by | May 18, 2022

Utility application portfolios are constantly evolving as new business needs arise and legacy applications are retired. Utilization of IEC CIM and other industry standards for semantic modeling reduces integration effort for utility IT projects. It rationalizes integration effort across enterprise applications and reduces costs.

Building on industry standards such as CIM improves a business’s ability to adapt and leads to business innovation.
