Smart Meter Data Management System (MDMS) is a major component of the Digital Utility Platform. It is supporting the Digital Transformation of the Utility Business by integrating Smart Meters' Data granularity into processes related to Billing, Customer Engagement, Outage Management, and Advanced Distribution Management, to name a few.

The ten (10) recommendations listed in this article are critical to such implementation and can be as well leveraged for other digital utility undertakings.

Which of these recommendations do you think utility leaders have the hardest time accepting?

I believe the ones related to Systems Integration may be the most difficult to implement especially in the absence of an overarching "Digital Utility Platform" Architecture. The last two recommendations related to System Maturity may also be hard to accept since utilities' would prefer to fully harness the power of their MDMS as soon as it is implemented, however the reality dictates that we need to reach a certain data maturity across the different systems prior to going full fledge.
