As a utility with 7.5m electric consumers, 1.5m retail gas customers and 50,200MWs of generating capacity, Duke Energy realised it needed to re-think how it approached its business in the digital age.
The utility realised it needed to address the changes that had occurred, both internally and externally, within the energy market. Customers are now connected and engaged, workers are now digitising tools and operations are becoming more intelligent.
Duke Energy identified that its IT and business departments are separated, and resources were constrained. In a presentation from Chris Heck, VP & Chief Information Officer at Duke Energy, he explained the roadmap for Duke Energy to adapt to these new changes, aiming to increase customer value and improve operations into four key steps:
- Achieve operational excellence
- Drive digital transformation
- Work as one with the business
- Transform IT
Using OSIsoft's solutions to enable its digital transformation, Duke Energy expects sustainable cost reductions in the ability to deliver tangible value faster, detect and address issues before failures and achieve greater value out of new business opportunities.
