HCL & Harris Geospatial Solutions Collaborates to Strengthen Advanced Analytics Solutions for the Utility Industry
HCL Technologies join hands with Harris Geospatical Solutions, a subsidiary of Harris Corporation to deliver an AI-driven, remote sensing data analytics system for its utilities customers. The technology will leverage UAS and other forms of remote sensing data to automate key utility operations.
Speaking about the partnership, Ajay Bahl, Executive Vice President, HCL Technologies, says, “The utilities industry is poised for a continual and rapid transformation, given the proliferation of technology. In this environment, digital innovation will become a driver of productivity and efficiency as well as a competitive differentiator. We are pleased to partner with Harris Corporation to deliver a system that will support this growth and innovation”.
The system will allow utilities to have a more active, controlled view of information through the use of remote sensing systems, which includes Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), manned aircraft, and space borne data sources. With the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology, the system will analyze data to automatically assess asset conditions and flow derived insights to critical asset operations such as work management, asset performance monitoring, and geographical information systems (GIS). Nowadays, utilities companies are increasing the use of technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) to improve operations and productivity. According to market research firm Million Insights, the global utility market is estimated to reach $299.1 billion by the year 2025.
