Strategic partnership for energy industry
The innovative Wuerzburg-based companies Palmer AG and iTiZZiMO AG from now on follow a joint path in terms of digital transformation within the energy industry. Both partners’ competences complement each other in a perfect way to offer completely integrated solutions for digitization within the energy industry.
Both companies already are successful within the energy sector and due their partnership now start a strong alliance for even better and more flexible digital solutions. With its IoT-Platform for connecting different systems iTiZZiMO is the perfect counterpart to Palmer AG with its deep know-how in SAP IS-U processes and interfaces.
“Our origins are within the SAP-Core Classic world and compared to Palmer AG we only recently deal with processes within SAP IS-U. Of course we also have successfully implemented projects with SAP integration but we also are pleased getting further expertise due to profound knowledge of Palmer AG”, states Christian Kleinschroth, CTO at iTiZZiMO.
The partnership’s main goal is to create holistic solutions for digitally transforming the public utility 4.0, either within the utility-specific IS-U module that for example enables meter data management or in conventional SAP modules without a specific industry focus.
The two companies’ partnership is the ideal basis to achieve this goal as the expertises are complementary.
Palmer AG has extensive experience within SAP IS-U, so the utility-specific processes can be digitally mapped in an optimized way. The complete interconnection of different systems and the realization of processes within SAP-Core classic is made by iTiZZiMO. The joint work massively is made easier by the platform Simplifier, developed by iTiZZiMO. Within this web-based configuration platform all user interfaces and process logic are configured instead of being traditionally programmed..
Volker Seidenspinner, CEO Palmer AG
“For us the Simplifier is a completely new tool but we are convinced of the massive savings in time as well as the operating comfort. We took a look at some previous projects that were realized with the Simplifier and all components we need for an application already exist. So, we don’t need to develop content, everything can be placed via drag & drop.”
With its Simplifier iTiZZiMO pursues the target of simplifying the holistic use of IT in business environments, for all users. Whether system administrator, application developer or user of the business app, everybody benefits from the Simplifier: because of a less complex system landscape that’s easier to maintain, due to time-saving configuration and use of content that already exist (like system interfaces) and last but not least through modern devices and intuitively operable applications like known from private use.
In future iTiZZiMO and Palmer AG will realize projects together, from concept to implementation. “Of course we will continue to focus on topics we already deal with successfully, like digitization of requests and procurement or support for reading and exchanging meters. Through partnership we will furthermore focus on new topics like smart metering”, Kleinschroth explains further goals.
To present the solidarity of both companies future common marketing activities and trade fair appearances will play a role. “ We are looking forward to working together with iTiZZiMO and are convinced that the Palmer AG, iTiZZiMO and especially our customers will benefit from the strategic partnership”, Sebastian Bojarra, division manager at Palmer AG sums up.
