Synopsis and overview of the session

As the effects of the pandemic ripple across the economy, utilities have been overwhelmed with shifts in demand whilst having to secure operations and safeguard their people. Facing many  new challenges such as disruption in supply chains, strain on workforce, evolving customer expectations and delays to projects, many are facing a wave of disruption never seen before.

However, times of change can also bring new opportunities to try new things or accelerate existing plans to adapt to the new normal. Digital Transformation has long been a catalyst to develop new business and operating models. At the same time digitalisation can open the door to new revenues and customer experiences; while driving operational efficiencies.

The question is HOW can utilities embrace digital technology and make it a core value  to deliver incremental iterative change with agility – smart solutions for the customer, employee and operations of the future! Established companies like Schneider Electric, Engie, US Gas & Electric are using new technologies, such as low-code to accelerate digital operations, create new digital experiences and build a new digital core to replace legacy systems  and stay ahead of the curve.

Focus Network, in partnership with OutSystems, will be bringing leading IT executives from across the Australian utilities sector, in a conversation as we discuss how utilities can benefit from a rapid development  platform for core transformation and digital opportunities all along the value chain.

Key takeaways:

  • Adopting a modern, low-code platform without overwhelming the business and taking too much risk
  • How to build a digital transformation velocity that is responsive to business need and external influences
  • How low-code is being used  to develop applications for remote operations, cost management, staff interactions, remote working, field services and more
