What is the Future Role for Your Utility?

The future role for utilities in the energy revolution is not determined yet. Some will continue to maintain an aging IT infrastructure and dedicated focus on traditional grid operation. Other utilities will grab the opportunity to become the platform operator driving innovation by integrating energy data across the entire value chain. What is your plan?

Traditional System Integration is Risky and Slow

The traditional system integration approach involves acquiring middleware and engaging with a system integrator to build a customized solution with a lengthy, costly and high-risk integration project. That is no longer an adequate approach for utilities dealing with a fast-paced energy revolution. You must move fast with less risk.

From Grid Operator to Digital Utility

Utilities can take a proactive role in the energy revolution, or be left behind as more flexible, more efficient and innovative competitors and alternatives overtake them. Disruptive and data driven business models will dominate the energy industry. Right now, utilities have a substantial opportunity to take the role as a platform operator enabling innovation and driving the energy revolution.

Metercloud Defines a New Approach

It is time for new approach to system integration for digital utilities. This is Metercloud. System integration delivered in a SaaS model, with out-of-the-box support to enable integration of software operating smart meters and smart grids. A platform that puts the utility in the driver’s seat for operating an advanced ecosystem with seamless integration of software to optimize a digital grid.

Why Metercloud is a Better Fit for Digital Transformation

Traditional system integration projects typically run on classical middleware or an integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS). The system integrator delivers a custom development project where they establish connectivity, a data model, integration flows, and monitoring. All these components are included for a fixed subscription price on Metercloud. With prebuilt support for business processes in utilities, Metercloud significantly reduces risk, costs, and time-to-value.

Reduce Total Cost of Ownership with Metercloud

Since traditional system integration involves custom development with a system integrator, utilities are facing high upfront costs. Operation of custom integrations drives high costs, and any updates or implementation of new software will trigger another integration project. Metercloud’s subscription model disrupts the traditional delivery model and utilities can typically obtain a 10-year TCO saving up to 25 % whilst significantly reducing project risk.
