The changing utility landscape, frequency of intense storms, addition of new energy sources, and a new digital-savvy generation have forever changed the way utilities operate. As ADMS applications become table stakes, it’s critical that utilities choose an ADMS platform that is flexible, scalable, highly interoperable, and cost effective.
A best-of-breed approach, once considered ideal, is now proving to be too complex, resource-intensive, and expensive to maintain and operate effectively. There is no clear single source of operational truth. Every device change or addition requires administrators to update multiple systems immediately. Each time an application is upgraded, interoperability testing must be performed with all systems. Operators must consult multiple screens to perform their duties. Utilities must pay multiple support contracts and maintain separate hardware infrastructures for each application.
Utilities need a trusted ADMS partner with a proven, reliable platform that provides a holistic solution to all their grid modernization needs.
SurvalentONE ADMS is a fully integrated SCADA, OMS, and DMS solution, delivering real-time operational intelligence to proactively respond to issues and take corrective action when necessary.
Single source of operational truth – A unified ADMS solution gives utilities a single source of operational truth for SCADA, OMS, and DMS for easier change management and upgrades. One network model and one database ensure that all changes in the database or any ADMS application automatically and instantaneously updates across all ADMS applications. This saves valuable resource time from redundant system updates when changes occur or new devices are added.
Reduced operational costs – Having common hardware and communication infrastructure for all ADMS applications and getting one set of redundant servers versus multiple redundant servers for each application significantly reduces hardware and labor costs.
Highly interoperable: SurvalentONE ADMS platform is built for integration. It uses 99.9% of original code to interface with third-party, legacy, and homegrown systems. System upgrades include all platform and application updates and are fully regression tested across all modules, eliminating the need to test all systems for interoperability when one application is upgraded.
Easy to use: SurvalentONE ADMS is easy to learn, edit, administer, and operate. With one GUI across all systems, users can navigate the system faster and dramatically reduce learning time. Standard platform tools enable utilities to quickly and easily administer and update the system, thereby reducing maintenance costs.
Flexible licensing structure – Survalent’s flexible licensing structure enables utilities to build a foundation for growth – utilities can start with a select group of feeders, substations, and applications and scale up over time.
