IT has become critical for the Energy and Utilities sector
Do you ever think about the source of the water that comes from our tap? Or how electricity is generated and transported to you? And the logistics behind gas supply? Probably not that often… And that is very understandable, as these products are continuously available in our country. But these products belong to the critical infrastructure of the Netherlands. Energy and utilities providers face an ever increasing challenge to guarantee both the availability and quality of their projects in a time when customers are becoming more assertive and empowered. Without IT, this would be an impossible task.
The digitization of the energy and utilities industry is in full-speed. Everywhere you look, IT plays an important – if not essential – role. From sensors in production plants and transport facilities to customer databases for sending invoices. For energy and utilities providers, digital transformation offers new ways to connect customers, assets, employees and to derive actionable intelligence from IT. It provides a means to keep pace with the commercial, regulatory and technology changes affecting your industry, and enables better interaction with customers living in a connected world. Improving the reliability of core processes, but also protecting critical infrastructure and data while working towards sustainable energy goals are probably high on your agenda.
Another big challenge, and for the energy and utilities sector in particular, is the transition towards a sustainable energy model. There needs to be a balance between delivery, balancing and distribution. For example, windmills and solar power plants have a particular effect on the energy network, where loads need to be balanced. Further up in the chain, companies and households need a stable delivery of electricity which is always available. Digital transformation plays a decisive role in solving this puzzle.
