Energy & Utilities

There is no industry that affects the day-to-day economic livelihood, societal functioning, and quality of life like the energy and utilities (E&U) industry. However the current industry scenario is starved for microeconomic and macroeconomic forecasting; business analytics, modeling and simulation; risk management; and, decision-making under uncertainty. The industry requires robust technology and processes, from metering and monitoring, through billing and client care, to improve efficiency and boost business performance.

Deregulation has opened up new opportunities and new threats, forcing utilities to expand their focus from simply providing energy, to rethink their strategies and aligning them more closely with client needs. Utility providers are therefore renewing activity directed at improvements in operations, use of information technology and automation of business processes.

Additionally, more cross-functional business processes and client service-focused IT solutions are being introduced to improve operational efficiency and maintain and expand the client base.

Today, most E&U companies are looking for IT solutions that will help them:

  • Optimize process efficiency within front, mid and back office
  • Develop strategies for adapting change
  • Speed time to market
  • Grow revenues and expanding market share
  • Reduce service costs
  • Improve profit margins and drive shareholder value
