Often, the hardest part of every journey is taking the first step.  If you haven’t already started preparing for your utility network implementation, we recommend you read the Journey to the Utility Network: First Steps blog so you can learn the five key steps common to every successful implementation. Once you’ve finished that you can check out the full Journey to the Utility Network blog series to relieve some of the apprehension experienced when getting started. If you’re looking for some more indepth content, you should check out this learn series for a compilation of all the most interesting utility network tutorials and blogs or this community post that includes a list of important videos and articles for utility network customers. 

Safe travels, we look forward to seeing you there!
