Smallworld upgrade managing energy grid

We’re happy to announce that our team completed main part of the Smallworld EL.GIS upgrade project at innogy Stoen Operator (part of the innogy Group). Expanded solution will support over 350 users in managing energy grid of Polish capital city.

Smallworld EL.GIS has been used by innogy since 1998, before Electric Office was introduced. Last year our team launched El.GIS extension project to meet growing business needs of innogy.

Upgrade, data migration and new interfaces

During the project EL.GIS was successfully upgraded from Smallworld 3.1 to 4.3 version. The works covered network model adjustment and migration of over 6 million objects (completed with 99.7% effectiveness). Our team also integrated EL.GIS with BPM PP document flow system and replaced innogy’s in-house application for managing field crews with dedicated Smallworld Network Viewer extensions. Currently, we’re finalizing Smallworld EL.GIS integration with SCADA system.

Our team also implemented Network Viewer, Smallworld GeoSpatial Analysies and Smallworld GeoSpatial Server as well as delivered new Smallworld Core and Commit licenses.
