  • Ensuring key business needs are identified upfront to determine the ArcGIS Platform and utility network upgrade architecture and functional capabilities
  • Determining and prioritizing the critical factors, such as data needing to be cleansed and updated to streamline the upgrade and to take fully advantage of the ArcGIS Platform

From initial design right through to retirement, Lifecycle has all the features you need – and none you don’t – to proactively manage and intelligently operate your utility network. Powerful and robust, Lifecycle works well either as a standalone solution or side-by-side with existing work and asset management systems to deliver increased value, efficiency, and engagement.


Session Topic: How to reduce the risk in your move to the Utility Network

Location: SSP booth #619

Time: Wednesday, July 11th @ 4pm

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!

Booth #619

As always, you can find SSP on the exhibition floor. This year we’ll be in booth #619. Please stop by to say hello, catch up, ask a question or look at one of our offerings!
