Jade in the energy industry

Transforming energy

The energy industry is rapidly becoming an information industry. To be a strong competitor used to take engineering prowess and overbearing scale. Today, you can get ahead with better data management, easier ways to empower your customers, and an innovative mindset.

This is digital business transformation, and it’s what will determine long-term success in the energy industry.

We know energy, and we know digital business. We designed, built, and maintain New Zealand’s Electricity and Gas Registries, the systems at the heart of each industry. Our UX experts have led workshops with energy consumers to quickly turn insights and ideas into new app designs, and our data analysts have done market-leading work with new technology like smart meters.

Our thoughts on energy

You could easily argue that no sector is feeling the effects of fast-paced technological change more than energy. Generation, transmission, distribution, retail - at every level, the industry is guaranteed to look very different in a few years. Our energy book, Energetic thinking, compiles thoughts, stats, and future predictions from Jade’s leading energy thinkers in one place.

And, even if you’ve wrapped your head around today’s descriptive trends, what about tomorrow’s? Find out what’s coming in our energy infographic: The end of the line - Consumer trends are overturning the whole electricity market.

Digital business transformation takes a blend of skills

Data integration

Data is your most valuable asset but you miss out on insights, like a single view of the customer, when it’s stored in disparate systems. Our data transformation experts ask what you want to get out of your data, then make it possible. A single integration layer above your back-end systems needs only one connection from each underlying system, and one to each application. We unlock your data, make it easier to add new apps, and simplify the paths in and out of your systems.


Innovation services

See how software innovation works by collaborating with our experts. We can help turn your digital strategy into a roadmap, ready for step-by-step implementation. Each software project starts with user experience (UX) experts working alongside customers to discover what people really want, quickly iterate possible solutions, and arrive at a workable, professional design before you’ve invested too much in development or other costs.


Data analytics

Our analytics specialists find new value in your data. We work with you to understand which areas have the most potential value, then design and implement solutions that draw out new insights. Data can reveal unexpected patterns, behavior, and opportunities.


Software development

Our developers form fast, flexible teams. We work in small chunks and share our progress as we go. Customers, designers, and user experience experts keep us true to the goal of building software that people love. On the way to creating the finished product we deliver early concept design, prototyping, and alpha and beta testing.


Support and hosting

Rather than give your IT team any more to worry about, our enterprise-grade services keep your software and environment running, up-to-date, and secure. Options include round-the-clock monitoring, proactive upgrades and changes, hot stand-by disaster recovery, and full hosting services.
