The German Association of Energy and Water Industries (BDEW) has decided to amend Market Communication 2020, which mainly means a shift in responsibility from the distribution network operator to the metering point operator. The customer's systems must be comprehensively adapted accordingly.
When adapting the customer's internal systems for market communication 2020, all basic and advanced requirements must be precisely defined for implementation on the cut-off date of 01.12.2019. The customer will be faced with further developments of the master data application, the system for recording measured values, the processing of incoming documents, the energy data information system and the interfaces between the applications. Another challenge is the new development of a controlling system.
The following tasks will arise in 2020 for the changeover in the course of market communication: The cross-project control, collation as well as coordination of the systems and specialist departments involved, detailed conception of the adjustments in the incoming document system (modified MSCONS, COMDIS) and the detailed conception of the adjustments in the master data application (technical structure (measurement concept). Further plans that will be made are the supply of the new system structure (measurement data system MDM) with master data, the extension to the EDI data hub, the market message processing as well as integration into the process flows of the master data system) and the requirement definition for the new MDM solution. Workshops are held with the customer's internal IT department as well as the affected specialist departments to ensure targeted implementation. The fulfillment of requirements takes place after coordination with the specialist department and IT.
