Rick Cutter has over twenty years of experience managing the delivery of technology solutions for utilities. As a Managing Director for Cloud for Utilities, Mr. Cutter has established the Cloud for Utilities strategy in collaboration with Mr. Amos Snead. Mr. Cutter brings a realistic view of the needs and concerns of this industry; especially as it relates to cloud technologies. The inaugural Summit of this new forum was held this past November in Washington, DC. With sessions from leading cybersecurity experts to Utility CEO’s sharing insight into the financial aspects of using the Cloud, this event proved to be both timely and informative.
For AAC Utility Partners, of which he is a co-founder, he leads implementation strategy, planning and client team implementation support team. These services are delivered for On-premises and Cloud solutions exclusively to the utility industry.
In addition to his on-premise utility software experience, he also managed the first Cloud SaaS CIS model for the utility industry. This business model was a variable price model service based on consumption without license fees. The business focused on the emerging deregulated energy markets in the late 1990’s. In those early days, the model was referred to as Application Service Providers (ASP).
