Cloud Technology & Strategy

Solution Overview

Cloud technology deployments at utilities are still relatively new and in the early adaption phase for Operational Technologies (OT) and Information Technologies (IT).

The acceptance of cloud for OT and IT in the utility industry is tempered by several considerations, including security, perception of reliability, capital vs. expense cost management, and stakeholders’ comfort level using cloud technologies for mission-critical applications. Utilicast can help you determine your cloud technology strategy and approach to achieve effective cloud technology utilization to support OT, and IT functions.

Utilicast can assist you with planning secure, reliable, manageable, and cost-effective cloud usage in Software as a Server (SaaS), Platform as Service (PaaS), and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offerings.
