    “Many organizations and stakeholders in the utility sector are only beginning their data journey and dealing with questions such as what data sets are meaningful, how do I build out my IT infrastructure to support the capability? How do we ingest, correlate and disseminate that data out in an impactful and efficient way? What is my data governance structure? Others have made great progress in their journey that offer lessons learned and strategic approaches to pass forward to their community. We find that great outcomes can occur when we bring together these diverse groups to have this interchange of knowledge and ideas,” Ms. Mckenzie further stated.
