Alstom Grid and Capgemini, a provider of consulting, technology and outsourcing services, have signed a global alliance agreement to pursue joint commercial opportunities for their combined smart grid solutions.

Together, the two companies will launch a real-time, cloud-based integrated distribution management system (IDMS) and a new cloud-based demand response management system (DRMS). Built on Alstom's e-terra 3.0 network management software platform, the services will provide real-time distribution and demand response system management from a cloud environment, according to the companies.

"We want distribution utilities and their customers to benefit from our advanced smart grid applications in an easier and more cost-effective way, based on the latest private cloud-based solutions from Capgemini," comments Karim El Naggar, vice president of network management systems at Alstom Grid.
