Bringing the Benefits of the Cloud to Public Utilities

All industries have some level of consumer interaction, but when you are dealing directly with a public related service, safety monitoring is a big factor. Other benefits of using the cloud include access to fleet and equipment management and monitoring, as well as predictive maintenance. We work closely with our public utilities clients to predict and respond to their complex operational demands.

“The utility computing model of AWS and the cloud are the perfect fit for this workload. We leaned heavily on Onica's expertise to take advantage of the AWS platform, and we were very please with the results.”
