Esri Releases World's First Complete Utility GIS Platform

REDLANDS, Calif., Jan. 23, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Esri, the global leader in geographic information system (GIS) technology and spatial analytics, today announced that it is releasing advanced network capabilities for utilities as part of the company's ArcGIS platform. The ArcGIS Utility Network Management extension, which delivers the new utility network, lets users create, manage, and share complete data about networks from source to demand, such as residential meters for electric, water, wastewater, gas, district heating, and telecommunications companies.

These network management capabilities enhance Esri's current utility platform for handling billions of data elements while providing access to the utility network on any device, anytime, anywhere. For the first time, workers will be able to edit and trace the path of a network from a smart device while in the field and share information securely and more easily with those who need it. Previously, each utility subnetwork—like transmission lines, substations, and distribution and low-voltage networks—had its own separate GIS database.

The utility network provides a holistic system for every component of the utility supply chain right down to the customer, as well as the ability to store unprecedented detail on each of these components, which will be very important as utilities evolve to provide higher-fidelity information to operational systems.

"We are very excited about the release of our next generation utility platform," said Jeff Rashid, Esri global director for utilities and communications. "These advanced capabilities will help utilities and telecoms provide greater details about their networks across their organization, at a rate of speed not seen in the past."

The ArcGIS Utility Network Management extension allows the utility network to be completely cross-platform capable, meaning it is not confined to users of desktop GIS software. Prior to this innovation, location data was not easily accessible for fieldworkers or executives, managers, service technicians, and accountants who needed to have accurate, real-time understanding of utility assets.

In addition, Esri partners in the utility field will be able to use this network to add greater value to their workflow, create new solutions allowing personnel to be more efficient, and to better satisfy the needs of their customers. 

“We are excited about the new capabilities in Esri’s utility network management platform and look forward to evolving the ArcFM Solution XI Series to offer utilities unprecedented value,” said Jay Stinson, general manager, Schneider Electric Geospatial Business. “This next generation platform enables us to build a world class ecosystem for managing the design and construction workflow. The continued strength of the historic Esri and SE partnership will help utilities realize the full potential of their GIS investment, equipping them to address the challenges facing today’s digital utility.”
