, Senior Architect in Microsoft’s Global ISV group working with Invensys. Invensys is well known for industrial automation and control systems. They’ve been
working to develop a system for the power industry to manage the large network of
that will be used to build out
delivering electricity from suppliers to consumers. To do this Invensys is using
Windows Azure AppFabric

scale to the millions of homes and businesses that will form the smart grids.
