Energy companies today must react to a rapidly changing market which is wholeheartedly embracing low-carbon emissions and ‘green’ energy sources and optimizing the usage of the existing fossil fuel energy sources. As the energy consumption patterns and the behavior of the consumer changes, these companies need to be able to react and continue to provide exceptional customer experience. They should be able to effectively develop data-driven energy solutions and provide its customers with real-time and holistic energy data.
Over the years, these companies have built and managed various in-house systems, ‘out-of-box’ systems, multitudes of other sources to collect and maintain data. Although these myriads of systems have kept the Organization running, their IT teams have inherited a massive technical debt which keeps on growing.
Integration Platform As A Service
The inability to provide real-time rich data to fuel organizational growth and the need to improve its customer experience have prompted these Companies to search and reach out for an Integration-Platform-as-a-Service solution to alleviate their technical debt, satisfy their need to synchronize data movements between newer cloud-based applications and existing on-premises legacy applications and position themselves for future growth. Some advantages of iPaaS solutions are:
- Provide integration capabilities as a multi-tenant Cloud service
- Mostly a web-based interface to create data integrations
- Out of the box connectors to cloud applications and legacy on-premises applications
- Easily achieve data integrations between Cloud to Cloud or Ground to Ground or Cloud to Ground and vice-versa
- Subscription Service Model (You pay as you grow)
- No extra costs to upgrade technology stack and software applications. These are upgraded by the vendor and are available to all users and clients.
A Typical Technology Stack
Energy-domain Organizations today, typically have a technology landscape that resembles Fig. 1 and Fig. 2 below. While they initiate use of cloud-based applications like WorkDay for their HR processes, ServiceNow for their task processing and managing Operations workflows and Salesforce for their vital CRM needs; they continue to have legacy Data Warehouses built on Oracle and SQL Server; CRM on Oracle Applications and Microsoft Dynamics. Challenge lies in seamlessly integrating this stack of applications whilst putting time-to-market, accuracy, quality and highest business value at the forefront.
