Recently Snohomish County PUD, Boreas Group, EPRI, and other industry representatives took part in a thought leadership webinar which discussed the various initiatives transforming how leading utilities rely on advanced enterprise and operations-ready network models. More specifically, the webinar focused on how this reliance and usage goes beyond traditional GIS’s of the past.
During this webinar, the panel of experts talked about:
- Sector-wide changes impacting the utilities market
- The importance of having advanced enterprise GIS solutions that create true network models to serve various parts of the enterprise
- Real-world examples of operational excellence associated with these platforms
The dialog between these organizations started after the release of a T&D World white paper titled, “Rethinking Geographic Information Systems: Foundational Changes Making for Greater Operations-Ready Network Models”. Take a minute and watch this great webinar.
Utilities are beginning to look at network model management to maintain the distribution network as well as a foundation for enterprise wide integration.
