Utilities

Enabling operational and service excellence for utilities

Utilities are facing unprecedented change, in terms of pace, scale, regulation and rising customer expectations. The need to continue to satisfy energy demand reliably and affordably, but also sustainably, is driving a revolution in the way the energy system operates.

The requirement for you to optimise the investment in, and operation of assets has never been greater and, in addition to this, the importance of new capabilities is growing.  The progressive adoption of low carbon technologies, both on the supply side and beyond the meter through to deployment of intelligent devices within networks is driving the need for new business models around leveraging data, cyber security and connected devices are needed.
