Utility Experts TMG Consulting and RIM Solutions Expose a New Generation of CIS Replacement Risks and How to Mitigate Them

Atlanta, GA, August 12, 2015 --(PR.com)-- Utility industry experts, RIM Solutions and TMG Consulting, have partnered to develop research into the greatest risk factors associated with CIS replacement for utilities. The pending report, Utility CIS Replacement: A Comprehensive Look at the New Age of Risk Mitigation, will first be made available to attendees at Electric Utility Consultants, Inc.’s (EUCI’s) 5th Annual CIS conference in New Orleans, La., August 25-26, 2015.

The upcoming research paper will be the first installment of a four-part series. The August 2015 report will focus on the planning phase of CIS replacement, while Parts Two, Three and Four will uncover roadblocks associated with procurement, implementation and stabilization.

To be part of the data reveal, join the conference presentation on August 25—CIS Replacement: A Comprehensive Look at the New Age of Risk Mitigation through the Eyes of Dakota Electric. The engaging session, led by CIS and Billing Manager at Dakota Electric, Sherie Wutschke, and Vanessa Edmonds, CEO at RIM Solutions, will include actionable insights to help utilities side-step common pitfalls occurring in CIS projects today.

Research sponsor, Mario Bauer, CEO of TMG Consulting, said, “Whether a utility is ready to replace its system today or three years down the road, early and careful planning to avoid landmines is the best path to delivering a successful project.”

Utility professionals who would like to participate in the research, can do so by completing a five-minute online survey: http://www.tmgconsulting.com/cis-form.Survey respondents will receive advanced copies of the report and will also be entered to win a GoPro video camera valued at $299.
