Severn Trent Water implements SAP

Severn Trent Water, a Warwickshire-based utility company, has implemented an SAP business intelligence solution. 

It has taken the opportunity to decommision a mainframe of a type it had been running since the 1980s.

The implementation of SAP left only a small number of applications on the organisation's mainframe.

CTO William Hewish explained that the critical applications needed to be redeveloped in order to be moved off the mainframe. Decommissioning this legacy system has saved the company hundreds of thousands of pounds in running costs.

Longer term, Hewish's strategy is also to consolidate down from five to two datacentres.

Hewish also examined the possibilities offered by big data, with the extensive sensor network he operates throughout the utility firm's network of water pipes.
