Itron has surfaced as the leader in the meter data management system market
A recent report from Navigant Research examines the strategy and execution of 11 leading meter data management systems (MDMSs) vendors, providing industry participants with an objective assessment of these companies’ relative strengths and weaknesses in the global MDMS market.
The global market for MDM solutions has diversified as established competitors and new entrants offer more comprehensive and complex solutions. Recently, utilities have placed new demands upon their MDMSs, stretching capabilities to work across diverse utility systems and support applications beyond the traditional meter-to-cash and customer information system (CIS) functions. Click to tweet: According to a recent report from @NavigantRSRCH, leading utilities in the MDMS market are investing in major systems upgrades.
“The market for utility data management and analytics is growing faster than ever, with a number of new competitors positioning themselves as providers of MDMSs to some degree,” says Paige Leuschner, research analyst with Navigant Research. “Itron’s upcoming innovations and upgrades will bring new technologies and capabilities to the market, and this has the potential to revolutionize its already comprehensive MDM solution.”
Landis+Gyr, Oracle, and Siemens (eMeter) are all in close pursuit of Itron, according to the report. With strong grasps on the market, millions of managed smart meter deployments, and forward-looking MDM solutions, any one of these players has the potential to take the top spot.
