July 24, 2008

Xcel Energy, an US-based electricity and natural gas company, has partnered with Teradata, a provider of enterprise data warehousing solutions, to further develop its advanced analytics and user self-service capabilities.

The initial scope of effort will combine the utility’s data on meters, billing and collections, and enable detailed segmentation and powerful analytics.

In addition, Xcel Energy will employ a Teradata Logical Data Model being developed to represent enterprise data, data relationships, topic areas and business rules.

Michael Carlson, chief information officer of Xcel Energy, said: “We believe there will be a tremendous opportunity to leverage that information towards automating the management of the grid. This collaboration is expected to provide the scalability and performance we need for making smarter business decisions.”
