Xtensible Solutions first opened its doors in 1998 as a standards-based consulting company for the utility industry. Since the company’s early days, when three friends hunched over a wobbly table in an unfinished basement to finalize Xtensible’s original MDi framework, Xtensible has enjoyed a culture that values leadership, innovation, and community.

The history of Xtensible outlines our mission-critical projects with leading industry utilities, product launches, and key milestones along the way. As we move forward, we will continuously refine our strategies and incorporate insights from our clients, employees, and partners ensuring that Xtensible continues to be innovative and deliver exceptional value to our clients.
