Microsoft BizTalk / BTC CIM AcceleratorThe development of power grids, including the installation of smart grids, and regulatory demand for more efficient grid operation are the main drivers of the development of innovative, „smart“ IT solutions. These are based on the exchange of huge amounts of information between key applications such as SAP, power grid control systems and GIS.

BTC CIM Accelerator
The Common Information Model (CIM) is an international standard from the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission). It standardizes data communication in energy companies, facilitates the integration of IT systems and ensures technically correct exchange of information. Since a couple of years, use of CIM (IEC 61970/61968) in the energy sector is officially endorsed or even mandatory in several US American states. It is also commonly used throughout Asia and is more and more used in Europe as well.
