Interoperability between providers and customers creates most value: “prosumers”

The Grid

Traditional Energy System


THE CPS ENERGY STORY Adapt and Innovate

Diversity of Generation

Natural gas bridge fuel

Incremental integration of renewables

Grid of the Future

Interoperability via Open Architecture Data Analytics

Public Private Partnerships


Economic Development / Education

Human Capital Investment

Training & development “De-bureaucratizing”


The Digital Wave and the Internet

of Things (IoT)


The Digital Wave and the Internet of things (IoT)

…….and what is IoT?

IoT is basically connecting any device with an on and off switch to the internet. This includes:

Cell phones

Coffee makers

Washing machines

Wearable devices


Purchasing systems



And everything else……


IoT Key Facts

4.9 billion connected things will be in use in 2015 (up 30% from 2014)

By 2020, the amount of Internet-connected things will reach 50 billion, with $19 trillion in profits and cost savings coming from IoT over the next decade, according to Cisco Systems

Gartner predicts 250 million connected vehicles with automated driving capabilities by 2020

Only 0.06% of things that could be connected to the Internet currently are, which means 10 billion things out of the 1.5 trillion that exist

globally are currently connected.

Connected homes will be a huge part of the Internet of Things. By

2019, companies will ship 1.9 billion connected home devices, bringing in about $490 billion in revenue.

GE estimates that convergence of machines, data, and analytics will become a $200 billion global industry over the next three years.

By equipping street lights with sensors and connecting them to the network, cities can dim lights to save energy, only bringing them to full capacity when the sensors detect motion. This can reduce energy costs by 70% to 80%.

The Digital Wave and the Internet of things (IoT)

Everyone is going “digital,” but what does that mean?




Big Data Cloud

Digital is made up of four aspects:


Digital and the IoT

How does this impact you?

The new rule for the future is going to be, “anything that can be connected, will be connected.”

Why should we change?

 Opens the door to a lot of opportunities

 Remain competitive

 Technology “consumerization” is driving transformation in the utility business model

Business Opportunities and Strategic Issues”, August 2004


Digital and the IoT impact on Supply Chain

How does Digital and IoT impact supply chain organizations?

• Greatly broadens the number of locations along every product’s value chain that will now be monitored.

• Dramatically improve marketers’ ability to sell desired products to specific customers exactly when they need or want them.

• Speed up the product cycle – all of which will dramatically increase the pressure on supply chains to perform faster, more efficiently and at lower cost.

• Changing how supply chain teams need to be organized and managed

• Potentially changes a companies control points for managing the value chain

• Changes the role and value of data


Digital and the IoT impact on Supply Chain

How are Supply Chain organizations handling digital today in general?

• Many are working to introduce Digital capabilities into their operations with small successes in general

• Welding digital capabilities onto traditional supply chain structures that combine paper-based processes and newer optimized processes

• Re-fitting, re-wiring and re-adapting instead of re-inventing

• Overall, results yield unrealized performance because of inconsistent data and a myriad of inefficiencies


Digital and the IoT impact on Supply Chain

Where does Supply Chain go from here?



Big Data Cloud Digital

The Emergence of the Digital Supply Network

• Social Media can help companies tap outside the walls of the organization

• Mobile Communications can provide real time support for the field

• Analytics can help companies analyze behaviors and improve efficiency

• Cloud can provide remote access by experts to help organizations


Digital and the IoT impact on Supply Chain

How does Supply Chain benefit from the Digital Supply Network?

• Has the power to drive the convergence of supply chain elements

• Help companies capture larges savings both financial and efficiency

• Fosters network processes optimizing the complete enterprise to include:

 Designers  Distributors

 Manufacturers  Logistics

 Suppliers  Customers


Digital and the IoT impact on Supply Chain


Enhanced responsiveness

Proactive prevention

Last mile postponement


Maximum efficiency

Organizational flexibility

Personalized experiences


Actionable insights

Automated execution

Enhanced and accelerated innovation


Real time visibility

Seamless collaboration

Highly evolved operating models

What are the key attributes of the Digital Supply Network?

• Envision the Power of the Network. At the outset, it is essential to define the digital supply network vision for the organization.

• Forget Functional Excellence. Once the

vision is defined, the next step is to conduct a value chain analysis to identify the value-

creating activities that will to be at the core of the digital supply network.

• Map Your Digital Journey. With the vision defined and the core activities revealed, a digital blueprint for the organization can be created
