Now in its fifth year, the Meetup is once again returning to Denver to provide a two day conference for network operators across utilities and telecommunications to discuss the issues and trends affecting them and learn how their peers are overcoming their challenges. As well as customer presentations and keynotes from industry thought leaders, the Meetup provides workshops, demonstrations, insight into IQGeo's product roadmap and a whole lot of networking, refreshments and lunch will be provided throughout, including a fun packed evening of entertainment on October 16th.
A draft agenda can be downloaded here.
We are very pleased to announce our keynote presenters:
|Zouheir Mansourati, the former VP of Broadband at TELUS will talk about the key challenges facing the telecom and cable industry today.|
Stephen Kerr from PA Consulting will address technology themes in the utility industry.
More speakers will be announced over the coming weeks and the agenda will be published here soon, but to take advantage of an early bird offer, register by June 30 for just $199.

The 2018 Meetup was a great event and we received excellent feedback from our delegates.
100% of 2018 delegates said they will attend the event in 2019
Dick Rohm, from Cable ONE, said: “I think this is one of the best conferences that I attend. I get more out of this conference than I do many other expositions that I go to.”
Construction Manager™ controls construction projects from end-to-end, and keeps all stakeholders informed of project progress and ticket status, available on any mobile device. Project managers assign tickets to crews, and crews record ticket progress and status on their mobile device. You can now identify tickets putting timeline and budget at risk.
There’s been an explosion in the amount of data being collected from communications networks, as more smart network equipment and sensors are deployed, communicating real-time status, alarms and performance information.
The challenge for operations teams is that this data is locked up in many different complex application silos, making it difficult to correlate these sources to make critical operational decisions, like determining root cause for an outage, and dispatching a technician in a timely fashion. This leads to higher MTTR, repeat trouble calls, poor customer service scores (NPS) and customer churn.
myWorld for Salesforce
Many communications and utility companies use Salesforce extensively in their sales and customer service operations, and increasingly this is extending into network operations. These solutions have been very successful but lack embedded integration with network asset connectivity, location and real-time status information. This leads to delays, mistakes and poor customer service as backlogs of tasks and information requests mount up on the engineering department, taking their focus away from building new revenue generating network.
myWorld for Salesforce is now available on AppExchange.
Inspection & Survey
myWorld Inspection & Survey is a flexible software platform that enables operations teams to create, optimise and perform all required field inspections and surveys digitally. Its versatile architecture enables deployment in weeks at any utility or communications company.
myWorld Inspection & Survey transforms workers’ ability to collect inspection data by enabling them to capture information on any mobile device, eliminating paper-based processes. It delivers advanced regulatory reporting and facilitates the optimal efficiency of company-wide inspection operations.
Electric utilities are challenged by geographic distances, changing regulations, legacy systems and processes, increasing technological network complexity and the natural environment in their mission to deliver a reliable service to increasingly educated consumers. When storms or emergencies hit they need to restore power as safely, quickly and predictably as practically possible.
myWorld Damage Assessment™ is a flexible software platform that enables utilities operations teams to drive efficiencies throughout the damage assessment process during storms or emergency events. It dramatically improves overall field communication as well as the speed and quality of information collection, which has a direct positive impact on predictable restoration time and SAIDI and CAIDI performance.
myWorld Capture manages the collection of construction as-built, red-lining, and data correction details from staff and contractors in the field, submission for QA review, and feed to core engineering systems like GIS. Technicians can easily record and submit changes in the field on their mobile device and are notified when their changes have been processed. All interested parties can stay co-ordinated and keep track of status as updates move through the process.
It runs on the myWorld Platform so myWorld Capture has proven enterprise scale synch of data and application updates to keep field workers productive when offline.
myWorld enterprise platform
Unlike legacy systems with traditional centralized models, the myWorld™ platform is mobile, distributed and flexible. It’s built specifically for large scale integration with multiple geospatial and corporate business data sources.
We help you create a geo operations hub that visualizes your unique network assets, processes and IT ecosystem using our simple map-based view. Whether it’s a mobile phone or tablet used by field operations or a big screen outage board in a Network Operation Center, myWorld’s powerful insights are available to your entire team.
As the world's leading mobile geospatial software, your organization can now capture field operations information that was previously lost and make this mission-critical data accessible for rapid decision making.
myWorld Fiber Planning automatically generates a cost-optimized next-generation fiber network plan and design. The system produces a geospatial layout and Bill of Materials using mathematical optimisation based on available data sources, design standards and user inputs. myWorld Fiber Planning is easy to use and integrates with all leading GIS databases.
