Utility Cloud

Article: How the Cloud is Revolutionizing Utilities

Cloud technology is revolutionizing the way utilities maximize operations and enhance data management, especially in retail operations. However, it is not as simple as moving processes and capacity into the cloud. How can utilities reap the benefits of emerging technology?


Cloud-based metering services

At a glance

Built upon the leading EnergyIP Meter Data Management platform and it's applications, Siemens Software as a Service (SaaS) and Managed Services offer utilities a timely, cost-effective and secure solution for planning, implementing and operating their smart metering infrastructure. The cloud-based offerings are easily adjustable and scalable at any time - from hosting applications all the way to operations services.

Our portfolio: M2C as a Service and SCADA as a Service

Siemens delivers enhanced financial, technical and operational value to its customers through enduring service partnerships that encompass consult, design, build, operate and maintain functions throughout a lasting successful relationship and a service lifecycle. At the heart of the service offering is the concept of Siemens providing more immediate results for customers than traditional projects can. Service outcomes can be ‘consumed’ more quickly than a traditional project can purchase, install, set up, configure complex integrations between third parties, and begin operation of an overall solution. The two main service areas are Meter-to-Cash as a Service and SCADA as a Service.

Siemens Meter-to-Cash as a Service delivers immediate results

Siemens offers a reliable, secure and cost-effective alternative to a traditional smart metering solution which requires the utility to procure and install smart meters, set-up a robust communications network, build-up a fault-tolerant computing environment and install and configure all the necessary smart metering applications necessary to support traditional metering operations.

Siemens Meter-to-Cash as a Service covers the provision of all / part of the highlighted boxes as multiple individual services that our customers can consume.

Service Offerings

We offer services that can cater to all sizes of utilities and independent  service providers from thousands of meters to millions of meters.
This includes hardware services such as provision of metering or provision of communication hardware all the way through software services such as provision of an MDM and the surrounding software such as enterprise mobility or integration / translation services utilizing an API Platform. We believe that a large part of the value of our services comes from the experience of our people; built into the services we deliver and in the people that are part of the delivery / operation of your service.
