Energy Marketer Data Reconciliation System

DALLAS, Texas, Oct. 10, 2011 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Cogent Technology Group announced today that their Data Access and Reporting Service (DARS) has been chosen by the Oklahoma Municipal Power Authority (OMPA) to manage their market settlement data as they enter the ERCOT power generation market.

Cogent's DARS service is a hosted software service which facilitates the electronic receipt of business data from a company's trading partners. DARS parses incoming data into databases while providing client-access to the data directly via VPN or by the distribution of select reports. The service handles data in many formats including XML, EDI, Excel, CSV and TSV. "After spending five years proving our Data Flow Manager (DFM) platform, we are confident that we now offer the best value-for-money B2B data access and reporting service available. We have recently expanded this service beyond the energy industry and across the entire country," said Steve Redekopp, Director of Operations at Cogent.

The Oklahoma Municipal Power Authority is a state government agency that wanted a third-party service to periodically retrieve and report on their data from the growing ERCOT real-time electricity market and the other markets in which it participates. With the DARS service, OMPA expects to significantly reduce the amount of time that they spend on the complexities of the ERCOT Market Information System, and to increase their confidence in the settlement process by assuring the integrity of the market data.

Within the energy space, DARS currently serves clients using data provisioned by the ERCOT, CAISO, MISO and NYISO independent system operators (ISOs); and the ISO-NE, PJM and SPP regional transmission organizations (RTOs).
