Utility Outage Management System Spending is Expected to Total Nearly $11.8 Billion from 2014 to 2023, According to Navigant Research

BOULDER, Colo.–([1])–A recent report from Navigant
[2] analyzes the global market opportunities for outage
management systems (OMSs), including global market forecasts for
spending, segmented by category and region, through 2023.

Historically, OMSs have been configured to respond to signals that
indicate outages, manage restoration, and communicate outage
information. However, with much larger amounts of data available from
modern smart grid technologies, today’s OMSs are becoming more complex
and robust, incorporating more features to better prevent outages and
restore power more efficiently. Click

[3] According to a recent report from Navigant Research,
global utility OMS spending is expected to total nearly $11.8 billion
from 2014 to 2023.

“As the grid has become smarter and more connected, utilities and
vendors have recognized several issues with legacy OMS systems, which is
driving change in the technology,” says Lauren Callaway, research
analyst with Navigant Research. “These innovations focus on integrating
real-time information reporting, big data analytics, the cellular
connectivity of work crews, and the growing effort to mesh engineering
and operations IT systems with operational technology (OT).”

Because today’s OMSs need to be able to handle more data and restore
power faster, vendors have created combined systems that also
incorporate distribution management systems and supervisory control and
data acquisition functionality. According to the report, these
integrated systems, known as advanced distribution management systems
(ADMSs), are expected to erode sales of standalone OMSs over the
forecast period, particularly in North America and Europe.

The report, “Outage
Management Systems,”
[4] analyzes the global market opportunities for
OMSs. It provides an assessment of the current market drivers and
challenges, regional trends, technologies, and business segments related
to OMSs. Global market forecasts for spending, segmented by category
(software purchases and upgrades, software maintenance fees, services,
and analytics) and region, extend through 2023. The report also profiles
key industry players and examines several utilities that have upgraded
their OMSs to align with more ambitious smart grid initiatives and
aggressive regulatory policies. An Executive Summary of the report is
