Successful electricity distribution business requires management of a
wide variety of data. Long-term planning, construction, and operation
of networks as well as customer services are all based on analysis of
different kinds of data. Future trends of distributed generation and
electrification of transportation raise expectations of having more
information available in planning and operation of electricity

Traditionally, the amount of data used by
Distribution System Operators (DSO) has been limited. However, the
amount of both internal and external data has increased rapidly in the
past decade because of smart meters and other measuring devices
installed in the grid. Smart grids produce large amounts of data but
also require significant amounts of external data to operate
efficiently. External data can also be widely exploited in the network
planning process, for instance by providing a significant resource for
estimating the impacts of future trends. Therefore, it is increasingly
important to make use of open data resources and recognize their value
for the DSOs in their processes. However, businesses have not yet made
use of the potential of open data to the fullest despite of the
significant value they could bring.

This paper describes how to
enhance distribution system asset managment by incorporating novel data
sources into different stages of grid development and operation
