Zug, Switzerland, February 22, 2011 — Landis+Gyr announced a development resulting from its software cooperation agreement with SAP. Landis+Gyr’s Gridstream MDUS (smart meter data unification and synchronization) is now an SAP-qualified business solution.
With this step, Landis+Gyr's Gridstream MDUS integrated with the SAP for Utilities solution portfolio can deliver an end-to-end integrated offering, helping ensure investments made can adapt and fit into future IT architecture.
“Landis+Gyr has been working intensively with SAP for over a year developing this software, and we are proud to announce Gridstream MDUS is now an SAP-qualified business solution,” said Andreas Umbach, President and Chief Operating Officer, Landis+Gyr. “The functionality provided by Gridstream MDUS integrated with SAP for Utilities solutions will undoubtedly help increase our customers’ competitiveness as well as cost effectiveness and, importantly, has been proven in a field installation. Finally, as services continue to evolve, we will share product road maps with SAP to help utilities manage energy better.”
SAP-qualified business solutions are complementary to SAP software offerings and provide additional choices and flexibility for organizations running SAP software. An SAP-qualified business solution is developed or integrated in accordance with SAP development guidelines, has certified integration with the SAP NetWeaver technology platform, and has undergone solution qualification by SAP to meet additional criteria.
SAP-qualified business solutions address a specific business or technology focus such as advanced metering infrastructure (AMI). They have an established track record of successfully serving customer needs in the focus areas selected by SAP.
This latest development comes after Landis+Gyr and SAP announced in 2009 an agreement to integrate Landis+Gyr’s AMI with SAP for Utilities to deliver a new level of transparency and availability to energy utilities.
