The digitization of the energy industry is connecting market participants more and more. It also poses challenges, as in the case of Uniper. After the legal separation from E.ON, Uniper faced the task of creating a new IT systems landscape. Uniper was looking for a future-proof and easy to use solution for exchanging information in a regulated market. The key objective was to ensure the safe and regulated delivery of 272,000,000,000 kWh of gas and 41,000,000,000 kWh of electricity to homes and businesses throughout Europe.
Uniper examined various scenarios for the implementation of its market communication. The most important requirement was that a market proven solution was to be introduced within the project. All while the project’s duration was limited to only three months. Other important aspects were the user interface and a reduction of operational expenditures. After analyzing various vendors, Uniper chose SEEBURGER’s Markt Kommunikation (MaKo) Cloud solution.

SEEBURGER’s solution reduces our operating expenditures by a half compared to previous years. Even more important, it frees the department of time consuming tasks. We can now focus on the important tasks at hand, while the MaKo Cloud handles the rest in an automated fashion. It is a tremendous help in day to day business.

SEEBURGER‘s Cloud Service reduces user interaction to a bare minimum. The exchange of transactions happens in the background. In the event of technical issues, a backlog is generated and reduced once the issues have been sorted out. This helps to keep the attention of the users free and focused on the important tasks of day to day business. Any error messages are reliably processed and displayed in monitoring. The solution also takes proactive care of the exchange of certificates and the onboarding of partners. This gives Uniper more time for important business processes.
The implementation of the solution started in August 2018. The technical connection needed to fulfilled Uniper‘s high IT security requirements. This turned out to be tricky, since a direct connection to the billing system was not possible. To resolve the issue the API Management solution provided by Microsoft’s Azure Cloud was chosen. It is already used across the company and functions as the central platform for communication from the ERP system. Individual requirements were implemented in parallel on the cloud solution. After the successful onboarding of the market partners, the go-live took place on December 3, 2018. The solution has been in operation since then.
The Decision For a User Friendly Solution
The SEEBURGER MaKo Cloud Solution won Unipers trust for various reasons:
