SSP Presentations:

SSP will be presenting alongside our customers and your utility peers!

Come join us as we cover a range of topics from Integrations, Utility Network Tools, and ArcGIS Pipeline Referencing (APR). We always aim to cover topics that the industry demands!

Here are the individual presentation details:

Title:  What’s It Like to Use the Utility Network?

Date: Thursday, September 7th

Time: 830 AM -9:05 AM

Room: Waldorf

Presenters: Duane Holt (IREA) & John Coleman (SSP)

Abstract: The Utility Network is the on the horizon. Duane Holt from Intermountain Rural Electric Association has had a chance to use the beta of the Utility Network. He will share his experience and give his positives and negatives of this new technology. John Coleman from SSP Innovations, an Esri partner, will demonstrate the tools they have been building to answer the questions and concerns IREA and other utilities have about the Utility Network. This will include a few demonstrations covering each of the topics that IREA experienced during the Utility Network jumpstart.

Title:  Memphis Light, Gas & Water (MLGW) – UPDM & APR Implementation for Gas Transmission

Date: Thursday, September 7th

Time: 2:45 PM -3:20 PM

Room: Waldorf

Presenters: Andrew McColgan (MLGW) & Clarke Wiley (SSP)

Abstract: With the release of Esri’s ArcGIS Pipeline Referencing (APR) in early 2017, Memphis Light, Gas & Water (MLGW) identified the extensions as desirable tools to manage their gas transmission assets.  The key driver for MLGW was the ability to utilize software within the Esri stack for editing linear referenced pipelines, viewing and reporting. This presentation will focus on MLGW’s APR implementation and include elements around the hardware/software architecture, Utility Pipeline Data Model, data migration across multiple sources, implementation of the Esri software and creation of a viewing/reporting application within Web App Builder. 

Title:  Outside of the Box Integrations

Date: Friday, September 8th

Time: 10:15 AM -10:55 AM

Room: Williford C

Presenters: Jason Dietrich (Coserv) & Joaquin Madrid (SSP)

Abstract: In 2015, CoServ made the determination to migrate all asset data management into IBM Maximo. We opted to leverage ArcGIS for Server as our main integration point between Maximo and GIS. By hosting our utility infrastructure data in feature services, we allowed Maximo to view spatially enabled information for visualization within its own environment. Additionally, Maximo updates feature classes and their related tables based upon changes made in Maximo seamlessly through the services. By leveraging Global IDs and GUIDs as the direct linkage between Maximo assets and GIS features, CoServ is now able to ingest Maximo assets directly into the GIS environment.  This presented GIS end users access to asset related information in their native environment. The migration has been a highly successful implementation. It has alleviated the strain on GIS to manage and maintain asset related information while still providing a way for GIS to access it. This solution has provided a stable integration between the two environments with minimal customizations.  By thinking a bit out of the box, CoServ was able to create a unique integration that solved all of our problems.
