  • Transform how your assets perform 

    Asset Management  
    Combining technical solutions with asset performance best practices, CGI OpenGrid Asset improves and optimizes asset management by centralizing the complex analytics and insight from data to transform how asset information is collected and analyzed to deliver optimal performance. Its flexible and streamlined approach uses real-time performance data and predictive models to guide your asset management decisions that drive measurable improvements to daily operations and long-term capital planning.

    Asset Investment Planning
    Maintaining your current assets, building new infrastructure due to rising demand, or managing regulatory requirements are just some of the variables to consider when evaluating your asset strategies for long-term financial optimization. CGI OpenGrid Asset incorporates advanced Asset Investment Planning (AIP) to predict, propose, and prioritize your asset maintenance, management, and investment decisions. It ensures that your maintenance, repair, and replacement decisions are grounded on actual asset conditions and the criticality to your operations. 

    Redefine operational confidence for your asset-intensive operations 
    Lapses in operating and maintaining assets can bring about expensive repairs, reliability issues, shortened asset life, and possibly substantial regulatory compliance fines. Through digitization and prioritization, CGI OpenGrid Asset provides an immediate boost in operational performance optimization, aligning business processes with compliance standards such as ISO 55000, PAS 55, and Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) strategies.

    Proactively reducing costs and risk through improved communications, automation, and performance, CGI OpenGrid Asset will deliver optimal workflows based on the criticality and health of your assets and infrastructure.

  • CGI OpenGrid Network
    Strengthen the outage response and network management process with situational awareness, control, and tracking of end-to-end service restoration efforts for power grid operations....

  • Improve grid reliability from initial detection to full restoration

    With an uptick in severity of storm events, coupled with the need to modernize the grid to strengthen network reliability and safety, flexible modeling capabilities and high-performance incident grouping and analysis are essential to enhancing power distribution operations.  

    CGI OpenGrid Network is a fully integrated network management solution designed to help utilities automate and optimize the outage restoration lifecycle—from initial detection to full restoration. Our digital solution strengthens your outage response and network management process with a real-time critical visibility and control for managing large-scale, high-volume outage events.  Driven by a sophisticated and transparent connectivity model, it provides intelligent analysis of outage call details, incident information, and telemetry data to help you with critical decision-making and resource allocation for emergencies and everyday operations.  

    Advanced automation optimizes the management, preparation, simulation, and validation of complex switch plans, including supporting objects such as tags, permits, safety documents, and planned interruption notifications.  Network management operations can be recorded against as-built or as-is versions of the electric network based on topology imported from geospatial systems (GIS) and supplemented by real-time data from Supervisory Control & Acquisition (SCADA/EMS) or Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) systems.

    Optimize your outage response and restoration ahead of the storm.
    As utilities move from operational to tactical to strategic planning, CGI OpenGrid Network becomes a critical component of its core operations in order to deliver the needed connectivity between its customer-, network-, and organization-centric business objectives.
