American Electric Power (AEP) Selects Enviance for Title V and Greenhouse Gas Reporting

CARLSBAD, Calif., June 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Enviance, the leading provider of Internet-based, on demand systems for the management of environmental, health and safety (EHS) compliance activities, today announced that American Electric Power , one of the largest electric utilities in the United States, selected Enviance as its system of record for Title V compliance and greenhouse gas reporting and inventory management.

Located in Columbus, Ohio, AEP owns or operates more than 36,000 megawatts of coal, natural gas, nuclear, and renewable fueled generating capacity. As one of the largest generators of electricity in the United States, AEP is committed to ensuring its power plants are in compliance with federal, state and local air regulations for SO2, NOx and particulates, and to reducing greenhouse gas emissions including carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrous oxide (N2O), methane (CH4), and sulfur hexafluoride (SF6).

As a leader in national efforts to address Green House Gas issues, AEP voluntarily participates in programs such as the Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX), Department of Energy's Climate Challenge (1605b), and Environmental Protection Agency's Climate Leaders -- each having its own compliance reporting requirements. After extensive study of market alternatives, AEP selected the Enviance System to reduce the cost and time associated with tracking, analysis and reporting of the thousands of daily data points associated with Title V air compliance and Green House Gas monitoring and reporting.

Using web services, Enviance integrated the Enviance System with AEP's Continuous Emissions Monitoring Systems (CEMS), Opacity Monitoring Systems (COMS), and the company's custom enterprise application for fuel loading management. This integration with multiple enterprise systems has created a seamless flow of process data into the Enviance System and allows AEP to monitor, report, and analyze its air and green house gas emissions from their dispersed facilities in an efficient, cost effective and centralized way.

"AEP has placed reduction of greenhouse gas high on its agenda, made it plain that the issue is very important to shareholder value, and has eagerly taken a leadership position in the effort to solve global warming issues. Given the obvious importance of these issues to its shareholder value, we are honored that AEP has embraced the Enviance System as its centralized greenhouse gas tracking and reporting system of record," said Lawrence Goldenhersh, President and CEO of Enviance.

"AEP stands as a sterling example of the eagerness with which multi-billion dollar corporations are embracing Software as a Service solutions to address issues that are critical to shareholder value. With its deployment of web services to integrate Enviance with various core, behind-the-firewall, enterprise software systems, AEP is also a sterling example of how large corporations leverage their investment in existing enterprise software by reusing the data through Internet-driven integration," Goldenhersh continued.

Of course releases are always really popular, particularly when they fit requests we had from the community.
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

Here’s a novel, but controversial statement, “it’s time for the CEO, COO, CIO to start to take joint responsibility for application platform decisions.” For too many years now technical meritocracy has led the decision-making for the business with regard to platform selection. This includes, but is not limited to, servers, operating systems, virtualization, cloud and application platforms. In many of these cases the decision has not worked in favor of the business with regard to agility and cost...
Buzzword alert: Microservices and IoT at a DevOps conference? What could possibly go wrong? In this Power Panel at DevOps Summit, moderated by Jason Bloomberg, the leading expert on architecting agility for the enterprise and president of Intellyx, panelists peeled away the buzz and discuss the important architectural principles behind implementing IoT solutions for the enterprise. As remote IoT devices and sensors become increasingly intelligent, they become part of our distributed cloud enviro...
Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and containers together help companies achieve their business goals faster and more effectively. In his session at DevOps Summit, Ruslan Synytsky, CEO and Co-founder of Jelastic, reviewed the current landscape of Dev...
DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.
"Plutora provides release and testing environment capabilities to the enterprise," explained Dalibor Siroky, Director and Co-founder of Plutora, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @DevOpsSummit, held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City.
Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, ...

He will introduce the use of NXTmonitor, a next-generation DevOps tool that captures application environments, dependencies and start/stop procedures in a portable configuration file with an easy-to-use GUI. In addition to captur...
Docker containers have brought great opportunities to shorten the deployment process through continuous integration and the delivery of applications and microservices. This applies equally to enterprise data centers as well as the cloud. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Jari Kolehmainen, founder and CTO of Kontena, will discuss solutions and benefits of a deeply integrated deployment pipeline using technologies such as container management platforms, Docker containers, and the drone.io Cl tool...
We call it DevOps but much of the time there’s a lot more discussion about the needs and concerns of developers than there is about other groups. There’s a focus on improved and less isolated developer workflows. There are many discussions around collaboration, continuous integration and delivery, issue tracking, source code control, code review, IDEs, and xPaaS – and all the tools that enable those things. Changes in developer practices may come up – such as developers taking ownership of code ...
"We provide DevOps solutions. We also partner with some key players in the DevOps space and we use the technology that we partner with to engineer custom solutions for different organizations," stated Himanshu Chhetri, CTO of Addteq, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at DevOps at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

I’m told that it has been 21 years since Scrum became public when Jeff Sutherland and I presented it at an Object-Oriented Programming, Systems, Languages & Applications (OOPSLA) workshop in Austin, TX, in October of 1995. Time sure does fly. Things mature. I’m still in the same building and at the same company where I first formulated Scrum.[1] Initially nobody knew of Scrum, yet it is now an open source body of knowledge translated into more than 30 languages[2] People use Scrum worldwide for ...
Thanks to Docker, it becomes very easy to leverage containers to build, ship, and run any Linux application on any kind of infrastructure. Docker is particularly helpful for microservice architectures because their successful implementation relies on a fast, efficient deployment mechanism – which is precisely one of the features of Docker. Microservice architectures are therefore becoming more popular, and are increasingly seen as an interesting option even for smaller projects, instead of being...
As the race for the presidency heats up, IT leaders would do well to recall the famous catchphrase from Bill Clinton’s successful 1992 campaign against George H. W. Bush: “It’s the economy, stupid.” That catchphrase is important, because IT economics are important. Especially when it comes to cloud. Application performance management (APM) for the cloud may turn out to be as much about those economics as it is about customer experience.
