eMeter EnergyIP Data Sheet

  1. 1. DATA SHEET: eMeter EnergyIP eMeter EnergyIP The industry standard for Meter Data Management to meet the needs of today’s – and tomorrow’s utility. eMeter® EnergyIP® is the platform upon which all of eMeter’s Smart Energy solutions are built. EnergyIP has the most large-scale, mass-market deployments of Meter Data Management in the industry. “After an extensive evaluation, we found eMeter EnergyIP captures the complex relationships among assets, premises, customer accounts, users, applications, and services that must be managed in the right partner in any successful Smart meter network. With its automated business processes and eMeter with their workflows, eMeter EnergyIP provides real-time information and automation to EnergyIP solution. integrate enterprise systems and drive Smart Grid Management. eMeter EnergyIP eMeter demonstrated supports all aspects of Smart meter deployment and operation, serving as the their experience with “central nervous system” of a utility and turning data into actionable information that can be leveraged across the utility. large scale smart meter deployments eMeter EnergyIP offers several unique capabilities including: and their commitment • Industry Leading Scalability: eMeter EnergyIP is the only product designed to integration with from the ground up to handle the complexity of a multi-million point AMI our SAP customer deployment – rather than being adapted from a system built for smaller scale system.” deployments. Chris Barron, Chief Information Officer, CPS Energy • Enterprise Agility: eMeter EnergyIP’s delivers a flexible architecture to support any Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) and integrates with multiple utility enterprise systems to accommodate regulatory and business process changes in a low-cost, non-disruptive way. • Interoperability: Out of the box adapters for multiple Smart meter communication networks reduce overall cost and maintenance. • Automated, Event-driven Operations: Real-time processing data and operations data allows for the fastest possible decision making and improved efficiencies in billing cash flow, IT reconciliation, customer responsiveness, and logistics. Together, these solutions enable utilities to fully realize the benefits of Smart metering and AMI including improvements in operational efficiencies as well as consumer demand-side collaboration.© 2011 eMeter Corporation.

  2. 2. DATA SHEET: eMeter EnergyIP Core Functionality • Data Synchronization Engine: Synchronizes data with the AMI, Customer Information System (CIS), and other enterprise applications using FlexSync, an incremental, transactional-based approach to synchronizing data in real-time. • Data Repository: Uses a database partitioned Metered Usage Data Repository (MUDR) to maintain performance, while storing a plethora of Advanced Metering data. • Service Oriented Architecture: Integrates all of your legacy, current, and future systems, permitting consistent information viewing across all types of meters and meter-data collection systems with no loss of data and without updating existing systems. • Workflow Engine: Persistently maintains and handles requests that require workflow processing and tracks the progress of each operation. • Audit Tracking: Allows users to configure which business components and fields to audit, and to determine the scope of the audit. Audit features support system operations and Sarbanes-Oxley requirements. • Validation, Estimating & Editing (VEE): Performs real-time interval data validation and estimation according to configurable rules, allows graphical editing of metered data, and instantaneously verifies the accuracy of interval data and make corrections in real-time. • Analytics Foundation: A star schema Analytics Engine, separate from core transaction processing, provides near real-time access to information without compromising operational performance. • Reporting Frameworks: Presents customizable reports of AMI Health, outage analysis and event analysis, letting business and technical users view the same report portal to mine for problems.2
