London, United Kingdom, 19 January 2020 - CGI announces it has been working with Western Power Distribution (WPD), the distribution network operator (DNO) for the Midlands, South West and South Wales, to build a digital network model for the future using CGI’s Integrated Network Model solution (INM). ...

Respond. Rebound. Reinvent.


Throughout the pandemic crisis, our local experts in 400+ locations, combined with our global resources, can help you respond to unprecedented challenges, rebound at the right pace, and reinvent ways of working.

CGI OpenGrid360 offers utility network owners and operators specifically effective ways to:

▪  Continue reliability of the energy supply and network
▪  Accurately track and record operating costs, equipment and staff
▪  Avoid operational risks
▪  Implement new services faster, and manage the volume of data at the same time

 

Developing new digital capabilities for the energy transition requires a detailed, accurate and integrated view of your network—but the relevant operational data resides in many different systems and is hard to access. You also need visibility into the power generation options across all segments of the grid, including the endpoints. All of this demands an IT platform that can bring together data from internal and external sources to accelerate the development of new applications and services to meet your customer needs.

CGI OpenGrid360 is our answer to your need for data-driven transformation.

CGI OpenGrid360 builds on more than 30 years of industry experience and specific expertise from our work on UK smart grid innovation projects, for example, such as solving data challenges with Western Power Distribution (WPD). Founded on an advanced data management and integration model, our solution solves data quality challenges by allowing you to securely centralize your data and share it across IT, operational technology (OT) and business systems, without disrupting current systems.

Our innovative data strategy and enterprise data integration approach (the CGI OpenGrid Foundation) use a single reference model created from all other data in core systems. The value is in layering the data over the underlying network view.
