Utilities are faced with increasingly complex regulations, escalating costs, aging infrastructures, a changing workforce, security concerns and an increase in remotely operated plants. Effective and sustainable Environmental Information System solutions are imperative to face these challenges. However, these solutions can be difficult and time consuming to implement, maintain and utilize as data comes from many disparate sources and in many different formats. This information needs to be aggregated and consolidated in a logical way with good record keeping, secure access, standard operating procedures and easy correlation so it can be used at operational levels to improve communication, efficiency and effectiveness. Computerized data management systems can help address these challenges. These systems can automate the capture and storage of data, inspect and validate incoming data, provide traceable data approval procedures, provide embedded analysis tools, automatically generate reports and display the information in a variety of ways for easy interpretation and analysis.
