Power growth and customer care with “smart” IT

Post deregulation, the energy industry continues to be the Wild West of risk and reward. Traditional power companies must transform legacy systems to keep up with the flood of digital data coming from “smart meters” and other network devices, and connect that usage data to online billing and CRM that’s secure and highly available. New energy retailers also need responsive digital marketing and billing to capture new commercial and residential customers. Alternative energy start-ups – from solar energy providers to the makers of inverters, panels, fuel cells, or car chargers – need effortless background IT so owners and officers can stay focused on core innovation and investment.
