Hartigen Solutions Releases PowerOptix™ Next Generation Independent System Operator and Regional Transmission Organization (ISO/RTO) Transaction Management System

Hartigen Solutions, LLC, has announced that Tenaska Power Services Co. (TPS) has implemented PowerOptix™ to manage transactions in the Midwest Independent System Operator (MISO) market. TPS plans to roll out PowerOptix™ to manage transactions in other markets starting January 2013.

PowerOptix is built on Hartigen’s LS-Evolution™ rapid application development platform that provides complete separation of core architectural components and business functionality. As a result, new functionality can be delivered immediately, without the traditional months or sometimes years of design iterations that are typical with other solutions.

TPS specializes in physical power marketing and electric asset management for utilities and non-utility generators. A Dallas-based affiliate of energy company Tenaska, TPS is one of the largest marketers of physical power in the United States.

“We selected PowerOptix™ to replace one of the leading third-party solutions because it offers a lower cost of ownership, a cleaner and more intuitive user interface, a newer technology stack and, probably most importantly, its open architecture. The Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) allows us to easily mold the platform into our current customer-centric processes,” said Michael Bohan, TPS Senior Director of Strategic Technology.

Jeremy Carpenter, TPS Vice President of Asset Management and Operations, said, “The Hartigen team worked well with our resources to streamline the transition to PowerOptix and provided great support.”

“Many ISO/RTO market participants struggle with their legacy ISO transaction management systems’ overall cost of ownership including maintenance, infrastructure, and people, as well as critical performance and reliability issues,” noted Hartigen Solutions’ President David Potts. “PowerOptix successfully puts these concerns to rest.”

PowerOptix™ is deployed on a single platform with a centralized data model/mart for all ISOs/RTOs. The application can be delivered on premises or as a secure Software as a Service (SaaS.)
