1-Day Virtual Event
. Welcome to GIS4SmartGrid 2020. GIS departments are under increasing pressure to provide accurate, real-time and meaningful topological information to a variety of internal and external stakeholders. Legacy GIS systems, traditionally utilised for asset management processes, must now be overhauled and upgraded to provide new functionalities to support a greater range of use-cases, essential to the efficient operation of a more complex grid.
Welcome to GIS4SmartGrid 2020 Virtual Conference
GIS departments are under increasing pressure to provide accurate, real-time and meaningful topological information to a variety of internal and external stakeholders. Legacy GIS systems, traditionally utilised for asset management processes, must now be overhauled and upgraded to provide new functionalities to support a greater range of use-cases, essential to the efficient operation of a more complex grid.
This intensive 1-day virtual conference provides the information and inspiration you need to drive your GIS people, processes, and platforms to the next level. Technology choices, implementation lessons and future roadmaps will be discussed in the context of organisational objectives and regulatory pressures, providing robust guidance to help you benchmark your own GIS strategy, fine-tune your own implementation plans, and drive your own GIS department to its next level of success.
This programme consists of 12 x case-studies, 3 x technology innovation presentations, 4 x live Q&A panel sessions, a 90-minute roundtable discussion session, and more. There is no better time to step back and review how you are implementing next-generation GIS solutions, integrating them with IT and OT systems, and leveraging new functionalities to support a wider range of end users in your organisation.
