SAP has become the epicenter of business in the Utilities sector. With this being the case, CIOs of organizations are looking to leverage the SAP advantage and are seeking transformative tools and systems to integrate their business operations. This combined with intricacies such as the idea of leveraging the Cloud, TCO reduction, and new security standards are driving organizations to re-align their strategies. Natuvion’s prowess puts the firm right ahead of the rest of the pack and serves as the best bet for such firms. “We not only provide technical assistance but consultation as well. We help the client with the direction of the market and the strategies that will be beneficial for them in the long run,” says Hanke.

Natuvion’s performance tuning experts utilize SAP Business Intelligence to deal with big data to help the client’s business performance. The harmonization of process workflows and IT consolidation services enable clients to reduce complexity, improve competency, and create transparency of the business. With the help of the analytics dashboards, clients can clearly monitor their business operations based on SAP BI and HANA. Their transformation services also enable clients to merge or separate systems, adjust organizational structures and encrypt data anonymization. The firm leverages the standard management methodologies such as waterfall or scrum for project management and software development. Natuvion’s logical and IT strategy process consulting acts like an add-on SAP technical service to help Utilities companies to integrate their business better.
The experience that employees have come to has been applied to good use in many customer projects. In one such instance, one of the big Utilities enterprises in Germany utilized Natuvion’s integrated solution to split their highly complex system. The client needed to unbundle a huge SAP system and faced problems to adhere to government restrictions and complete it within a stipulated time period. By utilizing Natuvion’s “split un-bundling activities system”, the client was able to execute the entire project within thirty-seven hours, which was way less than the other consulting firm could prove work.
Moving ahead, Natuvion plans to provide solutions for S/4HANA—the next big thing in the Utilities sector. Apart from S/4HANA, they will also focus on developing their applications and services on HANA Cloud Platform. Hanke informs that after being leading edge in the transformation business in Europe to also expand its business to the U.S. “We will partner with other Utilities consulting companies and follow SAP's Cloud roadmap on the Utilities space to enlarge our business as well,” concludes Hanke.
