GDF SUEZ: Accelerating Cutover by 300% with SAP® MaxAttention™
GDF SUEZ, a major French utility, recently used SAP® MaxAttention™ services to help make the corporate data changes required by a company reorganization. Cutover took just a weekend, compared with six days of downtime on similar projects
in the past. Data quality and robustness were up, and IT eort required was down.

Dynamic business requiring frequent reorganizations
GDF SUEZ is a multinational supplier of electrical power, natural gas, and related services head-quartered in France. Its business model is based on responsible growth, addressing today’s major challenges for the utilities industry: meeting energy
needs, ensuring the security of supply, ghting
climate change, and optimizing the use of resources.
The rm provides highly ecient and innovative
solutions to individuals, cities, and businesses by
relying on diversied gas-supply sources and low-
emission power generation. It has unique expertise
in liqueed natural gas, energy eciency services,
independent power production, and environmental services.GDF SUEZ is a dynamic organization where change is ever-present. Often it undergoes reorganizations because of mergers, acquisitions, subsidiary spin-
os, or simply a desire to improve eciency. These
reorganizations are complex undertakings that
require signicant restructuring of company data.
Every time they happen, IT must make substantial adjustments to corporate databases by splitting
o part of the old data, merging in new data, or
rearranging existing data.In the past, the IT team treated these reorganizations
as essentially one-o events, with little carryover
of data, adaptation tools, and methods from one project to the next. No general framework or
methodology was in place. Thus, the sta built
custom tools that focused on the current case, and
as a result, risks and eort levels were high and robustness of the resulting data suered. Worse,
cutting over from the old data to the revised data took six days – idle time for the entire accounting
sta.
