Pre-Conference Seminar

UNAP Ready Set Deploy

Get ready for the next generation of utility GIS. The Utility Network will enable you to model your utility network in greater detail than ever before and put GIS information in the hands of more people, devices, and applications. Given the Utility Network is utility GIS-redesigned from the ground up, your implementation provides real opportunities to improve how your business uses GIS while migrating from current to future state.

Join us for this interactive workshop where SSP experts will help you get to know the new platform, understand the opportunities it can bring, and start planning for a successful Utility Network deployment.

Booth Presentations

Session Topic MIMS Overview & Demonstration with SSP Lifecycle
Location SSP Booth 117
Time Tuesday, November 6, 2018, at 3:00 PM and Wednesday, November 7, 2018, at 1:00 PM
Utilities have aging infrastructure in vast territories that require inspections, maintenance, capital construction and more.
MIMS, which stands for Mobile Information Management System, streamlines this fieldwork and makes it easy with simple forms integrated with GIS and other important business systems like Lifecycle.
Lifecycle manages both rotating assets and work to enable the digital transformation for utilities ready for a simple and elegant work management system.
Use MIMS and Lifecycle to improve your Inspection Programs, Maintenance Programs, and Capital Construction Programs.

Session Topic CAD and GIS integrations in the Digital Utility
Location SSP Booth 117
Time Tuesday, November 6, 2018, at 4:00 PM

You have heard Jack describing Esri-Autodesk agreement as a “turning point” in achieving cooperation between the worlds of engineering design (CAD) and geographic sciences (GIS).  SSP Innovations has teamed with SBS (developer of innovative AutoCAD based Automated Utility Design and Utility DataHub™ products) to work together on streamlining the integration of their CAD and Esri  platforms.  The integration allows utilities to take utilize, not just display 3D information in design.  Please stop by SSP Booth 117 to learn how Utilities can create fully integrated, end-to-end digital workflows between design, construction and operations. SSP and SBS team will demonstrate typical Utility workflows and best practices in the integration of enterprise systems leveraging best-of-breed tools to complete construction design and mapping work without actually losing any critical data or functionality in a bi-directional.

Session Topic Future of Gas GIS
Location SSP Booth 117
Time Tuesday, November 6, 2018, at 5:00 PM

Are you, as a gas utility, wondering why you should make the jump to the utility network? With a major focus on our industry through recent incidents and upcoming regulatory demands, now is the time to plan your move. Come to SSP’s Booth 117 to hear the benefits, how your technology platform will need to change, how your data needs to be prepped/migrated and organizational strategies for the step forward. SSP’s Director of Pipeline, Clarke Wiley, will walk through the different implementation options and how we can support operational changes & integrity decisions through the new gas Utility Network.

Session Topic SSP Sync – How to Reduce the Risk in You Move to the Utility Network
Location SSP Booth 117
Time Wednesday, November 7, 2018, at 10:00 AM
The Utility Network Management Extension incorporates capability based on utility specific requirements collected over almost 2 decades. Many utilities have invested a tremendous amount of effort and expense adding new integrations, custom tools, and user groups to their core GIS over time. How can you continue to leverage that investment, while moving to the new platform? How can you choose when it makes sense to migrate certain capability to the UN while leaving other integrations or user groups in place? SSP Sync has been designed to not only migrate your data but allow you to keep your existing system and integrations in place while you perform a risk-free transition at your own pace. Come and learn more!

Session Topic Keeping Pace with the Evolution of Energy
Location SSP Booth 117
Time: Wednesday, November 7, 2018, at 3:00 PM 
The demands being placed upon a utility are rapidly evolving and this trend is only expected to accelerate over the next several decades. As technologists in the utility industry, we must have a clear vision of the future requirements, thorough knowledge of where we are today, and an actionable plan to continually advance our solutions to meet new challenges. The keynote will discuss energy industry trends as well as the advancements being made in and around our GIS, work, and asset management systems that will allow us to keep pace with the continuous evolution of energy.
