Telvent, a real-time IT solutions and information provider for a sustainable world, has partnered with Esri CIS in Russia to provide smart grid solutions for the country's energy industry. Under this new partnership, Esri CIS' 3,000 clients will have access to Telvent solutions to support their transition to a smart grid and provide a more reliable and efficient infrastructure network.

Esri clients will harness the power of Telvent's ArcFM Enterprise GIS tool, an extension of Esri's ArcGIS platform. With ArcFM, customers will have a graphical, data-rich display of real-time happenings on the electrical grid, allowing them to respond more quickly and efficiently to outages and maintenance issues. Customers also will have a more informed understanding of critical functions such as dispatching, planning, reporting and analysis. This will serve as the foundation for an intelligent network infrastructure that improves efficiencies, increases safety and enables smarter business decisions.
