Energy Sector IT Executives Day

İstanbul, May 17, 2017


By 2020, non-utility companies and digital disrupters will seize 20% of the energy retail market, tripling the profitability gap between thrivers and survivors. IDC ‘Energy Day for CIO’ will provide penetrating views on long-term trends in the industry, along with thought leadership on new and unexpected themes that may be on the horizon. You will hear unique and astute perspectives on emerging trends that will help you plan for the future. Join us to find out how ICT can be leveraged to address key strategic and operational challenges facing providers of electricity in Turkey.


  • Asset digitization. By 2020, 25% of utilities will integrate asset performance management investments with sensor data and cognitive capabilities, boosting asset efficiency and reducing maintenance costs.
  • Distributed energy resource management systems (DERMS). By 2019, utilities will need to learn how to integrate externally originated asset, market and grids data and 30% will invest in distributed energy resource management systems.
  • Customer experience (CX). Failing to deliver superior customer experiences, only 1 in 5 utilities will raise customer satisfaction scores by 10% or reach positive net promoter score (NPS) by 2018.
  • Cybersecurity. By 2018, 60% of a utilities' strategic and operational security technology will be managed at the board level and orchestrated by government agencies.
  • Internet of Things (IoT). By 2018, misaligned regulatory frameworks and poorly considered commercial models will cause 50% of smart metering IoT initiatives to fail to deliver value beyond the pilot stage.
  • Cloud. By 2019, to support their digital transformation agenda, 25% of top 100 utilities will cut IT costs.
  • Big Data & Analytics It is critical that utilities mature homogenously across the five dimensions of Big Data and analytics — intent, data, technology, people, and process or they risk being only as strong as their weakest dimension.
  • Workforce digital augmentation. By 2019, 70% of the mobile utility workforce will not be equipped with augmented reality and wearables, missing out on optimizing operations, improving safety, and easing skills gap.
