RT 6.0

Today we announced the release of RT 6.0, the latest version of our Real-Time Smart Grid Platform. This is exciting for all of the usual reasons that a major software release is exciting–new features, excited customers, growth opportunities for us–but there is a another reason that we are excited. More than any previous version and more than any product that we are aware of, RT 6.0 will help the people we work with most closely in customer organizations–SCADA specialists, system operators and administrators–to do their jobs better and more easily. Great customers teach their vendors and work with them to build the products that they need – we are fortunate to have a bunch of them. We look forward to seeing some at DistribuTECH while many others will be keeping the lights on.
