Ontario’s electricity system is overseen by a semi-governmental entity called the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO). The IESO's responsibilities include ensuring that there is enough power to meet the province’s energy needs and to plan for future needs. As part of that mission, a Smart Meter Entity within the IESO administers the data generated by Ontario’s four million smart meters.

The IESO's Data Mart uses Kx technology to support high volumes of daily data access requests and anticipated growth with 24x7x365 availability, as well as current and future demands for advanced analytics in Ontario’s energy sector. For example, with kdb+, the IESO is able to aggregate an entire year of data for all meters in a few minutes, which supports analysis of load profiles, consumption behavior and different rate models.
