The automated demand response solution from eSmart Systems uses predictive models to forecast potential capacity problems and automatically control the power load to prevent outages. The solution provides short-term and long term forecasts and offers a centralized hub to monitor and manage the entire grid. “Our Azure-based platform, that runs on top of all the client’s systems running in a power grid, helps connect data streams from multiple sources and provide grid managers with a single user interface for all of their monitoring tasks,” says Johansen. eSmart’s platform services are augmented with predictive analytics and mobile connectivity to incorporate trends like big data, mobility, cloud services, and social networking into the client’s infrastructures.
“The disruptive data platform we built for the energy industry has lever¬aged nearly all the Platform Services that Microsoft Azure of¬fers,” says Johansen. By basing their entire portfolio on the Az¬ure Platform as a Service, eSmart Systems avoids the time spent in upgrading and maintaining their servers and focuses more on creating business value to energy management.
