Thanks for the follow up, Paul. And here's Mark's post from June 24 that he referenced, which is indeed relevant to this discussion: https://www.energycentral.com/c/iu/problem-connecting-smart-meters-was-solved-30-years-ago-powered-scalable
Excited to hear more about this-- GIS has the power to unlock so much potential, but not used properly and it's almost another stranded asset. Collecting and having data is only part of the battle, it must be used effectively and creatively
GIS is definitely stranding asset data into a silo. With disparate systems, data can be out-of-date leading to misinformation. Often, this data gets used mainly as a digital map that manages static assets.
