One of the major factors that causes grid modernization projects to fail is system integration. In order to successfully integrate systems, you must know what you are integrating and what that means to your utility. At the core is the data within the systems. Without proper understanding of your data, you will be unable to effectively leverage it to make good business decisions. You will have a maintenance challenge that is more costly over time with little chance to produce useful analytics in a timely manner. From current research of clients and industry, a utility spends about 80% of the time of an analytic project cleaning up data and only 20% of the time on analysis.
This webinar will provide participants a better understanding of the IEC CIM standard and how utilities worldwide are using it to drive data transformation.
Upon completion of this webinar the participant will be able to:
• Define the IEC CIM and its components
• Understand how utilities use it for transformation
• Develop a short-term plan to address the IEC CIM
