At Southern California Edison (SCE) ITS Informationstechnik Service GmbH (ITS) was subcontracted by General Electric (GE) to implement the integration of SAP PM with the Smallworld GIS. The main part of the backend integration is the synchronization of asset data updates from SAP to the GIS. The connectivity of substations on the circuit level is synchronized in the opposite direction from GIS to SAP. Some of this information is also sent to a third system via SAP PI.

SCE is one of the largest electric utilities in U.S., serving more than 14 million people in a 50,000 square-mile area in Central, Coastal and Southern California, excluding the City of Los Angeles and certain other cities. One of SCE's key projects in 2009/2010 was the improvement of their business processes with the implementation of SAP PM for the maintenance of SCE's assets. Formerly DPIS was the system of record for substations, circuits and their connectivity hierarchy, and this system was to be decommissioned after the rollout of SAP PM.
