SSP iLLUMINATE IS YOUR GIS DATA READY FOR EMERGING TECHNOLOGY?

Virtual | Sep 02, 2021

Augmented Reality. “Big Data” Business Intelligence. Smart Grid. These are the three most words I see pretty much every day scrolling through platforms like LinkedIn. The posts are usually from vendors, consulting firms, or utility clients all talking about leveraging these frameworks to improve the way a utility operates. This is my morning, the optimistic part of my day.

The reality is most utilities do not have the data to support these technologies to the benefit that would justify the expense. I don’t think too many people would disagree with this, at least nobody has disagreed with me over the last decade I have been on this soapbox. To be fair some of the data needed for these technologies hasn’t traditionally been required or maintained by GIS groups. But this isn’t the whole story. So, what do you need to do to prepare for the utility of the future? In this talk I will look at several paths you can follow to start building your data into the trusted asset it can be.
