Getting More Out of Your AMI Implementation with AMI Analytics
Have you implemented AMI but feel there is more value to be gained? Look to analytics.
Planning an AMI rollout or replacement? Make sure to include value-add use cases with analytics that go beyond just meter-to-cash.
These value-add use cases are commonly referred to as AMI 2.0 use cases. AMI 2.0 is really the second major wave of use cases that leverage advanced analytic technologies to generate additional value from AMI data, and can be accompanied with a wholesale AMI meter replacement for early AMI adopters.
Utegration has successfully implemented AMI at many utilities, but we often see projects fall short of the strategic business objectives due to the scope of those projects. You want to harness the potential AMI has for your customers and your utility. In this webinar replay, we discuss an approach to AMI analytics, review a list of use cases for AMI data, and how to create insight-to-action by embedding information into your business processes.
