Network utilities: New ways of seeing

Organizations that can move from experimenting with discrete digital projects to fully embracing digital transformation as a new business model will succeed in becoming Optimized Network Utilities, or ONUs.

Three related ways of seeing will shape the attitudes that will enable ONUs to thrive in a utilities world buffeted by paradigm shifts. These ways of seeing will show them how a network utility can take advantage of change to bring greater value to all stakeholders, whether shareholders, suppliers, consumers or regulators.

In CGI’s vision, the ONU follows three fundamental mindsets:

  1. Embraces the bidirectional flow of energy and information
  2. Progressively rolls out technologies with clear ROI, while building knowledge and flexibility
  3. Exploits 360º control and visibility by driving end-to-end business processes enabled by automation and the integration of operational and information technologies
