EU-wide harmonization of the gas sector puts new requirements on IT-supported business processes
The energy policy of the European Union pursues the objective of an EU-wide, unified gas market. By the intended liberalization and harmonization of the single markets the competitive pressure increases, since formerly nationally operating companies get active also abroad. Moreover, there is a need for action for the gas companies in order to implement the European regulatory requirements at the IT level. Especially in Eastern Europe there is a high demand for efficient solutions to implement business processes duly and market role-specifically in the respective SAP system.

Germany takes a pioneering role here. An example for that is the basic model for compensatory payments and accountancy rules in the gas sector (GABi Gas 2.0). In many European countries market roles such as Distribution System Operators, Transport System Operators or Suppliers are already defined, but there is a high need for adaptation, for example in case of the network codex of the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Gas (ENTSOG). In addition, increasing quality demands regarding data exchange processes between the various market partners arise, which further increase the requirements for the SAP Energy Data Management (SAP EDM). So flexible solutions for the implementation of business processes to the SAP EDM are needed, that are compliant to the market role specific rules of the companies in the gas sector. On the one hand such solutions must ensure the energy supply, on the other hand they must enable the companies a transparent cost control and high data quality.
