MADRID, Spain, Oct. 19, 2005 (PRNewswire-FirstCall) -- Telvent GIT S.A., a global real-time information technology company, has been selected by the City of Lee's Summit, Missouri to participate in a co-engineering initiative aimed at upgrading the supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system that manages the supply and water distribution for Lee's Summit.

Already a long-standing Telvent customer, the City decided to upgrade from OASyS 5.2.2 to Telvent's latest technology, OASyS DNA (Dynamic Network of Applications), in order keep up with changing business requirements. As Manuel Sanchez Ortega, Telvent's chairman and chief executive officer, explained, "Switching to OASyS DNA will allow the City to address their need for lower operational costs and greater system security. In addition, the open architecture of OASyS DNA will allow the City to add or remove functionality as required, thereby ensuring that the system grows and changes as the City's needs change."

OASyS DNA offers unparalleled flexibility for data exchange with corporate computing facilities through the use of SQL (Structured Query Language) -- a programming language used to process data in a relational database), ODBC (Open DataBase Connectivity) -- a database programming interface from Microsoft that provides a common language for Windows applications to access databases on a network, and web tools.

The City of Lee's Summit provides water and sewer service to Lee's Summit -- a community of approximately 90,000. Because Lee's Summit is located away from any natural water supply, the City purchases already treated water, which is ready to consume, from surrounding areas. Approximately two thirds of Lee's Summit's water supply is purchased from Independence and the remaining one third is purchased from Kansas City.

Telvent GIT S.A. (www.telvent.com), based in Madrid, Spain, with North American headquarters in Calgary, Canada, and U.S. headquarters in Houston, specializes in high value-added solutions in four specific industrial sectors (energy, traffic, transport and environment) in Europe, North America, Latin America, and China.
