TADA Service Models

Through over a decade of consulting and systems integration services to utilities worldwide using CIM standards and semantic-driven approach as the foundation, Xtensible Solutions has matured an approach that will guarantee the success of its implementation over the long term.

It is a multi-faceted and multi-tiered approach that can be tailored to each utility’s specific requirements and organizational structure.

This role helps a utility establish and deliver a consistent enterprise approach for integration and data management using applicable standards and best practices. Throughout our service engagements involving system integration or fulfilling the system integrator role, this is the approach we keep at the forefront.
