DENVER, Jan. 20, 2014 — SSP is proud to announce that NiSource officially released Esri and Schneider Electric at version 10.1 into production this morning. This complex implementation includes six individual production geodatabases covering seven states (Indiana, Ohio, Virginia, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Massachusetts), a 6-server Citrix farm, as well as significant integrations to third party systems including Maximo EAM.
