Darin Briskman and Josh Bartliff with Imply

Industrial Talk is onsite at DistribuTECH and talking to Darin Briskman, Director of Technology and Josh Bartliff, Strategic Account Executive with Imply about “Highspeed, real time, data analytics supporting the demands of the utility market”.  Here are some of the key takeaways from our conversation:

The speakers discussed the significance of real-time data analytics in the utility industry, emphasizing its role in making timely decisions, avoiding cascading failures, and optimizing operations. They highlighted the need for utilities to modernize their systems to accommodate real-time decision-making, leveraging technologies such as AI and ML to analyze vast amounts of data from sensors and make decisions in sub-second intervals. The speakers also discussed the challenges of managing and analyzing large volumes of data in real-time, including the need for a database that can handle both streaming data from latest devices and traditional data from mainframes, and mentioned Apache druid as a potential solution.
