Abstract: Presented by Ed May at Smart Metering West Coast

Advanced metering pushes utility IT departments to be smarter. Extracting value from an order-of-magnitude increase is metering data requires new systems and processes. At the same time, it’s costly to complete re-engineer the IT infrastructure of a major investor-owned utility. Smart meter data management can help utilities gain value from data while also isolating the IT department from logistics of metering and meter data collection. One key aspect to smart meter data management is applying open standards to architecting meter data management systems. This presentation discusses five key open standards that can help make meter data management, and utility IT departments, smarter.
