A large Midwest retail power and gas company needed a way to monitor and analyze the health of power generation units for the executive level and plant management.
Our client replaced two internally developed trade entry systems that were used by wholesale power and natural gas traders.
Our client viewed a web dashboard that displayed real time readings of transmission and generation information on a public website. The information was presented graphically to the user through dials and linear gauges.
Our client did not have an operational user-friendly Business Intelligence tool. Two years earlier they had attempted to install SAP Business Objects incorporating Active Directory with Single Sign On. Without a viable tool, users were only given the option to work with BEx queries in a limited portal and without flexibility.
Our client had recently started participating in MISO South having previously been participating in Entergy pre-merger. Since joining MISO South, Unit Commitment and Economic Dispatch were producing less than optimal results.
