The Situation Today
Until now, utility companies were encumbered to acquire, build, host and maintain assets such as the data center, servers, and critical applications, as well as expand service capabilities such as security, collections, HR, and call center operations. Cloud Computing aggregates enough cost savings and benefits to enable utilities to build the business case to divest these IT assets and capabilities and focus on growth, reliability and innovation.
