Case Study - Reimplementation of Existing ETRM for IPP
Challenge: IPP infrastructure was complicated and wrought with manual touchpoints, poor communication and limited ability for adequate reporting of the business:
- Disparate systems with manual touch points
- Non-standard naming conventions attributing to non-standard reporting
- Legacy set of processes and controls that were mis-understood by new org
- Confusing logic in middleware
Solution: Optimus worked with the organization to identify key business processes and identify a clean, more robust infrastructure. Key goals were identified and targeted:
- Single source of truth for all reporting
- Standardization of data foundation
- Fully integrated ETRM including settlement and accounting data
- Removal of spreadsheets and lack of controls where possible (i.e., implemented MarketView for all curve data)
- Enhanced functional controls especially around trade data (improved trade verification tools and tracking)
Result: The client has improved end to end communication and reporting capabilities. All functional areas now have clear insight into data and reporting. The new infrastructure is a much improved control environment and much easier to support from both the business and technology.
