FirstEnergy Corp. Research Reports
On August 4, 2014, FirstEnergy Corp. (FirstEnergy) reported that its Pennsylvania utilities have filed comprehensive distribution rate plans with Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PPUC) to ensure continued reliability enhancements for customers. Across FirstEnergy's Pennsylvania operating companies -- Pennsylvania Power Company (Penn Power), West Penn Power Company (West Penn Power), Metropolitan Edison Company (Met-Ed) and Pennsylvania Electric Company (Penelec) - the proposed rate plan would result in an average bill increase of $16.59 per month for residential customers. According to the Company, the new prices, if approved, would still on average be lower than the average rates charged presently by other Pennsylvania utilities. "The plans are designed to bring our revenues in line with our costs, while minimizing the impact to our customers," said Dave Karafa, President of Pennsylvania Operations for FirstEnergy. The utilities have requested that the proposed rates would take effect October 3, 2014. The full research reports on FirstEnergy are available to download free of charge at:

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
