CIMvian Integration Modeling Tool
CIM adoption is on the rise, so energy and utility IT leaders should prepare. The Common Information Model (CIM) is an international standard used for the integration of IT systems within the electric utility industry. Activities have been aimed at creating common standards across energy domains, resulting in data models, common vocabulary and business processes.
