Client: Leading Distribution (electricity and gas) Network Operator in Flanders, Belgium
Industry: Utilities
Project: Implementation of industry standard for Information Management 

Business challenge: 

The electricity industry is becoming more and more a smart industry, where challenges are faced by bi-directional power streams, green energy, regulations,... These challenges require a more efficient integration of disparate information systems. For this semantic integration, the leading distribution network operator wanted to implement IEC's industry standards 61970 and 61968.
