IT Applications Market in Global Utilities to 2020 - Meter Data Management Emerging as a Key Application towards Cost Efficient and Customer Centric Future Meter Data Management Application Market Going to Witness Exponential Growth Worldwide Meter to Cash is one of the most important processes of a utility and meter readings are their biggest assets. Utilities invest heavily in new technologies in order to make their meter reading process more efficient and error free. There has been significant technological advancement to improve the meter reading process from handheld devices to automated meter reading systems. The latest advancement in the meter reading process is Advanced Metering Infrastructure, which allows utilities to not only collect meter reading in a more efficient way but also enables the two way communication between the meter at consumer premises and utility systems. With the advent of AMI, smart meters would be able to record meter readings at every 15 minute interval. Now consider a big utility serving millions of customers, would be generating billions of readings per month. To manage the data of this quantum and to be able to fully extract the useful information from this data, utilities would be requiring a innovative IT system, which can clean, validate, process and transform this data into manageable and usable information.
