Scalability, flexibility and agility as key factors for competition
As in many other sectors, digitisation is currently considered a mega trend. In the beginning the focus was increasingly on regulatory measures, but today the competition for end customers is usually the focus of attention and drives the digital maturation process of energy suppliers. Without new business models, it will become increasingly difficult for energy companies to win out against purely digital players. This, however, creates the risk of being reduced to a purely infrastructural business with dwindling margins.
It is not electricity and gas that put money in the till these days, but digital solutions in the smart home sector. Added to this is the pressure to automate your own value chain in order to become more efficient. However, automated processes and smart components always cause a massive increase in the amount of data within a company. To manage all of these aspects, the energy sector requires new, scalable and flexible – but above all secure – infrastructures.
