Austin, Texas - (Apr. 28th, 2009) - Troux™ Technologies, Inc., the leader in Strategic IT Planning and Control software, today announced that Vattenfall, one of the world’s largest energy companies, with operations stretching across Europe, has selected Troux software to simplify and bring transparency to the management of IT resources across the organization.

Vattenfall uses around 1000 software applications across multiple business units operating in six countries, with more complexity being added as the company continues to grow. Vattenfall is turning to Troux to bring transparency to IT operation, to help reduce complexity and to bring a new level of understanding to shared resources.

“For us, Troux is more of a business tool than an IT tool. Yes, it manages IT complexity but from a business perspective,” said Gerald Wieder, a lead architect in, Vattenfall Group. “Troux gives us transparency so we know which business processes are being used in each business unit, which IT applications are being used to support each business process and how those applications are being shared.”

“Companies, like Vattenfall, are undergoing rapid transformation as they change to meet shifting market demands. The IT organization must have clarity into usage of all IT resources to understand how the business can best be served. This is the vital role that Troux plays in today’s complicated technology-driven world,” said David Hood, CEO of Troux Technologies, Inc.

Transparency and Scalability Key Reasons for Selecting Troux

“Troux will also greatly improve our planning capability. It will show us which projects are planned by each business unit and how they are connected to each IT application. And, Troux will generate reports so we can communicate to business managers in a way understood by all,” continued Wieder

“Ultimately Troux will serve over 25,000 end users of applications across Vattenfall. Scalability was a critical factor for us. Vattenfall is growing and we must give the different stakeholders the information they need as new countries and new companies are added to the group,” said Wieder.
