On Thursday January 15, 2015, Transmission & Distribution World magazine hosted a Webinar covering the successful Smart Grid implementation at the City of Fort Collins.
Fort Collins Utilities installed advanced electric and water smart meters in over 100,000 homes, schools, and businesses throughout the City. NextAxiom software was used by the City of Fort Collins to integrate all its Smart Grid systems so it could offer Fort Collins residents more timely customer service solutions and up-to-date usage information. By using tools like the hyperService Platform software, this very successfully project positions Fort Collins to continue its innovate in the future offering energy efficiency services with Smart Grid.
T&D World Magazine created an “Experience Station” Website to assist municipal and public Utilities implement SmartGrid best practices and lessons learned at the City of Fort Collins, Colorado. The Experience Station Website highlights the Advanced Meter Fort Collins (AMFC) project specifically and provides details on how vendors including NextAxiom participated in this very successful SmartGrid implementation.
Fort Collins leveraged the power of the NextAxiom hyperService Platform to integrate across applications - a core requirement for a successful Smart Grid initiative. In the words of Matt Scheetz of the City of Fort Collins, “Lots of IT vendors talk the talk about ‘development without coding’. But I’ve never seen anything as rich and easy-to-use as NextAxiom hyperService Studio relative to empowering an IT team to build complex composite services. This level of abstraction and encapsulation doesn’t exist anywhere else in any service creation environment I’m familiar with. The NextAxiom platform enabled us to deliver cross- application information flow from a host of smart grid and business systems. And it did it fast, meaning in days vs. weeks, and weeks vs. months. It’s the ultimate business layer tool.”
Fort Collins Utilities has over 100,000 electric and water meters across homes, schools, and businesses. This project was undertaken to provide Fort Collins residents with timelier customer service solutions and up-to-date usage information. The project also positions Fort Collins and other forward looking Utilities to continue to innovate in the future.
Senior executives from leading utilities in North America are participating in a series of three business roundtables sponsored by NextAxiom. The first roundtable session was held on August 20th and the two subsequent roundtables are scheduled for October 2nd and 14th. The MeetTheBoss TV Roundtables are focused on how to solve the critical business challenges of complex nuclear work management using mobile technology to reduce costs and improve safety.
Each Roundtable includes the NextAxiom Principal for Mobile Work Management along with four Utility executives discussing practical issues faced when transitioning from a paper-based to mobile paperless processes. The roundtable participants all share the experiences and lessons learned providing roundtable attendees with important insights regardless of what stage they are in the process.
NextAxiom executive interviews with Sandy Zylka, VP of Products and Technology and Bill Kilgore, Principal, Mobile Work Management highlighted the domain expertise NextAxiom brings to the table to solve the complexities of transitioning to mobile, paperless solution while driving new workforce efficiency.
After observing the successful mobile work package implementation at the Savannah River DOE Site, Los Alamos National Labs selected NextAxiom to provide its Mobile Work Package (MWP) solution. MWP is the first-ever paperless, mobile work package solution designed for the rigors of the nuclear industry. The Los Alamos DOE site will use MWP to improve workforce efficiency and safety with real-time maintenance information eliminating the need for massive amounts of paper documents resulting in multi-million dollar savings annually once fully deployed.
Janis Love Piper, a first line maintenance supervisor for SRNS. Said, “From a mobile workforce perspective, it’s very effective. You don’t spend a lot of time chasing down documents; since it’s electronic, someone can look at the work package from a job site miles away. They don’t have to come back to a central facility if they need more prints or procedures---they just need access to a docking system or wireless connectivity and they can have what they need in a matter of minutes.”
MWP automates the full lifecycle of the work package, from planning to records and is fully integrated with Ventyx Asset Suite. Additionally, with MWP from NextAxiom, Los Alamos will be positioned to support new functionality as mobile devices become even more capable and pervasive.
NextAxiom Technology was selected to provide a major new automation solution for a critical Duke Energy business Performance Improvement initiative. The solution will be deployed across the Nuclear Fleet. The project includes the creation of 25+ streamlined, role-based action tracking workflows for condition reporting and work management. The project leverages several NextAxiom hyperService component libraries and did not require modification to the underlying Asset Management system for deployment. NextAxiom is responsible for all aspects of the Performance Improvement automation including: requirement gathering, functional & detailed designs, workflow creation, testing and assisting with production deployment.
NextAxiom CEO, Ash Massoudi, will lead two executive roundtables on MeetTheBoss TV focused on unlocking the functionality in silos of information and applications. Many organizations struggle with complex middleware to flow information across systems in order to bring new functionality that more closely aligns with real business processes.
The roundtable will focus on practical and incremental ways to achieve a silo-free enterprise and will dispel one of the biggest misconceptions that exists today: that complex problems require complex solutions. Ash will advocate that the big first step is to realize that there is a simpler solution to leveraging the existing systems in order to take advantage of advancements in technology such as those in user experience and cloud. Taking a new approach will increase overall productivity of the business significantly because applications in a Silo-Free environment will allow new automation that heretofore was impossible and very labor intensive.
NextAxiom Technology, Inc., a software and solutions provider that enables silo-free automation, today announced the general availability of the first-ever Mobile Work Package (MWP) designed for the rigors of the nuclear industry. Jointly developed with Savannah River Nuclear Solutions (SRNS), under contract with the U.S. Department of Energy, MWP has been successfully in production at SRNS, and is now available as a packaged application to other utilities under exclusive licensing from NextAxiom.
In today’s highly regulated environment, MWP uses the innovative hyperService Platform software technology and mobile devices to eliminate the need for paper documents while it improves workforce efficiency and safety with real-time information. The first MWP rollout at a single site with SRNS saw a $2.7 million annual cost savings and the payback period was under one year.
“The Mobile Work Package has been such a success at SRNS that we wanted to share it with others in the nuclear industry,” said Peggy Davis, Senior Vice President of Support Services for SRNS. “We are encouraged that through this transfer of technology, others may be able to benefit from the government’s investment and the excellent work that’s been done on this application.”
“From a worker perspective, it’s very effective,” said Janis Love Piper, a first line maintenance supervisor for SRNS. “You don’t spend a lot of time chasing down documents; since it’s electronic, someone can look at the work package from a job site miles away. They don’t have to come back to a central facility if they need more prints or procedures, they just need access to a docking system or wireless connectivity somewhere and they can have what they need in a matter of minutes.”
MWP automates the entire paper-intensive process for work orders and associated maintenance processes. MWP allows planners, mechanics and maintenance managers to focus on the job at hand regardless of the underlying applications or the status of network connectivity. It is all managed seamlessly and is ready to support new functionality as these devices become even more capable and pervasive throughout the utility industry.
“The MWP application is a great example of what can be accomplished when the technical barriers of complexity are dropped,” said Ash Massoudi, CEO of NextAxiom. “The silo-free environment created when using the hyperService Platform fueled a significant business innovation, like MWP, from an idea to production in just a few months.”

Traditional middleware is not suitable for the Cloud: it's simply too complex and it does not provide a pay-per-use charge model. In this session we will discuss a new middleware paradigm for developing and integrating applications: metered, virtualized middleware. The virtualized attribute allows you to easily build and run new applications in the cloud reusing existing on-premise application functionality.
The metered attribute has two aspects: it provides a usage-based charge model for the middleware itself and it provides a built-in, metered charge model, much like electricity, for your new applications.
