Study reveals US utilities falling behind in adoption of essential best practices | Smart Grid News | Information Architecture | Scoop.it

A new research study from Newton-Evans found several interesting trends, as you can read in the press release on page 2. What caught my eye was documentation of a disturbing failure by U.S. utilities to stay up to date with standards and best practices.

 

It's well known that U.S. utilities have been loath to embrace the 61850 substation standard that Europe has adopted with much success. The Newton-Evans study reveals other failures to adopt standards and best practices. For instance, two-thirds of European utilities have adopted key parts of a service-oriented architecture (SOA), an essential piece of the enterprise strategy strongly recommended by the Electric Power Research Institute. Yet only a paltry one-fifth of North American utilities are on the SOA path.

Big Content Needs More Metadata

Big Content Needs More Metadata | Information Architecture | Scoop.it

In recent posts I’ve introduced the notion of Big Content as shorthand for incorporating unstructured content into the Big Data world in a systematic and strategic way. Big Data changes the way we think about content and how we manage it. One of the most important areas requiring a fresh look is metadata. Big Content expands the definition of metadata beyond the traditional tombstone information normally associated with documents (title, author, creation date, archive date, etc.). While these elements are necessary and remain foundational to both effective content management and Big Data, more is required. Big Content metadata encompasses any additional illuminating information that can be extracted from or applied to the source content to facilitate its integration and analysis with other information from across the enterprise. This expanded definition results in a three-tiered metadata architecture for Big Content.
