Florida Power & Light Generates Growth With SAP
Power Utility Chooses SAP for Utilities to Address Industry Challenges and Opportunities

SAP AG announced that Florida Power & Light Company has selected the SAP for Utilities solution portfolio. FPL will consolidate numerous disparate systems to better manage corporate planning, asset management and compliance reporting, and provide a standard platform to support the company's growth strategy. Expanding on its existing SAP footprint in financials, supply chain and human resources, FPL will standardize on the SAP NetWeaver technology platform to more quickly and easily integrate new systems as its business continues to expand.

"SAP's solution set for utilities, combined with the company's overall industry expertise, provides the tools we need in order to best position our companies for success," said Dennis Klinger, CIO, Florida Power & Light. "Managing assets, reaching customers and enabling corporate executives to make sound decisions for growth are all mission-critical priorities for today's utilities. Our focus is to provide better visibility and access to data and the ability to analyze it so that we can optimize our assets, identify opportunities that make sense and create products and services that our customers demand."

FPL will implement the SAP for Utilities set of solutions to address industry challenges of compliance, performance management and planning. The portfolio will provide better visibility into asset operations, including the operation of the nation's largest wind farm. To facilitate a smooth and rapid transition to SAP solutions for end users, FPL will leverage Duet software from SAP and Microsoft to provide users with access to applications from a familiar Microsoft Office interface.

"Today's utilities are faced with many challenges and opportunities, from creating energy through wind farms to identifying ways to reduce consumption and environmental impact," said Maureen Coveney, industry principal, Utilities, SAP Americas. "Efficient and robust IT solutions are required to help utilities in efforts to please investors, customers and regulators alike. We are proud of SAP's distinguished reputation and leadership in providing the tools best designed for the needs of our more than 1,150 utility customers worldwide."
