IEC CIM Training – Basics & Uses

July 22, 2020 - July 23, 2020

This course provides an opportunity for individuals to receive master-class style training from individuals who have experience implementing the IEC Common Information Model (CIM) standard worldwide. This unique set of sessions provides training and real-world examples of how utilities use IEC CIM.
The IEC Common Information Model (CIM), a standard developed by the electric power industry, has been officially adopted by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). It aims to allow data providers and consumers to exchange and store information in a standard manner. IEC CIM was originally focused on the makeup of the electrical network. Over the years, it has expanded to include additional functions such as assets, asset management, work, meters, meter readings, customers and much more. It is a starting point from which a utility can build an information architecture to help define a business vocabulary, otherwise known as “semantics,” for its day-to-day operations.
Consider the following:

  • Does your organization desire an information model that is technology and vendor agnostic that drives data-in-motion (integration) and data-in-rest (structured storage and analytics)?
  • Is there a desire to foster a data-driven culture, where data is considered an asset?
  • Does your organization need a consistent, well-defined data fabric that facilitates the reduction of technical debt across the organization?

Cost: $395
