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.

Our Migration Approach

Your network data is a vital and complex asset. Migrating it successfully requires an iterative, collaborative approach with trusted experts.

We understand spatial data. We’ve got decades of experience dealing with their complexities, dependencies and nuances. But no one knows your network like you do. 

Our approach is a partnership – working with you, not for you.

We start with a thorough data readiness assessment before implementing your migration, producing a comprehensive list of where your data needs fixing, and how to fix it. Our flexible suite of data management tools provide a configurable and intuitive interface to suit your needs.

Validation, validation, validation – it’s at the heart of every stage in our process. Our agile approach has short feedback loops, repeatedly running validation so that any changes are double-checked. This could be scheduled overnight - so you can start your day with a cup of coffee and a fresh report, knowing exactly where your data stands.

There are no opaque lists or mysterious error codes here – our platform provides location hotspots and clear validation messages that describe exactly how your data has failed, where it is located, and what action is required. 

Fixes can be made automatically or manually, depending on the nature of the change that needs to be made.

Our approach is supported by configurable tools that we’ve developed to make each stage of the process as seamless and simple-to-use as possible. They make validation, transformation and synchronisation processes repeatable and measurable, maintaining an audit trail of all changes made. We’ll always know why, when and where there were any edits to your data.

Gain confidence and minimise disruption

Undertaking a major data transformation while upgrading a business-critical system could be a daunting prospect. The 1Spatial solution combines established data governance principles with our experience and expertise to guide our customers through each step of a successful migration.

Here are our top 10 things to consider before starting a migration:

  1. Do you have a data catalogue and data quality baseline available?
  2. What are the core IT and data principles the project should adhere to?
  3. Does all your current GIS data need to be migrated into the new system?
  4. Have you got enough information to be able to run a successful procurement process?
  5. Which stakeholders need to be engaged early?
  6. Which business processes and systems would be impacted?
  7. Who will be responsible for the data validation and fix-up process?
  8. What does the go-live plan look like?
  9. How will you educate and engage the user community to prepare them for the new system?
  10. How will you maintain your data quality post-migration?
