Siemens and SAP are joining forces to bring Siemens’ meter data management solution, Energy IP, to global energy and utility companies. Utility companies will now be able to buy Energy IP directly through SAP under the name SAP Meter Data Management by Siemens, according to the agreement announced yesterday.
The collaboration is expected to begin sometime in the second quarter of this year. The companies have also agreed to work together to create a road map for the development of additional tools to support energy and utility companies.

“Siemens and SAP have long-standing relationships with utilities and municipalities,” said Thomas Zimmermann, CEO of the Siemens Digital Grid business unit, in a statement. “Our smart grid application platform, Energy IP, combined with SAP for Utilities solutions will reach nearly half of all power utilities in the world and will bring our customers a high level of intelligence and insight to make data not only valuable but actionable in today’s information-driven world.”
