GridObserver®’s deeply customizable KPIs give you the insights that matter most to your business. Each KPI is made up of a wide variety of turnkey parameters that allow you to:
A KPI, or Key Performance Indicator, is a bespoke report that quickly gives you critical insights into the health of your network in real-time. Each KPI can easily be used to inform both high-level business decisions (e.g. "Are there any negative trends for specific areas of our network?") as well as explicit low-level troubleshooting (e.g. "What have the latencies been on this type of device at this site over the last 30 minutes?"). GridObserver® accomplishes this by providing a wide variety of turnkey parameters that cover all aspects of your network. These parameters ensure that each KPI accurately reflects the unique needs of your specific business at any level of operation. Such a high degree of customization allows any user to quickly discover and retrieve actionable information relevant to their needs.
GridObserver® KPIs are designed from the ground up to allow for the rapid assessment of both immediate and long-term network issues and requirements. Every KPI can be an interactive dashboard, so even the most obscure anomalies can be exposed before service interruptions occur. Critical network failures can be solved faster with both pre-created and on-the-fly real-time reports. Failing infrastructure can be identified and dealt with intelligently before problems occur. No matter your area of responsibility, GridObserver® KPIs provide a level of granularity relevant to your needs. By taking advantage of these enhanced insights, network downtime will decline as users will have a clearer picture of what is truly happening on your network.
GridObserver® has been explicitly designed for large-scale networks where any down time or efficiency loss is potentially catastrophic. Accordingly, GridObserver® KPIs are designed to measure a variety of scenarios. They can mirror SAIDI (System Average Interruption Duration Index) and SAIFI (System Average Interruption Frequency Index), which calculate the duration and frequency of power outages in a given geographical area. Similarly, GridObserver® KPIs can also mirror NSAIDI (Network System Average Interruption Duration Index) and NSAIFI (Network System Average Interruption Frequency Index) assist in appropriately evaluating Smart Grid operations. These examples and the systems below are just some of the areas deeply supported by GridObserver®.
