DMFusion: a Proven SOA-oriented Platform with Open Architecture
DMFusion uses a layered architecture designed to integrate transmission and distribution grid components and to visualize the events and issues on the grid to manage the events and alerts. Its open, scalable, web-services-based architecture makes the platform easily adaptable to concrete processes, helping to empower existing solutions with advanced workflows, grid and events visualization, and decision support automation. Many workflows are already created within DMFusion platform:
- Load reduction and demand response workflow adds value for demand response vendors and utility companies that want to create an in-house demand response solution
DMFusion for load reduction act as energy management system Integration Bridge with curtailment commands as an output of the events processing. It displays the grid components and shows transformers and meters on GIS, together with their parameters collected from DMS/OMS and MDM. DMFusion correlates weather forecasts with metering data, predicts the load, and sends curtailment events directly to consumer devices.
- Equipment tracking workflow helps asset management product vendors to enrich their solutions or utility companies that want to build a custom, in-house asset management tool
DMFusion integrates equipment location and status information from Asset Management, Workforce Management, and legacy systems to create a single view of the equipment in the field. It establishes processes and workflows for equipment management, escalates issues and issues alerts if problems arise. Integrated with project management tools, it helps to establish single point of view on all the maintenance processes in one visual application.
- DMMessenger: a high-volume meter data analysis tool for customer engagement
Luxoft’s DMMessenger is the cloud-based distributed software platform that analyses terabytes of metering data and targets customers with curtailment messages. It was created specifically for Smart Grid solution vendors and is designed to empower their products with an active consumer enablement engine, meter data processing, cloud-based storage, social network integration, and messaging.
- Visual utility module for Smart Grids
DMFusion, an integration platform with high visualization capabilities, provides a way to look at the enterprise as a set of simple easy to read markers, helping to make better decisions. It leverages market-leading visualization vendors (SpaceTime Insight for visual analytics, Google Maps for simple dashboards, and OpenStreets for small and medium business) by combining their visualization capabilities with a prediction engine and sophisticated mathematics in prebuilt dashboards that helps to prevent faults and blackouts, make fact-based decisions. DMFusion’s visual utility helps to manage projects effectively, find losses and thefts at a glance on the grid.
