Insights Solution ongoing development and planning
The Kinnect Insights Solution is publishing production BMRS data and will remain in BETA until the data reports have been successfully migrated from the ageing BMRS platform.
The decommissioning of the legacy BMRS and data publishing endpoints such as Data Push Service and TIBCO is published here.
The following document provides a complete list of all BMRS datasets, where they are moving to or have moved to; including those datasets that will not be migrated. You will be able to cross reference the old service names with the new names, and where you can locate them.
We publish additional variations of the datasets as opinionated API endpoints on the developer Portal.
The Insights Solution provides three endpoints for accessing data: a website for interactive users, RESTful APIs and a real-time data subscription service referred to as Insights Solution Realtime Information Service (IRIS).
We have migrated many of the existing content on to the new platform, and are on track to make the Insights Solution fully operational by February 2024.
The following developments have been delivered.
Webpages that are currently available on the Insights Solution include:
- Actual aggregated generation per type
- Actual or estimated wind and solar power generation
- Credit default notices

Retiring of legacy systems – TIBCO software and High Grade line
A recommendation to decommission the TIBCO and High Grade line which supplies users with near real time updates on wholesale market data from our Balancing Mechanism Reporting Service (BMRS) has been made. A BSC Change modification proposal was presented to the Balancing and Settlement Code (BSC) Panel seeking to retire this service. The Insights Solution Realtime Information Service (IRIS) is an alternative system.

We will continue to introduce new features and functionality to the Insights Solution during 2024 and beyond.
