Utilities are looking to technology to solve an extraordinary challenge: how to insure the future of a reliable public power supply in the face of major and very difficult issues; among them, increased demand that is taxing the capacity of existing plants; environmental, political and other pressures that inhibit the building of new plants; an aging workforce; an uncertain fuel supply and increased costs for fuel; and so on.
Knowledge 2007 will help expose key topics and answer some of the most important questions, such us:
-How other utilities are moving towards the Intelligent Enterprise, the problems they face, and the solutions they’re employing.
-Which paths are working, which are not?
-Inside views of the future of regulatory and political developments.
-Where three key vendors (SAP, Oracle, and IBM) are headed and how they see the industry – including the ability to ask these vendors tough questions and get straight answers without product hype.
-CIO Roundtables and Workshops are strictly off the record: no recordings, media, vendors or lower level IT staff.
