Siemens recently expanded its EnergyIP® Meter Data Management (MDM) Software portfolio by developing the EnergyIP MDM Software as a Service (SaaS). It provides utilities, municipalities, and co-operatives with a flexible, extendable, and lower-cost option to access and monitor their advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) systems and enhance the meter-to-cash capabilities. Basing the MDM software in the Cloud allows users to read and analyze their meters quickly, validate the data, and bill customers more accurately without incurring heavy upfront IT infrastructure or software investment costs and associated ongoing maintenance.
“Our MDM SaaS offering helps utilities acquire an MDM solution without having to worry about managing or upgrading it,” says Rafael Ozaki, Business Unit Head for Digital Grid and President of eMeter, Siemens Smart Infrastructure USA. “Utilities won’t need to purchase the IT infrastructure and software or allocate staff to ensure all the infrastructure is operating correctly – that’s on us.”
Pre-installed and pre-configured, MDM SaaS from Siemens uses AWS cloud platform to host utilities’ data. Utilities pay a monthly subscription fee for using the system and obtaining high quality data for billing. The service offering is compatible with any manufacturer’s smart meter, and it can work for any size utility – from small to large. The service includes regular software upgrades, new features, and maintenance like bug fixes and security updates – all done by Siemens in the Cloud.
