Capgemini helps Integrys implement Oracle PeopleSoft 9, and standardize business processes across merged business units to help the energy group reduce operating costs
Integrys Energy Group (NYSE: TEG) is a holding company focused on regulated and non-regulated energy delivery in the United States.The company wanted to gain efficiencies through standardizing business processes on a common Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system. With the objective of migrating operations from SAP and a non-supported version of Oracle PeopleSoft to the current version of PeopleSoft, as well as migrating to a new hardware platform, Integrys chartered a significant initiative to upgrade its systems. Capgemini was selected to help Integrys with the technology transformation.
The team from Capgemini provided a compelling business case for Integrys by leveraging Capgemini’s ASE methodology, documenting full investment payback through software-driven business process improvements, technical upgrade benefits, and the elimination of hundreds of customizations. In addition to the PeopleSoft 9.0 implementation, Capgemini helped Integrys migrate its technical architecture to Unix Servers and the Oracle Database from the previous Mainframe/DB2 environment.
Integrys expects to achieve tangible benefits as well as soft benefits over the next five years. The majority of the financial payback will be achieved through considerable spend reductions in supplies, inventory and equipment, enabled by the strategic sourcing and procurement improvements provided in the new software solution. Other financial benefits will be achieved through productivity improvements that enable Integrys to reduce headcount via natural attrition. Over the long-term, these benefits will enable Integrys to operate more efficiently, something its customers really appreciate.
