Anaheim, CA, U.S.A. — (METERING.COM) — April 23, 2007 – Anaheim Public Utilities has plans to implement a meter data management system (MDMS) as an integral component of its advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) strategy, and has engaged Enspiria Solutions to assist with the acquisition. MDMS is essential for the utility to achieve maximum benefits from its AMI investments. It will ensure that the data available from AMI, as well as existing metering sources, is transformed into timely, accurate, and useful information to improve customer service, billing and settlement, engineering and operations, and energy and asset management. MDMS will also help ensure that the AMI system is properly managed and maintained.
"We recognized the need for expert support for our MDMS RFP development and vendor evaluation to ensure that the MDMS will meet our present and future needs," said Stephen Nees, Technology Development Manager for Anaheim Public Utilities. "Enspiria Solutions has the extensive MDMS and AMI knowledge and experience required to guide our process and to help us secure the optimum system."
Enspiria Solutions is providing the following services in support of Anaheim’s MDMS acquisition: visioning and strategic planning, enterprise architecture, integration requirements, technical and functional requirements specifications, proposal evaluation framework and process, technical assessments and total cost of ownership analysis, and vendor demo requirements and facilitation.
