Southern Company is one of the largest electricity producers in the US, with nearly 39,000 megawatts of capacity supporting 4.1 million customers across 120,000 square miles of the southeastern US. The $11.9 billion company wanted to consolidate workflow and document management across three nuclear power plants in order to streamline operations while reducing costs.

Challenges

  • Integrate data from three outdated mainframes into a multi-plant solution
  • Ensure compliance with rigorous nuclear power regulations
  • Mitigate risks of data migration while maximizing potential ROI
From extracting, cleansing, and translating our data to helping us control costs, reduce risk, and simplify an inherently complex project, PowerCenter did everything we needed to do.
