“Today we are presenting the benefits of ABB’s acquisition of Ventyx, and subsequent acquisitions of Insert Key Solutions (IKS) and Obvient Strategies,” said Anders Sjoelin, manager for ABB’s Power Systems division in North America. “Combining ABB and Ventyx created a deep source of industry solutions for both enterprise information technology and power systems, bridging the gap between operations and IT platforms. The addition of advanced equipment reliability and business intelligence tools to the portfolio further affirms ABB’s position as the premier solution provider for optimal management of physical and human assets in power utilities.”

Included in today’s presentations are the following: 

• Business intelligence for the smart grid – FocalPoint Suite business intelligence (BI) tools integrated with Network ManagerTM distribution management system (DMS) and Service Suite mobile workforce management software, enables utilities to more effectively monitor and manage their distributed assets on a real-time, near-real-time and event-driven basis.
