Oxygen, a DXC Technologies Company’s SmartUtility for asset-backed utilities is a rapid deployment SAP solution designed to meet the challenges faced by organisations operating within the utilities sector.

Ageing infrastructure, increasing population and seasonal scarcity of resources has been a touchstone for a significant reshuffle in the utilities market. With the spotlight firmly turned towards increased efficiency, market operators are facing more intense competition, increased public scrutiny, and rapidly changing regulatory obligations.

Oxygen’s SmartUtility is a templated SAP solution that provides utility companies with a technically sophisticated solution to improve financial performance and controls, asset management, monitoring and maintenance regimes. It combines the rich functionality of SAP’s Business-All-in-One solution with Oxygen’s unique rapid design, implementation and deployment program.

Proven results in less time and for less cost
The Oxygen SmartUtility solution utilises SAP Best Practices – a library of pre-configured business scenarios that helps utility companies realise business benefits without extensive configuration, combined with Oxygen’s rapid solution accelerators. The solution is deployed using a blend of SAP’s ASAP Focus methodology and implementation processes developed by Oxygen.

Using the SAP ASAP Focus approach, Oxygen delivers standard SAP product offerings and implementation services across a number of key business process areas, including procurement, finance and control processes, human resources, plant maintenance, investment management, and project systems.

The methodology is based on SAP and Oxygen’s extensive experience in deploying SAP systems for the utility sector, drawing on proven technical skills in finance, plant maintenance, project management and project systems.

The Oxygen SmartUtility approach also includes key implementation process templates for project governance, change management, risk assessment and QnA procedures – best practice methodologies that are proven to minimise risk, reduce implementation time and control project costs.

Key outcomes
The Oxygen SmartUtility solution allows organisations to get up and running with a core SAP Business-All-in-One solution for less time and less cost than a traditional implementation approach. It leverages SAP Best Practices to cover core business processes and provides the flexibility to meet any business process needs unique to a particular organisation.

The ‘build as you grow’ approach lets organisations enrich the solution as their business dictates, while providing a solid foundation to execute key day-to-day operational and financial processes.
