How mobile and cloud technology can benefit utilities during disasters


In the following video, Carol Johnston, Vice President of Product and Marketing at Clevest, talks about the company’s view of disaster management for utilities.

Johnston concludes that disaster-related damage to the utility infrastructure is an increasing component of the operational budget every year. A major trend in workforce management to tackle this issue is the migration and capitalization of the cloud, she says.

Cloud benefits include speed, automation, and the ability to stay connected during major disasters.

Also, she says technological advancements for back-up storage can aid in the overwhelming amount of data that can be lost during an unexpected disaster.
