Accenture and Siemens Infrastructure & Cities have announced that they are collaborating on advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) and meter data management (MDM) solutions.

Under this partnership, Accenture will provide consulting, systems integration and managed services for smart meter and analytics solutions, while Siemens will leverage its eMeter EnergyIP MDM platform and corresponding professional services.

"This collaboration will ultimately lead to customized solutions that can be quickly integrated into a utility’s existing infrastructure," says Thomas Zimmermann, CEO of the Business Unit Services within the Siemens Smart Grid Division. "These solutions will help utilities operate their systems more efficiently, thus giving them an economic advantage over their competitors."

Siemens and Accenture note they are currently working with Canadian utility SaskPower to help implement AMI that will help the company provide more reliable energy and better customer service.
