Karim Al-Khafaji quote on IQGeo IQ industry chat

Techniques they were using in the past just aren't really keeping pace, and I think that's made a lot of utilities focus and think about how they need to update those operations, and really take advantage of some of the digitization and data driven approaches that are permeating other parts of the utility business.
