SkySparc implements SaaS-based solution for Germany’s Uniper
By Gloria Methri
Independent solutions provider SkySparc has implemented its OmniFi solution for German energy company Uniper on a software-as-a-service (SaaS) basis, via Microsoft Azure.
Under this new outsourced service model, SkySparc will provide clients with OmniFi’s functionality and maintenance via the cloud, with minimal requirement for on-premises installation.
Business users can now use OmniFi to automate and integrate data and workflows with remote support from SkySparc while incurring a limited IT burden and reducing TCO.
Frankfurt-listed Uniper already uses OmniFi’s process automation and reporting capabilities to improve its treasury workflows and intends to widen its usage over time. The firm’s management decided to take a cloud-based approach to its IT infrastructure when it was spun out of E.ON in 2016.
Uniper’s selection of the SaaS model means SkySparc hosts and services the OmniFi platform and infrastructure, including application servers, storage, and database.
Several SkySparc clients already host OmniFi in their own cloud, but under the new service, all server components are fully hosted on SkySparc’s cloud. Due to the speed and efficiency benefits of upgrades, customization, and support services, SaaS will become the standard delivery channel for OmniFi.
Joakim Wiener, CEO SkySparc said, “We expect a wider range of corporate treasuries and financial institutions to embrace the benefits of cloud-based service models as part of their digital transformation strategies. By developing new service models such as this, SkySparc is ready to drive these changes, enabling clients to leverage technology more flexibly and efficiently to power business growth”.
A Uniper representative said, “We are delighted to be accessing OmniFi’s data integration and process automation capabilities on a SaaS basis. This model fits perfectly with our IT strategy, which enables us to utilize world-class solutions with minimal internal IT resources”.
