Build an enterprise SaaS internally and keep it updated.

Too many SaaS companies are trying to sell to Utilities today - but the best are the ones that Utilities build themselves.

Save cloud computing costs and DevOps overheads

Utilities must save Op Ex costs through process efficiency. One way to reduce costs is to automate cloud deployments.

Maintain knowledge base across teams

Utilities work across many teams. Teams and team members get re-org'd, or they change jobs. Utilities lose a lot of intellectual capital in the process. Let's stop that .. yesterday!

Cybersecure, managed access to external data and AI/ML resources

Utilities need a trusted access to safely reap the benefits of OpenADR, GridLAB-D, OpenDSS and plethora of excellent AI/ML open source libraries out there.
