After the formal part of the evening, Hazem Khamis, Digital Infrastructure Specialist, from Transgrid presented his talk on Asset Data/Information and the restructuring of existing systems to maximise value to an organisation . Using a Transgrid case study, Hazem shared the experiences and lessons learnt from their Asset data Transformation project. He discussed the driving philosophy, where they started, the steps taken to correct structures and data points, where they are now and the benefits realised so far from Planning, Maintenance, Analysis and Regulatory Reporting.
