The goal for any utility that invests in smart grid technology is to attain higher efficiency and reliable performance. A smart grid platform implies the convergence of Operations Technology (OT) – the grid physical infrastructure assets and applications, and Information Technology (IT) – the human interface that enables rapid and informed decision making. This paper describes best practices for migrating to a scalable, adaptable, smart grid network.How the Convergence of IT and OT Enables Smart Grid Development
The regulatory and operational landscape of Smart Grid technologies is highly complex. Conducting thorough research-based strategic planning is essential. Each utility must map its journey to becoming a Smart Utility based on its own unique business drivers and technology needs. This paper presents a proven five-step methodology for developing a cost-effective roadmap for achieving Smart Grid capabilities and maximizing their benefits.Developing a Roadmap to a Smarter Utility
