Utilities Business Trends 2022: Flexibility and Orchestration Needs Are Creating New Markets

GE Digital helps transmission companies with AEMS, WAMS and AMMS software

Gartner Report

As renewable energy sources replace fossil-based fuels, utilities are under pressure to address short-term power imbalances that could bring instability to the grid.  Forward-thinking operators have a chance to capitalize on emerging flexibility markets. In doing so, they can help to stabilize the grid and accelerate their own energy transition.

Asset Performance Management

Improvement in industrial operations is centered at the asset level. Learn what analysts say about GE Digital's approach to asset performance management.

Analyst Research

[GE Digital also] made significant improvements to its Asset Performance Management platform (including cloud-enabled Predix APM and the on-premise version, APM Classic). LNS has long considered GE Digital the granddaddy of APM, well-aligned with our definition of APM 4.0 and vision for what we call ‘closing the reliability loop,’ whereby one moves from prescriptive to prognostic capabilities, and eventually to a learning asset management system. GE Digital is not sitting on its laurels and we would encourage existing and potential users to get an update on these developments.GE Digital also “made significant improvements to its Asset Performance Management platform (including cloud-enabled Predix APM and the on-premise version, APM Classic).

GE Digital is not sitting on its laurels and we would encourage existing and potential users to get an update on these developments.

When it comes to APM technology, several vendors offer functionality across multiple usage scenarios, but the reality is that more doesn’t always mean better. In fact, only two such scenarios are essential to APM: asset health monitoring and asset failure prediction. It’s here that GE Digital really rises above the rest, based on our detailed benchmark analysis they were the only APM vendor to receive a perfect score in both areas. But these aren’t the only areas in which GE Digital sets the bar high. They also received market-leading scores for integration with industrial systems, inspection planning and solution architecture (assessed in terms of the range of deployment options, the consistency of the code base and the quality of integrated workflow).

Many vendors claim they have APM but actually have only asset analytics with no direct diagnostics capabilities. Integration with critical plant management solutions, like EAM, enables true APM companies to bring together data from all equipment and OEMs across the plant and the fleet to eliminate data silos and facilitate reliability improvements, optimize O&M spend and quantify risk reduction.

Visual Intelligence for Utilities

Analyst Research

Billions of dollars are spent each year maintaining network assets and ensuring they are cleared of encroaching vegetation. For most utilities, site inspections and vegetation management are performed as they were decades ago. However, artificial vision, particularly visual AI-based analytics, as offered by GE Digital’s Visual Intelligence solution, has the potential to transform the vegetation management paradigm. Sophisticated analysis of varied and complex datasets in a visual manner enables more predictive maintenance resulting in optimized resource allocation, reduced O&M spend alongside increased safety and network reliability.
