Today, Open Web Technology, a leading strategy and technology consulting firm and Greenbird Integration Technology, the leading big data integration technology provider to the energy sector, announced a new strategic partnership. Its aim is to accelerate innovation and jointly support Switzerland's energy transition plan by 2050.
Over the last year, teams from the two companies have worked intensively together, combining their respective expertise. The focus was to simplify system integration and data management for specific clients in Switzerland. These efforts have already delivered successes in the first joint client cases. The partnership will help to advance this collaboration to the next level. Open Web Technology will combine Greenbird's Utilihive Platform with its own digital transformation expertise. This will enable Open Web Technology to deliver the most modern and flexible integration platform, customized and tailored for Swiss utilities.
The Electricity Supply Ordinance (OApEl) requires Swiss Distribution System Operators (DSOs) to replace 80% of their metering points with smart meter technology. But as digital transformation gains momentum, there's a pressing need for Swiss DSOs to evaluate their IT and OT systems. They must ensure their infrastructure is fit for purpose and can handle the changes and uncertainties that lie ahead.
Open Web Technology is well known for its experience in the Swiss market, its proven methodologies for designing and implementing digital solutions and its expertise in managing complex long-term projects. The partnership with Greenbird will unlock new opportunities to meet client and market needs by developing tailor-made solutions using state-of-the-art technologies.
“We are combining the best of both companies to offer our customers the most modern, flexible integration platform on the market. By leveraging Greenbird's Utilihive platform we can help our customers meet new regulatory obligations, manage big data more efficiently and accelerate time to value. By using Utilihive, Swiss utilities can simplify their digital transformation,” said Cédric Debrunner Partner and Head of sales at Open Web Technology in charge of the partnership.
Greenbird and Open Web Technology share a common vision of providing innovative solutions to the energy sector that will help drive the transition to a sustainable energy future.
“We are excited to partner with Open Web Technology to offer a unique proposition in the Swiss energy market. Combining our Utilihive energy-ready integration platform with Open Web Technology's digital expertise will enable them to deliver a fully integrated, client-focused solution” said Bianca van Effrink, VP International Business Development at Greenbird Integration Technology.
