Q: SIS has over 20 years of global experience in developing digital business solutions in the Utilities sector. Can you describe how the partnership between SIS and ADI started?

Q: We have worked together on our collaborative AI projects in power. Could you elaborate on what the partnership is about and SIS’ role in it?

Joe: This partnership enables us to bring “real value” by targeting known business pain points faced by utilities globally. SIS’s key focus is on delivering digital transformation for the utility industry and we complement it nicely with ADI by integrating into their AI models and presenting the analytical outcome in a meaningful user interface thus enhancing the overall customer experience.

Q: As a digital solutions provider, what is the advice to utility companies seeking to adopt AI in their operations?

Joe: Utility companies are generally less progressive and technologically behind the curve compared to companies in the Finance and High-Tech industries. Our advice to them is to put on their design and analytical thinking hat, be bold, think out of the box, and look beyond their standard product offering.
