Abstract: Duke Energy, provider of energy services to over 1.3 million customers throughout eastern Canada and the US, has implemented SydneyPLUS International's ASP solution.


Duke Energy, provider of energy services to over 1.3 million customers throughout eastern Canada and the US, has implemented SydneyPLUS International's ASP solution.

SydneyPLUS's ASP solution gave Duke Energy:

  • Flexible licensing, accommodating a changing corporate environment
  • The means to eliminate the time and expense associated with owning a server
  • The latest features and SQL architecture without ownership or maintenance costs
  • Optimal access to SydneyPLUS staff experience for rapid set-up and deployment

"A series of corporate reorganizations created a pretty dynamic environment for their information system," explains Phil Wensley, Account Manager for SydneyPLUS International, "They hired an independent consultant to help them survey the marketplace and find a new system, and that search lead them to SydneyPLUS."

Under the ASP model, Duke Energy data is stored and maintained at SydneyPLUS headquarters in Vancouver. Having experienced SydneyPLUS staff directly involved in all steps of the process allowed data conversion and implementation to be accomplished in a lighting-fast three-week timeframe.

As a Fortune 500 company headquartered in Charlotte N.C., Duke Energy is one of the largest natural gas and electric power companies in the United States and Canada. With nearly 37,000 megawatts of electric generating capacity in the Midwest and the Carolinas, natural gas distribution services in Ohio and Kentucky and more than 4,000 megawatts of electric power generation in Latin America, Duke Energy is an industry leader with a focus on energy distribution in the Americas.
