Peace Software Secures Top Talent To Lead World’s Largest CIS Development Team for Utilities
Peace Software, the world’s largest utility CIS (Customer Information System) developer, has appointed Steve Carpenter as Application Development Manager. Carpenter is based at Peace Software’s Energy™ Development Centre in Auckland where he leads more than 200 people dedicated to application development and testing of the Energy suite.

During this seven-year stint, Carpenter advised major corporate and government clients on systems solutions to complex business problems. Additionally, he provided guidance on best practises in advanced development and integration to a wide variety of clients in the financial services, transport, manufacturing, government and health sectors. Microsoft recognised Carpenter by appointing him as MSDN Regional Director, one of only 120 worldwide.
