How the ArcGIS Utility Network Management Extension Supports Electric Utilities
Change is sweeping the electric utility business, bringing many new challenges. Utilities need to maintain and deliver better information to all stakeholders including customers, regulators, and employees. To achieve this, information systems require higher performance, more elaborate detail, and greater scalability. With the growth in popularity of mobile devices, modern utility workers need these information system capabilities on a wide variety of devices to do their jobs effectively.
The US Department of Energy identified six capabilities essential for grid modernization: design and planning tools; devices and integrated systems; institutional support, security, and resilience; sensing and measurement; system operations; and power flow and control. The ArcGIS Utility Network Management extension supports these capabilities.
The ArcGIS Utility Network Management extension is part of a strategic investment in new capabilities. The extension accurately represents today's complex electric networks, helps contain future data modeling costs, and supports increased organizational efficiency.
