Microsoft’s worldwide power and utilities team is geared up for DistribuTECH 2013, where we are joining partners to demonstrate the latest and greatest technology for the utilities industry.

The utilities industry is going through significant change. Workers are increasingly influencing the technology they use at work at a time when managing devices and corporate data is more critical than ever. Companies
have access to more data than ever, but leveraging that “Big Data” deluge requires new tools to leverage the information to drive business results. Meanwhile, frequently changing regulations, which vary among utility markets, add strain to operations.

These conditions create challenges, but they also provide opportunities for service providers to transform themselves and reach new levels of success. Microsoft is committed to solutions which empower utilities across the entire utility value chain. Together with our partners, Microsoft offers information technology solutions to address operational requirements common to all utilities around the world.
