A Smart Energy program is a complex program and requires –

  • An innovative and risk managed approach
  • An outcome driven and milestone focussed model
  • Robust management of the Smart Energy end-to-end solution architecture
  • Structured Smart Energy IT Solution design, build, test, deploy, stabilization and support transition

Capgemini has extensive collaboration with Smart Energy product vendors in the Smart Energy space across North America, Asia Pacific and Europe. As an active member of IEC CIM committees, Capgemini collaborates with most Smart Energy product vendors to define the standard interfaces of Smart Energy and provides input in their product roadmap.

Capgemini’s approach is built on years of experience designing and implementing Smart Energy solutions for cross-functional and transformational situations. Our approach leverage existing process and requirements work, knowledge and resources and takes advantage of the Collaboration Factory (established using our Accelerated Solutions Environment (ASE)) to enable time boxing, parallelization, iterative design and increase stakeholder engagement.

We utilize our Collaboration Factory to run specifically designed events for the integrated design with the business team leads and business analysts that own the processes to confirm or identify changes that are required to meet business needs and regulatory requirements. We clarify processes, associated rules and gain alignment of key stakeholders including appropriate representation from solution, testing, architecture, project management, and technology vendors.

The use of the Collaboration Factory approach for individual workshops on a program has been extremely successful. We leverage our Collaboration factory to enable clear understanding and alignment of all parties.

Capgemini work closely with the requirements manager to manage requirements and provide baseline requirements traceability between:

  • Industry, Regulatory and Capabilities, Functions and Requirements
  • Program Requirements
  • Program Business Requirements

Utilizing our Collaboration Factory, we finalize the detailed business requirements and work closely with the testing stream to monitor the compliance of the build with requirements and handover processes and requirements to Business As Usual (BAU). Our Collaboration Factory also ensures that the business requirements are factored into the downstream project activities and support the overarching capabilities, functions and requirements.
