CGI launches its DCC Adapter Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platformLondon, United Kingdom, 02 November 2020 - CGI has announced the launch of its DCC Adapter SaaS platform enabling Data Communications Company (DCC) users to receive a high performance, turn-key, out-of-the-box solution for integrating with the DCC, reducing cost and risk, and increasing security assurance.
The national roll-out of smart meters is well underway. The Data Communications Company (DCC) has made significant progress with the government’s roll-out of 53 million smart meters to more than 30 million domestic and small business premises since the start of the roll-out in 2016.
Consumers and market participants are already reaping the benefits of second-generation (SMETS2) smart meters, with millions now installed. The DCC has also triggered the enrolment and adoption of first-generation (SMETS1) smart meters onto its secure network, enabling millions of consumers to regain smart functionality and stay smart even if they decide to switch energy supplier.
The focus of market participants now shifts to ensuring their IT systems can operate at scale, refreshing their smart architecture if necessary, reducing cost-to-serve, and using the data from smart meters to provide innovative products and services to consumers.
