Increasing regulatory complexity. New cybersecurity threats. A wave of smart technologies. Escalating performance demands. These are just a few of the challenges utility providers are confronting.
CSC offers solutions that provide utilities with a strategic opportunity: proven business results through technology renewal and innovation.
Advanced Metering Infrastructure and Smart Meter Solutions
Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) and Smart Meter technologies offer utilities opportunities to enhance customer service and improve their operational efficiency. With proper identification and assessment of risks, and the design of controls and mitigation strategies throughout the AMI deployment process, the security risks associated with your AMI program can be reduced to an acceptable level, and the benefits of improved customer service and operational efficiency can be realized.
Smart Grid/Smart Meter Solutions
By 2020, virtually all electric, gas, and water distribution systems will be designed, constructed, and operated with “Smart Meter/Smart Grid” technology as a critical element of both the physical network infrastructure and the back office solution. Though it is unclear what the best-in-class solutions will look like and how they will impact the customer base, one thing is certain — an effective smart grid strategy will be necessary in order to remain viable in the electric distribution business.
The pressure is mounting to transform your systems and operations to manage a massive increase in data and information. Our Smart Utility framework will guide you, in a methodical, step-by-step manner, through every step of your smart-grid transformation journey, from implementation to management.
Our extensive experience working end to end across the meter-to-cash process enables us to provide you pragmatic insights in managing through this unprecedented change. Together we develop clear strategies and tactics to transform your operations to meet the challenges ahead. Underpinning this subject-matter expertise, and core to our business, is our industry-recognized “know how.” Process change alone, while critical to performance, doesn’t get you far. It’s all about automation.
