Fujitsu Simplifies EDP’s SAP HANA Landscape ahead of Full Liberalization of the Portuguese Energy Market

November 20, 2014
  • Leading international energy company, EDP, turns to Fujitsu to simplify and streamline its implementation and management of SAP HANA and so gain real-time customer insights
  • Fujitsu is a leading global partner with the business knowledge and expertise needed to realize the full potential of EDP‘s investments in SAP solutions
EDP is a vertically integrated utility company, the largest generator, distributor and supplier of electricity in Portugal, and one of the largest electricity generation companies and distributors of gas across the Iberian Peninsula. Since 2000, electricity supply in its home market has been open to competition, and will be fully liberalized from January 2016 onwards. Within this context, EDP decided to implement an integrated CRM business application, based on SAP HANA, that will enable it to better understand its customers’ preferences, identify and segment customer groups by multiple-choice criteria, and so enable it to deliver services targeted to meet customer needs.
As a trusted SAP Global Partner for over 40 years, Fujitsu was a perfect choice of partner for EDP. Fujitsu has successfully helped thousands of customers worldwide to simplify, innovate and grow based on its reliable and innovative Information and Communications Technology solutions. In this case, the company’s in-depth technology expertise on SAP HANA solutions was crucial for EDP’s decision. Fujitsu’s knowledge, engagement and support of the EDP team during the Proof of Concept phase, and the comprehensive service contract proposed positively influenced the customer’s reference architecture definition as well as the final decision.
Fujitsu empowers businesses like EDP to achieve their objectives and take the lead over their competition. Fujitsu infrastructure solutions for SAP HANA, based on powerful, industry-standard PRIMERGY and PRIMEQUEST servers, are highly cost-efficient and scalable to match mission-critical readiness with the lowest total cost of ownership.
