Forward-looking technologies, innovations, competitive pressure, trend reversal of digitalization - powerful words that have also accompanied the energy industry on a massive scale in recent years. Hardly any other industry has experienced such a turnaround as the utility industry. A must: industry-specific solutions to be prepared for the future. Also in this case SAP is a pioneer. And we, as an expert and trusted partner, are actively on the move for our customers and those who want to become one.
Some people find it difficult to find their way through the jungle of innovations and changes in terminology. Simply and to the point, these are the essentials of the modular portfolio:
SAP S/4 for Utilities: The successor product to SAP ECC with IS-U. The familiar functionalities of SAP IS-U are complemented by modular functionalities that are available on-premises or as a cloud solution.
SAP Cloud for Utilities: Not a replacement for IS-U. This software-as-a-service solution enables, depending on its configuration, the use of multi-services offered by SAP. Through a hybrid approach, for example components of the CX suite, such as the Sales Cloud, can be used, while the regulatory processes can be mapped in the SAP Market Communication Cloud.
SAP Market Communication Cloud: Often referred to as Maco Cloud, enables the provision of regulatory processes.
SAP Cloud for Energy: SAP's public cloud solution combines Big Data-enabled energy and water data management on an open platform with easy-to-manage integration into established processes and IT infrastructures as well as intelligent and industry-relevant analytics.
Integration: The integration of the cloud components, such as the CX suite described above, the Cloud for Energy, the Market Communication Cloud or even the cloud solution for asset management is done via cloud integration - simple, pragmatic and with SAP on-board resources.
And if you need advice, we are there to optimize and harmonize with you - your processes, business procedures, technologies and your system landscape.
