… in the energy sector
BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE FOR ENERGY SUPPLIERS
Business intelligence for utilities solves some core problems in the industry.The energy sector is determined by increasing competitive pressure. At the same time, energy suppliers are obliged to provide valid and up-to-date information to internal and external addressees, associations and also the Federal Network Agency. In order to achieve this, an efficient and uniform reporting and planning system is indispensable. A business intelligence solution can be the key to success in the energy sector.
ELIMINATE DATA SILOS
Isolated reporting islands and fragmented data are replaced by a complete integration of the commercial and technical business process, in which planning, reporting and consolidation are efficiently and meaningfully networked. Error-prone planning in Excel is avoided, leaving more time for data analysis. Visual presentations, also in the form of dashboards, as well as drill-down functions for detailed views support the analysis work. This enables end users to make the right decisions.

bdg supports companies in the energy sector in tracking and retrieving all data and making it available for sustainable controlling as well as planning and forecasting.

Planning processes are often firmly anchored in utilities and require sophisticated change management to establish modern standards – bdg supports you with professional project management and a focus on customer success.
