The Energy & Utilities market amidst changes and new players

Deregulations, company mergers, loss of monopoly positions which require competition through complex, flexible offers: the Energy & Utilities market   has undergone thorough changes in recent years and has been subject to increasingly competitive pressure. IT technologies play a key role in this sector.

At the end of 2003, Engineering acquired Neta, a specialized company, leader in its market. Together they set up Engineering's Utilities Division, the largest Italian company dedicated to this sector: due to size, number of clients and installations of its products on the market.

We began to deal with utilities in 1980; quite a long space of time to allow the company to accrue competences and unique technological and business knowledge or an IT partner, continuously transferred to our products in an innovative manner. The market acknowledges our solution's leadership position that is enriched by its functionality, welcoming new business needs and new sector regulations, also issued in Italy at a fast rate in the years of economic transformation.

The new generation platform, Net@SUITE, created by Engineering for the Energy & Utilities market, has taken up considerable economic and human resources. A strategic choice that has brought about the complete redesign of the previous solution, from both the point of view of functions and that of technological infrastructure, in SOA architecture.

Rationalization, growth, creation of customer loyalty in a market that has become extremely competitive: these are the three variables that the best business success stories will play on in the near future.
