The central challenge in the implementation of smart districts is the integration of new technologies into existing business processes and their synchronization, and to ensure compliance with the required security standards.
As a rule, organically developed infrastructures must be intelligently exploited as well as redeveloped and digitized in several stages. This requires soft- and hardware that can be flexibly scaled and expanded.
A central database as a single source of truth (SSOT) is elementary for the implementation of these goals, enabling efficient meter/sensor-to-cash processes.
The smart districts of the future are facing the following challenges:
- Energy management
- Customer acceptance
- Coupling of sectors
