According to various online sources, Provisioning is defined as:
|•||The act of supplying a service to an end user.|
|•||The process of managing attributes and accounts within the scope of a defined business process or interaction. Provisioning an account or service may involve the creation, modification, deletion, suspension, or restoration of a defined set of accounts or attributes.|
|•||The process enabling administrators to assign system resources and privileges to users, including employees, contractors and business partners. IT managers may also enforce security policy through provisioning software.|
In ManagingEnergy, provisioning is the setup of a new subscription. It includes uploading and defining the initial user accounts, facilities, meters, utility accounts, tariffs, historical meter readings and invoices, and any other information agreed within the contract.
