Authors: Roberta Bigliani, Gaia Gallotti, Jean-Fran├žois Segalotto
Abstract

This IDC Energy Insights study evaluates providers of MDM systems and applications supporting the meter-to-cash and meter-to-grid processes of EMEA utilities by leveraging the IDC MarketScape vendor assessment tool. It analyzes the vendors' quantitative and qualitative characteristics and their comparative success in the marketplace, looking at how their products and services will evolve as well as providing metrics and context to utilities evaluating potential technology partners in this application area. The evaluation is based on a comprehensive and rigorous framework that assesses vendors relative to the criteria and highlights the most influential factors for success in this market, both in the short and long term.

"The market landscape of MDM systems has reached maturity over the past few years as vendors tuned their products to the impending smart meter rollouts and evolving market regulation in Europe," said Jean-Fran├žois Segalotto, senior research analyst, IDC Energy Insights. "With meter-to-cash support now a given, vendors are focusing on enabling utilities to extract value from their advanced metering infrastructure beyond billing and use smart meters as grid sensors and tools for customer insight and engagement."
