Preliminary Release Plan for changes to IESO IT systems posted for review
August 24, 2017
Three changes within this Release Plan are posted for review under Release R38.1 on the IT Release Schedule.
A necessary software upgrade for the IESO Report Site was communicated in Release R38.0. This upgrade, which will result in cosmetic changes for participants logging in to the IESO Report Site to retrieve confidential reports, will now be included in this release.
Also in this release, a revision will be made to the confidential Dispatch Advisory Report following the upgrade of the IESO’s Market Information and Day-Ahead Optimization Systems (see the following article for more details).
Finally, the Dispatch Service will be in production in early 2018. This system will replace Message Exchange, used to give dispatch instructions to Market Participants. The two systems will work in parallel for 12 months to provide Market Participants the opportunity to switch over to the new system, in coordination with the IESO.
Feedback on any of these changes within this Release Plan to IESO IT systems is due by September 6. Comments and feedback can be sent to email@example.com.
