Case Study: Effective and Efficient Power Grid Management
PacifiCorp’s Energy Management System (EMS) controls the company’s entire power grid, and must be monitored 24-7 to maintain an uninterrupted flow of energy throughout PacifiCorp’s service area. PacifiCorp needed an effective warning system to alert it to events before they become problematic. Unnoticed events that lead to failures within the system could result in power outages across broad areas, affecting residents, businesses, and local government.
“With IT Foundation Management, we can manage the entire (EMS) system across multiple states from a single screen at a single location, and we know instantly if there is a problem.”Ed Lim, IT Unix Specialist
Case Study: Delivering Secure, Compliant, and Reliable Service with IT Foundation Management
The strain of timely compliance places an ever-increasing burden on most energy providers. The sheer volume of reporting required by state and federal agencies often absorbs resources desperately needed for other functions within a utility company. In addition, penalties associated with noncompliance are steep. Fortunately, this state-wide electric company found a robust solution that dramatically reduces the burden of regulatory compliance and documentation.
