Utility Network- The new platform for GIS solutions for Utilities will change the way the assets are being managed and maintained in the system. Utility network will address some of the complex problems, provide solutions, and can be a business enabler. The change from the existing platform to the new Utility Network is transformational in nature. It encompasses business process changes, applications development, database migration, refreshing GIS integration touchpoints and change management.

The new solution will change the ArcGIS- Geometric Network nexus that was ruling the Utility customers on Esri towards a more advanced Pro- Utility Network combination due to the change in need, demand and the way the customers manage the assets today.

The paper will highlight the key advantages of the new platform, highlighting the key changes and differentiators, and a high level view of how to achieve the transformation with minimum risk, zero downtime and maximizing the impact. From the POC and prototypes done so far it has been established that the existing GIS needs to be future ready before taking the big leap towards the Utility Network. And there is no single model that would fit all. The model mentioned here is a derived from similar prototypes done for several utility customers across the world.

There seems to be a lot of excitement about this new utility network-- what would you say is the top takeaway that utilities should be most excited about (if you can narrow it down)?
