Leveraging ArcGIS Across The Utility Enterprise
Track: Electric Utilities
Authors: Brian Fitterman, James Street
Northeast Utilities had an existing GIS implementation of GE Smallworld for engineering functions. We needed to leverage the network asset data across all areas of the company and determined ArcGIS was the best platform in which to do this. A synchronization architecture was implemented to replicate the data from Smallworld into an SDE enabled Oracle Spatial Database from which NU has been able to implement a number of initiatives in ArcGIS such as an enterprise web portal and mobile GIS.
