Exacter and ICC Form Strategic Alliance for Data Analytic Offerings to the Utility Industry

Columbus, OH - (NewMediaWire) - November 27, 2018 - Exacter, Inc., a leading provider of cutting edge predictive grid analytics to the electrical utility industry, and ICC, a leading innovator and designer of data analytics solutions, announce a business alliance to support the development of new products and services.  “Partnering with ICC brings a deep and talented team of engineers, designers and data scientists to the analytic and visualization side of our business,” states Exacter President Geoffrey Bibo.  “We are exploring next generation Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) products for our utility clients and believe ICC has the skills and experience in developing valuable data solutions.” 

ICC is excited about working with Exacter because of the enormous potential for improving electric utility data solutions.  “Exacter is uniquely positioned in helping utilities use data to become more predictive and less reactive,” states Kelly Gratz, President of ICC.  “Because we specialize in predictive algorithms, machine learning and modern data engineering, I believe our solutions can help make Exacter data more meaningful and insightful to their customers for achieving their desired goals.” 

The companies are just several miles apart with Exacter being on the north end of Columbus, Ohio and ICC in nearby Westerville.  Both companies feel that proximity will aid in the collaboration.  “Right now, we are beginning to share data deliverables and our vision for our next generation of products with ICC,” continued Exacter’s Bibo.  “Specifically, we are looking for integration support with GE Predix, Siemens Mindsphere, ABB Ability, and SAP Leonardo data platforms.  Plans are underway to tee up several projects in Q1 2019.”

Kelly Gratz sees tremendous opportunity to help Exacter transform the utilities industry through analytics.  “There is so much data being generated today by machines and devices that it is often difficult for organizations to hear the signal through the noise. Our experience helping clients to capture, integrate and deliver timely insights from data is a perfect match to support Exacter in the delivery of innovative and engaging solutions for their utility customers.” 

Located in Westerville, Ohio, ICC provides multidimensional data solutions for predictive analytics, customer experience, and what’s-next strategies for customers in retail, banking, insurance, healthcare, manufacturing and government sectors.
