FPT to Provide SAP AMS Service for E.ON

FPT Europe – a subsidiary of FPT Corporation, the global technology service provider, today announced that FPT Europe and E.ON have concluded a 3 -year-contract for SAP related services. FPT will provide Application Managed Service (AMS) for three systems of E.ON’s ERP, including an S/4-based one. These systems are currently supporting 16,000 users from 8 countries across Europe..

Milestone for FPT and E.ON

With this initiative we will optimize our current sourcing mix in order to achieve not only cost savings but to consolidate suppliers in the area of application maintenance and support. We see this as an enabler for service and process harmonization and integration of E.ON and innogy IT processes. Furthermore, the new setup will strengthen the BizDevOps model within E.ON by closely integrating external resources into cross-functional teams,“ explained Mr. Wendiggensen, Vendor and IT Transformation Manager at E.ON Digital Technology GmbH, the main objectives of the contract.

The contract marks an important milestone of the cooperation for both sides. Since 2020, FPT has helped E.ON to increase cost efficiency of their SAP CORE domain with the ongoing S/4 projects.

We are pleased to serve our client in one of their business-critical domains. It shows that our long-term strategic partnership is really a win-win collaboration in mutual benefit for both sites. We will continue to develop our strong presence in SAP domain as this belongs to our long-term digital transformation strategy.“ said Emil Figura, FPT Executive Account Manager for E.ON.

Fpt Slovakia has a commitment

This is a great responsibility for Fpt Slovakia, as it will deliver application support and extend the standard SAP ECC and SAP S / 4 HANA modules, as well as SAP BW, SAP HANA BW and Ariba.

I am honored that EON has chosen FPT as a reliable strategic partner. I am very pleased that one of the crucial factors in decision making is the high quality of my colleagues' work of our SAP teams in Prague and Košice", said Tran Coi, CEO of FPT Slovakia. "This contract, with a value of several million euros, represents another step for our nearshore centers to transform the company from a supplier of resources to a supplier of end services and solutions with more added value, including those for SAP S/4HANA.

We have our own IoT solution to measure temperature.

We have our own IoT solution to measure temperature.

We have developed our own, affordable solution for automated human temperature measurement. Thanks to special sensors and an advanced measurement algorithm, which takes into account the distance of a person and the temperature in the room, it is possible to reconstruct the obtained data into the so-called heatmap and create an image well known from "thermal cameras".

The big advantage is that the device does not use a real camera that would capture the face. Thanks to that, it is secured personal data protection at high level. You will find this device at the entrance to the Fpt Slovakia building. The IoT solution was developed within two weeks by one of our colleagues, an IoT specialist – Tomáš Lörinc.

temperature Tomáš had the idea to create an automated temperature measuring device in his head right at the beginning of the pandemic. However, he decided to implement it only after the April company meeting, at the initiative of colleagues. This is not Tomáš's first IoT project, he has been working in this area for a long time. He worked on this particular one for about 2 weeks. A second prototype is currently being deployed, which was the logical outcome of the internal PoC project.

"Since my area of interest is mainly IoT, connectivity and HW, I would welcome advice from colleagues who are experts in another field. Rado Bálint helped me choose a suitable solution for data visualization."

Of course, there are also ready-made solutions in the form of thermal cameras. However, these are very expensive and their primary purpose is not to measure a person's temperature at the reception. Our solution is more than 10 times cheaper and at the same time tailor-made directly for our needs. The device is connected to the Internet and is able to communicate using the MQTT (SSL) protocol, making it one of the most versatile devices for automated temperature measurement. Last but not least, we care about the protection of personal data, which we thus control Of course, our device can be expanded at the customer's request with a camera with high resolution and face recognition, or a card reader and thus ensure that the temperature is assigned to a specific person,“ Tomáš adds.

We are constantly working to improve the device as well as its detection algorithm. Thanks to OTA updates, we are able to update FW devices even remotely. Tomáš sees other possibilities of use in the area of monitoring desk occupancy, which is currently a very popular segment. Thanks to a sufficient viewing angle, one sensor would be able to replace several motion sensors currently used for this purpose. Another possible area of use is the monitoring of premises with the remaining demand for personal data protection. For example, some airlines have a problem with the on-board toilet being used by more than one person at a time, the so-called Mile High Club. Such a sensor can unambiguously determine the number of people without invading privacy and notify on-board personnel.

Our company has been working on innovative projects for a long time and supports creative people, said Jozef Vojtko, Vice Director of Fpt Slovakia. And stated further that the crisis gave way to new technologies, innovative ideas, and at the same time accelerated their implementation in practice.

It doesn't always have to be big international things. Our colleagues proved it on several examples, either by automating internal processes or by automated temperature measurement. Tomas is an excellent example of this.
