Gasunie Deutschland prematurely extends ICT outsourcing contract with QSC
- QSC to remain as ICT full-service provider to Gasunie Deutschland through to July 2018
- QSC to provide ICT infrastructure, SAP services, and communications platform for business messaging and archiving
- Expansion and optimisation of sector-specific consulting services
Cologne, 20 July 2015. Gasunie Deutschland will be relying on the industry experience of the one-stop ICT service provider QSC AG in the years ahead as well. The Hanover-based long-distance grid operator, which operates a natural gas transmission grid of around 3,600 kilometres in north-western Germany, is prematurely extending its ICT outsourcing contract through to July 2018.
The solution package QSC AG offers to Gasunie covers full provision and operation of ICT infrastructure and all SAP services, archiving and the business messaging and communications service. The business messaging and communications platform acts as the hub for incoming and outgoing data about business processes. It operates in accordance with predefined rules and procedures and connects Gasunie’s applications and systems to each other, as well as to customers and market partners.
“In QSC, we have found a partner who has confirmed our trust in terms of its IT and industry expertise”, comments Dr. Wolfgang Strüve, Manager of Information & Business Services at Gasunie Deutschland, with regard to the contract extension.
“Gasunie is a strategic partner and also an innovation driver for QSC AG”, adds Bernd Loseke, Head of Energy Direct Sales at QSC. “Consistently working together to develop customised ICT services based on specific energy industry needs has enabled us to successfully expand our customer base.”
QSC AG can count energy companies such as the transmission grid operator Amprion, Süwag, the long-distance grid operators Nowega, Gascade and the market area coordinator GASPOOL among its customers and is increasingly building a reputation as an ICT service provider to the energy industry.
