Adopting Esri's Utility Network offers a unique opportunity to re-examine the role of GIS in your company. What should the GIS do for my department, and for the Enterprise as a whole? What data should I keep in GIS, and which attributes should be delegated to other systems? How must GIS interact with those systems? What are the strengths and weaknesses of my current GIS, and how can I position GIS at the heart of my Utility?
Transitioning to the Utility Network allows you to re-invent your GIS, yourself, and your department to best serve your organization.
