Utility Network Migration
Migrate your data to the new ArcGIS Utility Network
Network data underpins your business. It is your most important asset. We can help you confidently migrate your ArcGIS® geometric network data, to the new ArcGIS Utility Network data model, Esri’s next generation spatial information system for electric, gas, telecommunication, wastewater and water networks.
Migrations are incredibly complex in scope and scale. It takes time to assess the quality of your data, complete a migration, and plan for longevity, making it a costly process. The time and cost associated depends on how you migrate from old to new. As specialists in location data management, we have decades of experience in assessing and improving data quality, data modelling, and data mapping, and inherently understand your location and utility network data.
Migrations can be incredibly disruptive and require thorough strategic planning to validate and cleanse data and ensure connectivity. Our process keeps your network data synchronised between old and new network models to allow dual running and incremental adoption until your whole organisation is ready to move to ArcGIS Utility Network.
Our experts will simplify the process and work collaboratively to ensure disruption is kept to a minimum.
Esri will cease support for the geometric network model in January 2024. They have committed to supporting ArcGIS Utility Network for the next 15-20 years, therefore the successful migration of your network data is essential. Migrating to the new ArcGIS Utility Network will protect your investment and enhance the value of your network data. Therefore, you will avoid the costs of supporting an otherwise retired data management model.
Our experts will complete a data quality assessment, deliver a successful migration, and provide the tools to ensure that data captured is complete, correct, and consistent for years to come.
It’s all in the approach
- Review your readiness to migrate using a proven process. A detailed ‘health check’ of your current network data will identify any limitations and we will help you decide on the extent of the data model.
- Assess your network data in terms of its quality, connectivity, and completeness, as well as assessing existing and future integrations between your network data and other business systems.
- Plan and prioritise the migration and data quality management so that it is iteratively migrated to ArcGIS Utility Network, and to ensure that you achieve your data quality outcomes.
- Undertake the refactoring of workflows and business processes around the new model and a new set of tools.
Working collaboratively to design your ArcGIS Utility Network configuration, our agile approach to project management will quickly prove the value of the ArcGIS Utility Network. We iteratively deliver working outputs that can be used for validating workflows, preparing for business change, and showcasing new tools to your organisation.
We will develop a Migration Strategy and Roadmap to guide you in the planning of a full migration. This will give your organisation the confidence to embark on your full ArcGIS Utility Network migration.
Our experienced consultants and engineers, together with selected partners, have the full range of software tools, expertise, and substantial experience in data modelling, data mapping and data quality assurance. We develop specific data quality toolsets that not only help you migrate your data to Esri’s new ArcGIS Utility Network but also ensure persistent quality levels for years to come. We also exploit the supplier trust and technical competence that comes from our Silver level Esri partner accreditation.
