The Path Forward: Transmission Trends, Digital Transformation, and Regulatory Insights (Sponsored by Utilligent)

Analytics & The Keys To Future Success: The Exelon Journey (Sponsored by Infosys)

Prior to the implementation of smart grid, visibility to the T&D system was limited. New sources of data such as AMI, reclosers, and distributed sensors at different points along the grid network increase visibility into the performance and health of the assets. The Grid T&D domain is designed to enable EU to leverage smart grid data as a strategic asset to generate actionable intelligence, drive innovation, improve operational efficiencies, and unlock new business insights. The Data Analytics Platform (DAP) will serve as the foundational tool for convergence and scalability of analytical solutions across Exelon Utilities. These analytic insights will drive sustained value by improving reliability and customer satisfaction, decreasing operational cost, and capturing new revenue opportunities.

Defining requirements for your Asset Management Program: Why understanding your Asset Types is critical and why not doing so could doom your implementation

In this session, we will discuss the inherent differences between Assets across Generation, Transmission, Distribution and the emerging EDGE device space in relationship to their actual nature and how this affects the work and resources requirements to install and manage them on a day to day basis. We will then explore how these differences affect specific functional and technical capabilities that are required to manage each effectively. We will use some specific examples to examine how these differences drive different approaches to, not only EAM functionality, but also how this affects the degree and complexity of supporting integration functionality with other solutions.
