Florida Power & Light Co. has selected SAP for Utilities for consolidation of corporate planning, asset management and compliance reporting. Expanding on its existing SAP footprint in financials, supply chain and human resources, FPL will standardize on the SAP NetWeaver technology platform to more quickly and easily integrate new systems as its business continues to expand.
The announcement was made at the DistribuTECH 2008 Conference and Exhibition, held in Tampa, Florida, Jan. 22-24.
Dennis Klinger, CIO, Florida Power & Light, said, "Managing assets, reaching customers and enabling corporate executives to make sound decisions for growth are all mission-critical priorities for today's utilities. Our focus is to provide better visibility and access to data and the ability to analyze it so that we can optimize our assets, identify opportunities that make sense and create products and services that our customers demand."
FPL will implement the SAP for Utilities set of solutions to address industry challenges of compliance, performance management and planning. The portfolio will provide better visibility into asset operations, including the operation of the nation's largest wind farm. To facilitate a smooth and rapid transition to SAP solutions for end users, FPL will leverage Duet software from SAP and Microsoft to provide users with access to applications from a familiar Microsoft Office interface.
