Itron Launches IEE Cloud

Itron Launches Cloud Computing Platform, Taking Utilities to Next Level of Meter Data Management

IEE Cloud lowers the total cost of ownership and eases the utility’s IT burden. 

Itron, which is innovating new ways for utilities and cities to manage energy and water, debuted Itron Enterprise Edition (IEE) Cloud, an enterprise-grade, cloud-exclusive, Meter Data Management (MDM) platform developed to meet the dynamic needs of today’s utilities on their journey toward digitalisation. 

Don Reeves, senior vice president of Outcomes at Itron, said, “Cloud technology is foundational for the energy transition. With distributed energy resources on the rise, it is critical that utilities have the ability to manage that data and support DERs with improved efficiencies. With on-premise systems, the software often doesn’t evolve at the same pace as the industry. This can cause lag in capabilities, reducing the benefits to the utility. We are thrilled to launch IEE Cloud solution to help support the evolving needs of today’s utilities for enterprise data collection, management, and enhanced analytics.”

IEE Cloud, which is available on Microsoft Azure and other cloud platforms, not only lowers total cost of ownership, it also eases the utility’s IT burden and provides enhanced visibility into operations. IEE Cloud provides flexibility for utilities to customise their business processes seamlessly, eliminating the need for constant maintenance. 

Utilising IEE Cloud can increase utility companies’ agility by allowing them to easily integrate with new capabilities, such as revenue assurance and transformer load management. IEE Cloud allows the utility to adapt to the evolving industry, which is faced with increased grid complexity driven by the energy transition, extreme weather and increased consumer demand.
