Architect leading automation investments for Digital Utilities

UDC has prepared electric and gas reference models that reflect industry learning on successful solutions for electric and gas utilities. We leverage proven reference models and investments as a basis to jump starting your solution gapping differences when necessary. Prior experience allows us to provide practical guidelines and blueprints that when overlaid with your current architecture enables us to focus on variances. UDC looks at what’s possible using what works as a reference point. Imparting a real-world approach based on peer learning shortens the project timeline by focusing the discussion and serving as a realistic starting point for evaluating what is achievable. UDC’s reference models are organically grown and updated consistently to reflect changing and new technologies and maintain a focus on rolling education forward.
