HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Hartigen Solutions, LLC has announced that The Energy Authority (TEA) has deployed Hartigen PowerOptix™ to manage settlement transactions and market data for participation in the California Independent System Operator (CAISO).
“This minimizes the barrier of entering new markets or replacing existing solutions, and allows the business to focus on executing in the marketplace while Hartigen keeps the application operating smoothly and reliably.”
After evaluating several solutions in the marketplace, TEA selected PowerOptixTM for the solution’s innovative user experience, open architecture, superior application performance, SaaS deployment capability, and customer service.
“TEA needed a robust solution that could be deployed quickly and didn’t require significant internal resources to implement and support the application,” said Bill Clarke, TEA’s Executive Director, RTO Market Services & Analytics. “Hartigen was able to successfully deploy PowerOptixTM SaaS in less than four weeks, and it has been working smoothly since go live.”
TEA’s CIO, Tom Harvey, said “The Hartigen team delivers an exceptional level of market knowledge, customer service, and technology capability. TEA is excited about our partnership with Hartigen as we continue to grow and expand our business to serve our owners and members.”
PowerOptixTM is built on Hartigen’s LS-Evolution™ rapid application development platform that provides complete separation of core architectural components and business functionality. As a result, new functionality can be delivered immediately, without the traditional months or sometimes years of design iterations that are typical with other solutions.
“The ability to deploy PowerOptixTM quickly and efficiently via our SaaS model is a key differentiator for Hartigen,” noted Daryl Cote, Hartigen’s Director of Services, “This minimizes the barrier of entering new markets or replacing existing solutions, and allows the business to focus on executing in the marketplace while Hartigen keeps the application operating smoothly and reliably.”
The PowerOptixTM platform is a centralized repository for all ISO/RTO markets. Customers have the option to choose transitional on-premise implementation or SaaS deployment.
