Business Automation for Fortum
Sigma Software team took part in updating and creating online energy indicators, reporting widgets, and billing modules based on energy consumption reports and forecasts. The solution was developed using Oracle and QlikView. Oracle part provides data views for selected reports, and QlikView deployed in the enterprise builds QlikView and analytical reports.
The solution was built to collect user energy consumption data from the central database and to provide aggregated reports to company analysts, with various charts, graphs, forecasts and metrics. The report shows not only the consumption level, but how consumption depends on different factors, e.g. weather, season, pricing levels, and so on.
In addition, the solution includes a possibility to generate forecasts for future periods considering additional factors. For example, a user can see the forecast for energy consumption for the coming winter if it’s cold/mild, and so forth.
Energy Consumption and Forecast functionality has been successfully put on production and is being used on a daily basis.
