Aligne For Utilities
Today energy utilities face unprecedented regulatory and competitive pressure. Your environment is characterized by restructuring and accelerating rates of change. Privatization has unleashed competition across national and state boundaries and markets. Liberalization and deregulation are driving consolidation and the rise of global brands. Requirements to reduce emissions dictate investments in new technologies and renewable energy as well as participation in carbon markets.
To deal with these challenges, power and gas utilities must become more agile. This requires automation to streamline processes, more real-time information with aggregated and timely access for decision-making, and integration across business processes to provide better controls. The need for efficiency, control and the agility to support growth make straight-through processing a necessity. SunGard’s Aligne provides the transaction backbone, reporting and decision support tools to help utilities meet these challenges.
