IDC PeerScape: Practices to Enable Innovation and Reduce Disruption in Energy and Utilities with the Use of Robots
By: John Santagate
This IDC PeerScape describes three practices for improving the success of the deployment and use of robotics in the energy and utilities industries: identify the right scenarios to use robots, extend the boundaries of innovation, and focus on reducing disruption. This IDC PeerScape evaluates these practices and provides actual examples used by organizations in the energy and utilities industries to improve their operation.
"The benefits of robotic technology go well beyond task automation," says John Santagate, research director for Commercial Service Robotics at IDC. "In certain industries, the benefits are more about removing human workers from harm's way or leveraging remote-operated robotic technology to allow workers to do more with less disruption to the operation. This IDC PeerScape provides several practices for the successful use of robotics in energy and utilities based on best practices from actual organizations in these industries that have deployed and make use of robotics."
