The Utilities Standards are the result of years of international academic research and industry expert consensus on repeatable patterns that can be reused and replicated. The Utilities Standards are packaged as ‘Reference Content’, and is both agnostic and vendor neutral. They have been specifically designed and customized to fit the mechanics of the Utilities industry, and is therefore easily implementable by any organization that operates within this particular industry, both large and small, regardless of its various frameworks, methods, approaches, products, services and activities.
The Utilities Standards are developed in the following ways:
- Research and analyze what works – again and again (Best Practices) – and discover the unique aspects applied by leading organizations (Leading Practices).
- Identify common and repeatable patterns which provide the basis for the Industry Standards.
- Develop ‘Reference Content’ that increase the level of reusability and replication within the disciplines of Enterprise Modelling, Enterprise Engineering and Enterprise Architecture for the Utilities industry.
- Extend with industry-specific performance and value accelerators with unique aspects from the identified Best Practices and Leading Practices.
The Utilities Standards consist of 3 different ‘Reference Content’ areas that are fully integrated with other frameworks, methods and approaches, such as TOGAF, META, FEAF, etc. This ensures full integration and standardization when applying the reference content into your organization, programs and/or projects, thereby having the ability to use our reference content across topics like strategy, capabilities, roles, and process, service and value aspects and technology as well as operational execution between them, creating a cross link throughout the Business, Information, and Technology layers.
