One of the most sensitive aspects of advanced situational and location intelligence revolves around customer/employee privacy, data collection methods, security of the information being collected and the policies that utilities have in place as to who has access to the data and for how long.

Please advise us on how we can improve this blueprint or any other observations you would like to share. Thank you and regards.
