's demanding times for businesses. Facing risks as diverse as extreme weather and cyber-attacks, ?rms are focusing more intently on business continuity plans. At the same time, the digital revolution is changing lifestyles, disrupting business models and acting as a catalyst for change. Energy itself is undergoing a transformation, as generation moves towards renewables and decentralization, while technological advances present new opportunities. Energy now has the potential to deliver competitive advantage, to enhance sustainability and resilience, and to power innovative business models. But equally, the range of new options available is making the management of energy more complex. Read this thought leadership paper to find out how energy can drive your business strategy.

U.S. Department of Energy surveys show that minor adjustments in process management can incrementally improve efficiency in commercial and heavy industries. These include pulp & paper, chemical, petroleum refining, mining and food processing where as much as 60% of their total energy consumption goes to the production of steam.
The information-packed Steam Generation & Condensate Recovery Process Optimization kit from Magnetrol explains how effective instrumentation solutions can:
Energy costs have become an increasing contributor to pumping systems Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). In fact, energy cost represents 40% of the TCO of a typical pump. It is possible to reduce the electrical consumption by at least 30% utilizing Variable Speed Drives while decreasing maintenance costs associated with the mechanical driven system.
In this complimentary white paper, learn how to reduce the TCO of your pumping system with a limited investment in three key areas: energy efficiency management, asset management, and energy cost management.
IT departments constantly face demands to deploy, maintain and grow a broad array of services and applications, but this has lead to server sprawl and high energy costs. This brief discusses how VMware virtualization helps IT organizations increase utilization, lower energy costs, increase manageability and improve management of future growth.

As organizations pursue improvements in reliability and energy efficiency, power design in data centers gets substantial attention—particularly from facilities and engineering personnel. At the same time, however, many IT professionals tend to spend little time or energy on the specific products they use to deliver and distribute electrical power. In?rack power is often considered less strategically important than which servers or databases to deploy, and it is often one of the last decisions to be made in the overall design of the data center. But choosing the right in-rack power solutions can save organizations from potentially crippling downtime and deliver significant up-front and ongoing savings through improved IT efficiency and data center infrastructure management.
