Operational Technology Expertise to Support Utility Distribution

The operational needs of the distribution utility are changing. Customer and regulatory demands for improved system robustness and resiliency along with the increasing penetration of Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) and Electric Vehicles (EVs) are a few of the key drivers of these changes.

At the same time, automation, monitoring and control of the distribution infrastructure of electric and gas utilities has become a transformational initiative. We assist our clients with the transformation of their operational technologies (OT) with a value-driven approach, providing the expertise, resources, and rigor for successful outcomes for their OT, IT, and business stakeholders.

The modern OT landscape is more than just SCADA. Today, there is a broad set of data-intensive applications generating, collecting, manipulating, and presenting information to the utility organization. When properly implemented and integrated, these applications improve operational situational awareness, decisions, and safety. The typical OT applications and systems that fall into this mix include Advanced Distribution Management System (ADMS), Distributed Energy Resources Management System (DERMS), Distribution Automation (FLISR, VVC/VVO), and Gas Control and Pipeline Management Applications.

Each of these has unique needs, challenges, and risks. However, OT transformations have a common set of characteristics to be considered and addressed throughout the solution lifecycle. We provide value to clients at any or all points in the lifecycle of OT programs.

We seek partners in innovation. Let's start the conversation.
