The Root Group Announces New Site Standardization Service

Based on experience architecting over 100 renewable energy, NERC CIP compliant IT environments, Root Group today is announcing its Site Standardization Service.

Based on Root Group’s years of experience architecting NERC CIP compliant IT systems, a Reference Architecture is built for renewable energy site standardization that meets the client’s compliance requirements. EPCs and Owners will receive a compliant IT system that meets their specific needs and requires less upgrades and ongoing maintenance. There is less client effort when Root Group builds it. You can gain operation-wide consistency with reduced cost and complexity. The following service steps are included:

Discovery: Root Group architects meet with Client personnel to understand the environment, client’s preferred vendors, determine the goals for the site standard build and analyze the client-specific requirements.

Design: Root Group Designs the standard site configuration and creates a requirements package. These documents are reviewed with the client at each step of the design process.
