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.
