In today's ever-changing business environment, companies in the energy and utility industry are under increasing pressure to streamline their processes, reduce costs and improve customer service with fewer resources. To satisfy these demands while remaining competitive, companies need a better way to manage multiple tools and business processes — as well as the thousands of documents, drawings, and related content created from digital home meters to turbines in the plants to distribution grids.
The need to manage sensitive information for legal or compliance reasons is also increasing. Businesses require compliant solutions to efficiently access data; safely transmit, store, and retrieve it; uncover vulnerabilities and pinpoint fraud. They face significant business risk and fines should they lose or mishandle sensitive information, or should their data be exploited by attackers with malicious intent.

What is the
The utilities industry consists of companies engaged in the generation, transmission, and distribution of electric power, natural gas, steam supply, water, and sewage, among others. Each of the various segments within the utilities sector is distinctly different. For proper functioning of the utilities industry, compliance with regulatory and reporting requirements is necessary. Regulation helps improve performance and increases operational efficiency, but regulation is a challenge for the utilities industry. Other challenges include management of financial risk, consolidation, and securing supply.
