"The implementation of Capgemini's EnergyPath is an important component of our strategy to position the company for long-term growth," said Steven Carter, Chief Information Officer, C&J Energy Services, Inc. "Beyond the immediate efficiencies of consolidation, EnergyPath positions us to leverage emerging digital technologies to better serve customers and support the business as the industry rebounds." EnergyPath also provides an infrastructure that supports C&J's digital transformation efforts as it seeks to grow its business. Enabled by the new system, Capgemini's SAP-certified FieldSite application, which is built on SAP® Cloud Platform, is used by field technicians to transition C&J from its reliance on a paper-based ticketing process. By leveraging the mobile app connected to the cloud, field personnel can more efficiently collect, enter and transmit information. C&J anticipates that FieldSite will provide its customers with a more accurate and readable ticket at the oilfield well site, and synchronize this data for timely and precise billing. It estimates that the application could help reduce the number of days between service delivery and payment – known as day's sales outstanding – which could significantly reduce working capital. "Market conditions have forced oil and gas companies to re-examine how they do business from an operational and customer experience perspective," said Brad Little, Executive Vice President and Head of Capgemini's Energy & Utility Sector, North America. "The EnergyPath implementation is a significant step in C&J's broader digital transformation efforts, and we look forward to helping them navigate the journey."

Kai Grambow, Global Head of Automotive at Capgemini, said: "We are currently experiencing a golden age of car sales, however it's clear that this won't last forever in its current form. Car brands are realizing they need to react to changing consumer habits to sustain growth. Becoming leaders in car sharing and the broader mobility space will not just create new revenue streams for car manufacturers, but will also allow brands to raise awareness and establish a new kind of relationship with consumers as they decide on their next model to purchase."

OSIsoft LLC, an SAP Solex partner, today announced that it will participate at SAPPHIRE NOW® and ASUG Annual Conference being held May 16–18 in Orlando, Florida in booth #1331. SAP HANA IoT Integrator breaks down data silos by automating the process of bringing data from machinery, SCADA systems, IoT gateways and other operational devices to SAP applications. SAP HANA IoT Integrator cleans, augments, shapes and transmits data from OSIsoft’s PI System for use and consumption in SAP HANA, SAP Predictive Maintenance and Service and other SAP Leonardo applications. With SAP HANA IoT Integrator, for instance, financial departments can obtain production data across multiple plants from the OSIsoft PI System and combine it with sales and shipping data to analyze productivity. Supply Chain departments, likewise, can use SAP HANA IoT Integrator to fuse real-time data more easily into shipping schedules. The new version of SAP HANA IoT Integrator, announced at SAP’s SAPPHIRE event, accelerates insights by supporting streaming and dynamic updates. The first version of the integration technology, debuted in 2015, was designed to harvest OSIsoft PI System data at intervals created by users, i.e. every minute or fifteen minutes. The new version provides flexibility to send data whenever new data is generated or in predetermined timeframes, ensuring that users can choose the most efficient view into their operations. SAP HANA IoT Integrator has already been adopted in several industries including renewables, oil and gas and manufacturing. To accelerate the digital transformation and leverage the innovation quicker, mutual OSIsoft and SAP partners, like Capgemini and Critigen have built additional use cases. “Data scientists often spend more than 50% of their time on ‘data janitor’ tasks like preparing and organizing data and it’s often the least enjoyable part of their work. As a result, Big Data and digital transformation often can take far longer and cost far more than necessary,” said Aaron Pratt, Director, IoT/Global Channels. “We’re very excited to be working with SAP to simplify the process and give more people the ability to tap into the vital signs of their company.” The announcement was made at SAP’s annual customer event, SAPPHIRE, taking place in Orlando, Florida. A large upstream oil producer will be on hand to discuss the results at the OSIsoft booth #1331. OSIsoft will also be at the Critigen booth #986C demonstrating how OT data from the PI System can be used to enable geospatial views and enhance work management as well as at the Capgemini booth #300 demonstrating how OT data from the PI System can be used to create the Digital Control Room for upstream oil & gas. The Life of PI System The PI System is one of the world’s most widely used technologies for the Industrial Internet of Things. Over 1,000 leading utilities, 95 percent of the largest oil and gas companies and more than 65 percent of the Fortune 500 industrial companies, rely on the high-fidelity insights from the PI System to manage their businesses. The PI System can be found behind the scenes at offshore wind farms, pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities and municipal water networks, among other facilities, ensuring safety and quality of service. Worldwide, PI Systems collectively manage over 1.5 billion sensor-based data streams. About SAPPHIRE NOW® SAPPHIRE NOW® and the ASUG Annual Conference are the world’s premier business technology event and largest SAP customer-run conference, offering attendees the opportunity to learn and network with customers, SAP executives, partners and experts across the entire SAP ecosystem.

Wärtsilä Corporation, Press release, 29 May 2017 at 10 am EET The technology group Wärtsilä is currently implementing a digital transformation to become a data led, insights driven, and agile technology company dedicated to taking a leadership role in the smart marine and smart energy ecosystems throughout their entire lifecycle. The aim is to increase efficiency while enabling a zero emissions society. Following the appointment of Chief Digital Officer (CDO) and Executive Vice-President Marco Ryan in September 2016, Wärtsilä has taken several actions to speed up the developments achieved during the last decade. The focus is on future technology, notably the use of artificial intelligence, data analytics, open platforms, block chain and cyber security, as well as on creating new business models. Wärtsilä's leadership position in these ecosystems will be built on its unique market position, which is based on deep customer understanding, predictive analytics and asset optimization skills, a global service network, an extensive product range, and engineering and technology expertise. "Digital disruption is already affecting the energy and marine sectors and will do so increasingly in the future. We are building on decades of expertise in digital development and accelerating the pace at which we build new digital solutions, services and opportunities for our customers. Wärtsilä's recent acquisitions of Eniram and Greensmith demonstrate Wärtsilä's ambitions and active role in helping its customers to benefit from smart technology initiatives," says Marco Ryan. To accelerate this digital transformation, Wärtsilä has recruited a highly qualified digital leadership team, and has established a new digital organisation with more than 400 existing Wärtsilä employees. Ms Selina Heiska has been appointed as Vice President, Digital Transformation and is responsible for leading the culture change programme and transformation communications teams. Selina joins Wärtsilä from Capgemini, where her title was Director, Digital. Mr Mikko Tepponen has been appointed as Vice President, Digital Portfolio Management. He is responsible for Wärtsilä's digital service portfolio and its development. Previously Tepponen led the Wärtsilä Services' digitalisation team. Mr Toby White has been appointed as Vice President, Digital Engineering as of 12 June, and in this role he leads software engineering, emerging technologies and asset management. Toby joins Wärtsilä from GlobalData where he has acted as Group Chief Technology Officer, CTO. As part of the Digital transformation, particular emphasis is being given to cyber security. Accordingly, the cyber security team is being considerably strengthened across Cyber Assurance, Cyber Operations, Cyber Policy, Information security and Cyber-as-a Service. The key appointments so far made include Mr Andrew Ross as Director, Cyber Assurance and Mr Kim Eklund as Director, Cyber-as-a-Service. In addition, newly appointed Heads of Digital will be responsible for furthering digital initiatives and strategies in each of the business divisions. Mr Andrea Morgante has been appointed Head of Digital in Marine Solutions, and Mr Saku Mäihäniemi as Head of Digital in Services as of 1 June. Heiska, Tepponen, White, Morgante and Mäihäniemi will be part of Wärtsilä's digital management team, led by the CDO, Marco Ryan. Wärtsilä has already announced two additional Vice President positions in the digital organisation and will announce dozens of new vacancies in 2017, including other management positions. In addition to building a dedicated organisation, Wärtsilä is also encouraging all of the company's employees to personally drive the digital transformation. In May 2017 500 Wärtsilä colleagues from 33 countries, along with the Board of Management, attended an internal event  in Munich, Germany to kick-off the next chapter in Wärtsilä's digital journey. To develop digital services and products in a more agile way, Wärtsilä will launch digital acceleration centres globally. In the centres, Wärtsilä takes promising ideas and transforms them into service concepts and products, co-creating the solutions with customers and partners.

Wärtsilä is listed on Nasdaq Helsinki. www.wartsila.com


PARIS & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Open Banking1 evolution continues to unfold. Banks risk disintermediation2 if they do not carefully 1) choose their customer-interaction business model role, and 2) use application programming interfaces (APIs)3, according to the World Retail Banking Report 2017 (WRBR 2017) from Capgemini and Efma. Banks, in collaboration with FinTechs, can lead the Open Banking movement by offering their customer bases innovative and personalized services that create new revenue streams and provide more value to customers. “ FinTechs are now earning higher positive customer experience scores than traditional banks, and banks are openly seeking to collaborate with FinTechs. Open Banking offers banks an opportunity to retain and grow their customer base as they add the varied services of third parties to personalize and customize products and services. For banks that don’t think strategically and establish a role in Open Banking, there is a chance they will be disintermediated from their customers,” said Anirban Bose, Global Head of Banking and Capital Markets, Capgemini. “ It is imperative that banks consider business transformation approaches now, to establish and solidify their long-term base in Open Banking.” The WRBR 2017 details how APIs offer a pathway toward Open Banking, where FinTechs and financial institutions collaborate rather than compete to create customer-centric solutions. Though APIs raise some security and privacy concerns, they are seen as crucial in allowing banks to take advantage of FinTech ingenuity without having to make major changes to existing infrastructures. “The most successful banks will use open APIs to generate new customer insights and revenue streams, while also improving customer experience,” said Vincent Bastid, Secretary General, Efma. “Many banks currently use APIs internally to improve information flow between legacy systems. In fact, we are already seeing early adopter banks asserting their role in Open Banking by proactively making their systems and data available to third parties and creating new revenue streams.” Collaboration Is Key to the Future of Open Banking Exactly how the evolution toward Open Banking will play out is far from clear. A majority of FinTech respondents (53.8 percent) and banks (43.5 percent) envision a future in which banks and FinTechs work together to build cross-industry platforms with bundled, complementary services that benefit customers. A less likely but still plausible outcome is that banks will continue to provide products and services but leave distribution to FinTechs, BigTech, or other new open platforms. This has the potential to lower customer acquisition costs but raises issues related to disintermediation branding and customer ownership. Nearly half (47.8 percent) of FinTechs predict this future scenario compared to only 28.8 percent of banks. This year’s WRBR also quantified the robust appetite for closer partnerships between FinTechs and banks going forward. The vast majority of banks (91.3 percent) and most FinTechs (75.3 percent) say they expect to collaborate in the future, with banks providing access to their broad resources, experience and expertise, and FinTechs offering agility, speed to market and a fresh take on customer-centricity. By working together and taking advantage of APIs, banks and FinTechs can leverage their complementary strengths, enhancing the customer experience much more than each entity could do on its own. “We work with clients every day who tell us that they are looking to better understand the roles they should play as these new business models take shape; everything from the investment necessary to how to engage with these new players. Many understand that Open Banking is the new normal, but they are still unclear about how to proceed,” said Bose. “We are helping our clients see first-hand just how Open Banking opportunities are improving their product portfolio and distribution networks, as well as creating new revenue streams, while minimizing the risk of customer disintermediation.” FinTechs Earning Higher Marks in Customer Experience and Collaboration is Key FinTech companies have done a good job of cracking the code on what customers want, which presents a threat to bank-customer relationships, the report found. BigTech companies like Amazon, Apple and Facebook are conditioning customers to expect more from their banks and the experience they provide. Because of this, customers are embracing FinTechs, with 40.3 percent saying they deliver a positive experience, compared to 37.1 percent who say banks do. FinTechs are most popular in North America, where 57.8 percent of customers say they offer a positive experience, compared to 49.5 percent who cite banks. Globally, customers who are young and tech-savvy are the most likely to turn to FinTechs. APIs make it easier to create innovative and valuable customer experiences by pooling the collective tribal knowledge of banks and FinTechs. Challenges to Open Banking development include the need for governance and consistent technology standards. Additionally, banks must determine their role in Open Banking, how to effectively personalize customer data, and how to prepare for new revenue opportunities. This year’s World Retail Banking Report explores how APIs foster business and technology outcomes that enable productive collaboration among diverse stakeholders. It features data from a global survey and interviews with senior executives from 126 banks and FinTechs. For more information visit www.worldretailbankingreport.com and www.efma.com/WRBR2017.

Paris, May 02, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Capgemini, a global leader in consulting, technology and outsourcing services, and Experitest, one of the world's leading providers of quality assurance tools for mobile DevOps, announced today the availability of the financial services industry’s first cloud-hosted, on demand, mobile applications testing lab. The new lab enables financial service providers to validate and monitor all digital mobile applications on a continuous “24/7’ basis, resulting in optimized mobile application quality and estimated cost savings of up to 50 percent. “Mobile applications offer flexibility and ease of use.  Innovation in testing mobile applications must also provide flexibility and convenience, and this cloud-hosted mobile lab transforms how these apps can be tested,” said Anand Moorthy, Vice President, Capgemini’s Financial Services. “Working with our alliance partner, Experitest, affords us the opportunity to leverage their extensive array of tools to deliver our clients a seamless development, testing, and production cycle which can transform their business.” Client mobile digital DevOps teams including Quality Assurance (QA), and Production and Development essentially “rent” the lab — the mobile devices and tools package — as needed on a pay-by-use basis.  They can quickly set up a “private lab bench” that can comprise of a variety of digital devices, including all the latest smartphones, tablets, and wearable devices such as iOS, Android, Windows Phone and Blackberry. The lab, which is based on the SeeTestCloud platform by Experitest, allows these teams to remotely access mobile devices from anywhere at any time. The entire environment is isolated  within Capgemini’s virtual private network and provides testers with high speed performance. The lab integrates seamlessly with Experitest’s end-to-end suite of tools, as well as any automation or development open source environment. This enables complete mobile application testing including functional, performance and compatibility testing, while using manual testing or test automation. "The Capgemini mobile device hosted cloud dedicated for the financial services industry is a unique offering for banks, insurance companies, and other financial services enterprises. The core capabilities of functional and performance testing are fully integrated into the CI/CD flow of these organizations, creating seamless cooperation between mobile app developers, QA, and operations - making the agile release of high-quality mobile apps a reality.” said Tal Barmeir, Experitest CEO. The new lab enables CI/CD (continuous integration, continuous deployment) and allows fully automated 24/7 continuous testing. Client teams can seamlessly integrate into any continuous integration environment to directly manage their test executions and run their automated tests in parallel. They can consolidate all of their test results into a centralized test analytics system and even share same devices with development teams for quicker bug resolution. All of this adds up to shortened testing cycles and accelerated time to market. The resources of this lab represent the latest in a series of Capgemini software-testing offerings that use Experitest SeeTest tools, underscoring the value that the two companies have delivered to clients since formalizing their mobile-testing solutions alliance in 2015.
