Since more than 15 years, our customer develops energy management and energy controlling systems for well-known branch networks of large restaurants and discount store chains. The systems are embedded into innovative and compact solutions for controlling the branches. Our customer was looking for a solution which allows for the flexible and dynamic query and analysis of measurement streaming data of standardized switchboards which deliver data in 10 minute intervals. Furthermore, the process workflows should be optimized.
The customer uses the following benefits as competitive advantages:
The customer was using different data sources and formats. We revisioned the database structure and defined a unified XML format for all interfaces. In this use case, Information Workbench allows for an easy data exchange, intelligent analysis of measuring data streams and for flexible and dynamic dashboards. Branch as well as regional managers monitor their measuring data streams, create an overview on individual stores as well as comparisons over an unlimited period of time on their own. The administrator receives notifications in critical situation such as the minimum temperature is lower than the defined threshold. Immediate reactions to changes are possible.
In addition, we created a benchmark for the analysis of differential currents across all stores together with our customer. This creates transparency over the power consumption and divergence from standards and allows for the formulation of comparisons with similar stores.
