Challenges

Utilities face new opportunities and challenges brought on by the march of a digital revolution. The challenge for power and utility companies will be to build a comprehensive customer experience, drive operational efficiency and embrace big data opportunities. These previous big picture challenges need to be supported at O&M level to maximise technology for site management efficiency by improving control of work and safety activities that encompass interconnected mobile systems, especially regarding field workers and where maintenance is being contracted out.
