For the fourth year in a row, Siemens has been positioned to the far right in the Leaders quadrant in its 2017 Magic Quadrant for Meter Data Management (MDM) Products for its MDM product, Siemens EnergyIP.

Mike Carlson, president of Siemens Digital Grid, North America, said: “We believe this recognition by Gartner for the fourth straight year in the Leaders quadrant of this Magic Quadrant is a clear indication of our ability to evolve our meter data management technology with this ever-changing energy marketplace.

“With nearly 75 million smart devices under contract globally, we will continue to invest in and develop robust metering technologies that support advanced metering infrastructures and help our customers remain agile in an increasingly digitalised landscape.”
