The Market Process Manager enables different market participants, such as distribution network operators, suppliers, balancing group managers, metering service providers, metering point operators and transmission system operators, to automate their most important regulatory market communication processes and to implement the legal provisions fully in compliance with market requirements.
We provide a ready-to-run standard solution with a modular design that enables every customer to install the relevant process packages they want. Customers can choose between “integration packages” (purely for processing EDIFACT market communication) and “process packages” (EDIFACT market communication plus complete process handling).
The solution currently covers the market-specific requirements for the German, Austrian and Swiss energy markets.
Every six months, the Market Process Manager is updated to take into account new regulatory requirements and to incorporate new process packages.
A big advantage for our customers is that the Market Process Manager builds on the full inubit BPM solution. This means that we offer our customers a standard solution for handling market communication processes along with the option of expanding the platform if required. This can then be used for further Bosch Software Innovations process requirements, portal solutions and standard solutions. All this is carried out on a single platform, which saves on installation and running costs.
The Market Process Manager is based on the business process management software inubit BPM, which is tried and tested in the energy market. It mediates between the backend systems of our customers and all relevant market partners. This ensures that information is always exchanged in accordance with regulatory requirements. Building on the solution base, customers have different packages to choose from (please see below).
With process and integration packages we are pursuing the approach of a standardized interconnection of our customers’ backend systems. In accordance with your backend system the packages are available both with a direct SAP IS-U connection and with other standard interfaces.
The solution base forms the technical foundation for the Market Process Manager. It contains the energy-market-specific components along with the corresponding check routines for market-compliant message exchange. These are in accordance with the respective country-specific communication requirements. It can be used on its own as a full-scale communication platform.
