Smart Utility Systems Announces the Release of SUS Smart Energy Retail-Lite at DistribuTECH 2013

Smart Utility Systems (SUS), a global leader in products, solutions and services that accelerate return on smart grid investments for the energy and utility sector, today announced the launch of SUS Smart Energy Retail-Lite, a hosted solution for handling all aspects of energy trading and risk management for the retail sector. The cloud-based solution will be formally launched at DistribuTECH 2013, the upcoming industry conference at San Diego (January 29 – 31, 2013).

Competitive retail markets are characterized by complex, multi-party transactions to supply consumers and it is essential for suppliers in these markets to have access to relevant market and consumer information. SUS Smart Energy Retail-Lite is oriented towards these markets - it has the ability to interact and process retail business requirements and integrate them with the wholesale energy supply platform.

A cloud-based, secure integrated solution, SUS Smart Energy Retail-Lite handles all the key aspects of Energy Trading and Risk Management in the context of distributing power to retail customers. As a completely hosted solution, it eliminates the need for any IT resources, hardware or software from the customer. Retail-Lite has the added flexibility of being deployed on-premise should that be a customer preference.

SUS Smart Energy Retail-Lite meets a long-felt industry need. While many retail gas or power providers have attempted to force-fit many of their requirements into vendor-supplied ETRM systems, most of these systems lack key areas of functionality and ultimately necessitate the use of additional systems or custom developed functionality.

“SUS Smart Energy Retail-Lite is one of the few vendor-supported systems that can provide the explicit capabilities to directly bridge the wholesale supply and retail portfolio divide for both natural gas and electricity retail applications,” says G Satish, Senior Vice President at SUS. “SUS Smart Energy Retail-Lite provides retail energy providers a systematic approach to reducing the number and complexity of systems required to manage their business and reduce their dependence on spreadsheets for a number of critical processes.”

Retail energy is typically a low margin business because of competitive pressures. To maintain lean operations, contain costs and streamline processes with a tighter management control, a software solution focused only on solving retail energy issues related to trading & risk management, forecasting, billing and CRM is required and SUS Smart Energy Retail-Lite meets that need.

SUS is formally launching SUS Smart Energy Retail-Lite at DistribuTECH 2013, the leading industry conference to be held at San Diego. Retail-Lite is also featured in the SmartEd educational series to be held at DistribuTECH at the SUS booth #829. More information about SmartEd is available here.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...

Large industrial manufacturing organizations are adopting the agile principles of cloud software companies. The industrial manufacturing development process has not scaled over time.

As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
