GIS in the Modern Utility: Even More Relevant Today Than a Year AgoPosted to Esri in the Digital Utility Group

Last year, I had the pleasure of joining the Energy Central Power Perspectives Podcast to discuss all the ways that geographic information systems (GIS) was key to unlocking the possibility of the modern utility.
That episode, which you can listen to below, allowed me to really highlight the ways I saw GIS becoming the driver of utility optimization, maintenance, crisis response, and more. In the over a year since we recorded that episode, the utility sector has been through quite a lot: wildfires, emergency outages, workers needing to deal with COVID protocols, cyber threats, and so much more. Each of these instances can be related in some way back to the world of GIS and the importance of utilities embracing the technology today so they can be implemented seamlessly as solutions on an ongoing basis.
For that reason, I wanted to once again share a link to this podcast so interested parties could hear my thoughts, and I invite all questions and comments on the topic in the comments section below!
PS-- stay tuned, because in the coming weeks I will be appearing on the podcast again and I can give further updates at that point. And perhaps if there are compelling questions on this post, I can work in some answers to those as well!
