NEOexpress is a data-visualisation tool to create, share and run reports from public data-sets hosted by IES.
Data includes the full history of the Australian NEM and gas data (STTM, DWGM, GSH, GasBB), Western Australian SWIS, the Philippines WESM data, Australian weather data provided by the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM), and others.
With NEOexpress, you only need to install the client software, login with your details, and then simply use the provided standard reports that we have created for you. We also provide support to create new reports on request subject to conditions that they can be included in the standard sets and is of general use to other users.
NEOexpress is also a great option for NEO users. With a NEOexpress account you can access your own data and reports plus ours! It also gives you access to our library of 1000’s of reports which as a current licensee you are free to copy to your own servers.
NEOexpress data service allow you to run reports from popular applications like Excel, PowerBI, Matlab, Python and R. It will run a report on request and return in any of the three popular data formats: CSV, JSON, XML.
What this means is that you can fully automate your analyses. Instead of having to manually run reports and copy and paste into Excel for example, you can just run an Excel VBA script to run any number of reports and load them. You don't need to have NEOexpress client running. Your preferred application just makes a web call with a URL that contains the name of the report, start period, report period and any instances (regions, plants etc.) so the URL are easy to manually create or modify in code for different start period for example.
Because it is over the web there is no need for any database drivers so there is nothing extra to install on your computer.
NEOexpress provides access to the full history of Australian NEM and Gas data (including STTM and DWGM) plus access to SWIS, BOM and Philippine WESM data.
NEOexpress has all the power of NEO so it includes built-in processing and analytics for all the complex data formats used in the energy industry such as bids and constraints. And NEO is also a powerful generic data analyser with its built-in Python scripting and cascading report styling.
Reports run faster because of the extensive work we have done in optimising our database configuration and query designs. We have even developed special batch processing of some data sets such as bids using what we call the "NEO Bids Accelerator" or NBA which greatly increases the speed of bids reports.
Reports update within seconds of data being published. We have a very high speed connection to AEMO for our data replication so updates are the fastest in the industry.
