The Emergence of Meter Data Management (MDM): A Smart Grid Information Strategy Report

by

MDM strategies are evolving and are influenced by smart grid vision, goals and objectives.  These factors drive business requirements that, in turn, define the types of data that need to be collected, where it needs to go, and the format it needs to be in to make it usable.  An organization with a coherent MDM platform strategy will be better equipped to take advantage of their smart grid capabilities and make informed technology choices down the road.

The Emergence of Meter Data Management (MDM): A Smart Grid Information Strategy Report analyzes the best plans for MDM deployment and presents technology drivers and inhibitors as MDM strives toward significant growth along side the rollout of smart meters and AMI infrastructure in the United States.
