Impact on business models and IT landscapes

Where mergers and liberalisation were once the magic idioms, terms such as sustainability, Smart Grids, smart meters and the recent splitting of energy producers and energy networks now claim top priority in the energy sector. In this, IT has become indispensable.

The combination of IT and engineering

These are just a few examples of the continuous changes in the energy market, such as the redeployment of the energy market as a result of changed laws and regulations. Of course, these changes not only impact business models, but also the layout of IT landscapes. A noted example is the increased use of GIS (Geographic Information Systems) in order to map and make important geographical information available.

The challenge of IT in the energy sector is in the combination of IT and engineering

The challenge of IT in the energy sector is in the combination of IT and engineering. Not only is expertise of IT processes required, insight into the network process is also important. Given the current situation, the changes in the energy sector will continue in the coming years. This requires specific training courses, developed by Calco. For example, a specialisation has been developed for SAP ISU, Smart Grids and GIS. This enables Calco to respond to both market demand and your specific demands as a client.
