The description
Deployments of Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) and the value offered by smart meters have fueled a business transformation for utilities. In this new world where we read meters more frequently and more accurately, reconnect meters remotely, transmit voltage data to grid management systems, and present interval data to customers online, we have created a critical dependency on AMI data. Additionally, this critical data dependency continues to grow as new types of devices are added to the network.

In order to continue to meet business needs, it is important that high performance data collection for all networked endpoints is maintained and maximized to ensure consistent communications and uninterrupted data flow. This not only includes the reporting and visibility tools needed to ensure awareness, but also, and more importantly, the right strategy and execution steps to correct issues.

Adopting a sound philosophy and methodology is essential and should include:

  • Visibility and execution elements
  • Separate known root cause exceptions from symptom-based exceptions
  • Inject automation and mass action wherever possible
  • Ownership and priority attributes
  • Constant reassessment and revision
  • Measurement of ongoing business value

This webinar will help you strategize on how to use AMI data and analytics to have a meaningful impact on your organization.
