Trends in Software for Utilities

Until quite recently, electric utilities had no choice but to use separate best-of-breed solutions for their generation, transmission, distribution, and financial units. But that's all changing, as the big vendors scramble to provide them with an integrated solution that bridges the gaps between their current systems, while offering top-in-class functionality.

Customer information systems (CISs) are mission-critical cash registers for the utilities industry.
