Date/Time: Wednesday, July 12th @ 2:30 PM
Location: Grand Ballroom 9 | Marriott

Vertically integrated gas utilities around the world are simultaneously modernizing their Enterprise Asset Management strategy along with their GIS technology and tools. This combination demands that utilities and vendors approach the project as more than a simple technology upgrade and data migration, but rather a complete review of all business data, workflows, and technology. This presentation will highlight how these large-scale enterprise programs are being approached at SSP, as well as how the workflows in GIS, and around the entire gas business, are being affected and improved.

Presenters: Ryan Bechtel, SSP Innovations, and Edward So, Southern Company Gas
