"Itron Enterprise Edition (IEE) MDM is evolving to meet the needs of an
IoT world, where more data processing and analysis is taking place in
edge devices rather than solely in MDM systems and the back office. This
means supporting a broader range of devices, data sets and protocols
than just metering and having the intelligence and business flows to
enable analytic processing to take place where it makes the most sense,"
IEE MDM is a mature product with a broad functional scope and robust
validating, editing and estimating (VEE) capabilities, Gartner reported.
The industry-leading solution is in production at 76 utility companies
with more than 38 million cumulative meters. Itron's IEE MDM and related
analytic outcomes are delivered via the cloud using a managed services
model, called Itron Total Outcomes, in which
Gartner's research evaluated 14 vendors' ability to execute and completeness of vision. According to the report, "leaders in this market normally are included on shortlists for MDM products for all types of utilities worldwide. They should perform profitably, grow their revenue and have a presence in all major markets. Their functionality must be above-average, and their technology and scalability must be leading-edge. They must offer an MDM product that supports the functional needs of utilities operating in multiple market structures (integrated and unbundled), and focuses on customer-related, asset-related and market-related consumption data use. Because of the diverse drivers for AMI and MDM deployments, buyers worldwide continue to have a wide-ranging set of needs and wants that challenge providers to develop a single product that is equally appealing to buyers in different regions."
