- Reduce cost of IT infrastructure by enabling a single SAP HANA platform for both Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and MDM
- Provide a single platform for an optimized end-to-end meter-to-cash process lifecycle
- Provide easy access to meter data to help companies use analytics and make decisions in real time
- Usher in the new digital economy
Wise Men is a certified SAP partner and value‐added reseller. Wise Men has also been working with Itron for 9+ years providing a range of IT services. In July 2017, Itron and SAP chose Wise Men as its software development and implementation partner for this unique project to move the IEE MDM to the SAP HANA platform.
Wise Men successfully completed the entire project with the help of onshore/offshore teams consisting of SAP HANA experts, C#, SQL Developers, Architects, Business Analysts, MDM domain experts and QA testers. The team worked for over 7 months to code, validate, optimize and migrate 7,900+ complex components to run seamlessly on SAP HANA database. On July 1, 2018, the solution Scale tested in the COIL (Co-Innovation Lab of SAP) for 5 million meters with increased efficiency of 81%.
