This new addition delivers EnergyIP’s MDUS interfaces for data management, exchange and process integration with SAP solutions and has successfully completed all tests required by the SAP Utilities IBU, demonstrating the complete business functionality based on integration between multiple meter data collection systems and SAP for Utilities as defined in SAP Enhancement Package 4.
