Today's utilities face the challenges of tighter IT budgets, reduced in-house development staff,and the need to quickly deliver business benefits through applications. Utilities also need to adapt to the rapid changes in smart grid technology, the electricity distribution system of the future.
Telvent and Microsoft are working together to provide integrated solutions that can help utilities meet these challenges and better use their distribution assets for maintenance and growth. By working together to integrate key aspects of their solutions-including Telvent ArcFM Solution-Microsoft SQL Server, and Windows Server-Telvent and Microsoft address the most pressing needs of the smart grid age, including performance metrics, response times, and security.
In May and June 2011, Telvent, a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, joined with Microsoft to conduct a series of benchmarking tests to verify the performance and scalability of ArcFM Solution 10.0.1 SP1, which included testing on two core elements - ArcFM and Responder, running on SQL Server 2008 R2 Enterprise and Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise. The results of the benchmark testing were impressive.
This webcast will detail the results of the benchmark testing as well as provide industry insights to help utility customers understand the value they can derive from Telvent and Microsoft's solutions both today and in the future.
