New market research on Utility Geographic Information Systems available

 
April 2nd, 2012 by Susan Smith

Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue: Utility Geographic Information Systems

GIS Tools and Workflow Applications for AEC and Operations: Market Analysis and Forecasts

The electrical grid consists of power generation, transmission, distribution, and customer assets that literally cover the face of the earth. Ultimately, the smart grid is all about awareness of the situation of these assets in order to facilitate optimal performance and effectively anticipate and respond to events that might disrupt performance. A geographic information system (GIS) is the method by which utilities capture, store, manipulate, analyze, and manage geospatially referenced information about these assets. Geodata types relevant to electric utilities might include everything from land-based data, streets, ownership/real estate, vegetation, network topology, GPS location data, census data, and many others.

Since spatial data underlies everything an electric utility does, GIS is the only foundational view that can potentially link every operational activity of an electric utility including design and construction, asset management, workforce management, and outage management as well as supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), distribution management systems (DMSs), renewables, and strategy planning. Today, utilities are enhancing these key smart grid business processes by implementing GIS applications to support optimal operations.

This Pike Research report analyzes the global market opportunity for GIS across four key application segments: GIS tools and GIS workflow applications for both AEC and operations applications. The report provides a comprehensive assessment of the demand drivers, business models, and technology issues associated with this rapidly growing opportunity. Key industry players are profiled in depth and worldwide software and services revenue, segmented by region, are provided through 2017.
