Utilities are facing an unprecedented set of challenges due to the combined impacts of declining demand growth and customer alternatives for self supply on offer. While these challenges are real, they need not be the death knell for the industry. Yes, there will be significant changes in the years to come(this has started in California and New York),but the entire country will not shift at the same pace. This is the time to think strategically and tactically about what the introduction of these resources means and to ensure that strategic and tactical responses are aligned in a cohesive course of action. The companies that get this right will be here to talk about the experience; those that do not may well be reading the “Chronicle of a Death Foretold."

The demands on IT today are staggering. Most organizations depend on their data to drive everything from product development and sales to communications, operations, and innovation. As a result, IT departments are charged with finding a way to bring new applications online quickly, accommodate massive data growth and complex data analysis, and make data available 24 hours a day, around the world, on any device. The traditional way to deliver data services is with separate infrastructure silos for various applications, processes, and locations, resulting in continually escalating costs for infrastructure and management. These infrastructure silos make it difficult to respond quickly to business opportunities and threats, cause productivity-hindering delays when you need to scale, and drive up operational costs.
