New opportunities with intelligent data management

Digitalization is causing the number of different interfaces and the volumes of data we exchange to grow rapidly. This is precisely why it is essential to have a strong concept that sets out how to handle this data and generate maximum value from it.

Good data is the key to smooth business collaboration – especially because energy companies are facing major challenges when it comes to compliance and regulatory requirements.

With politicians and society demanding the ability to trace all energy sources across the entire supply chain, the need to do this is becoming increasingly urgent and more complex in terms of form and scope, not least due to new regulations such as the Supply Chain Act.

Only highly sophisticated data management services can cope with the sheer volume of data and files, identify links and correlations, and understand how to resolve issues and satisfy legal provisions as they arise.

Introducing UnitedDAT: the new data management service that connects all players in the supply chain of energy and natural resources and helps them attain maximum profit through data-driven decisions for forecasting and planning.

ENRICHING DATA FOR INTELLIGENT TASKS

Significantly increase efficiency!

UnitedDAT not only handles the entire data exchange for companies and allows for integration between different IT systems, but it can be used for intelligent tasks such as end-to-end process reporting, visualization and advanced analytics by using state-of-the-art technologies such as machine learning and AI.

Available in 3 expansion levels.

As a data broker, UnitedDAT offers fully automated data transfer mapping and data checks.  It does so by collecting, validating and correcting all data from relevant trading partners, such as terminals, haulers, fuel stations and financial institutions. This service includes manual follow-up when data is missing.

Next, the data is translated, completed, rearranged and unified, before being transferred in an ordered, completed and standardized format. This enables companies to process the data quickly, use it without delay and focus entirely on their core business.

UnitedDAT unifies data from any source, format or technology, enabling our team to offer a comprehensive set of data exchange features, back-office services and intelligent data processing to connected partners.

With level 1 alone, UnitedDAT contributes significantly to standardization and cost reduction in system and partner integration.

Building on level 1, Implico offers a comprehensive, worry-free data management package. Under this model, we take ownership of organizing and managing your integration with business partners: from design to realization through to maintenance and problem solving.

We are the ideal partner for this service because we have built up a huge network in the midstream and downstream industry by speaking its language and understanding its specialties. We know all the players in the market and can rapidly detect where problems lie and whom to contact in order to resolve them. With our vast network, we can connect all participants and help their customers leverage synergy with ease.

At level 3, UnitedDAT enables you to gain a holistic overview of your organization, business operations, performance and profitability, such as for reporting purposes. The underlying core data (a data lake), usually distinguished according to operational or commercial area, is further interpreted and transferred into an end-to-end business context; this is also facilitated via machine learning and AI technology. The context can be completed by making available additional valuable information through external sources, such as weather forecasts, vehicle locations, Platts prices and exchange rates.

By combining information so intelligently, this immediately uncovers causalities between basic activities and their business impact. Patterns are recognized, showing the positive or negative influence of operational activities that previously appeared to be irrelevant. Credible information of this kind enables you to improve your business in specific areas, mitigate critical areas and ensure operational excellence step by step and without paying to implement unnecessary brute-force changes. This is a way to increase profit at no risk and with maximum efficiency.

Finally, the information consolidated and interpreted by UnitedDAT is made available for use by other solutions such as SAP Control Tower along with various applications to meet a host of legal requirements, e.g. CSRD reporting at local level. In doing so, UnitedDAT facilitates the end-to-end processing of information in a consistent, fully transparent manner, managing the complex task of data compilation and interpretation ahead of its final formatting stage as part of other solutions.
