Italian gas and electricity provider

Is it possible to transform an entire business in just 15 months?

Industry: Utilities
Region: Italy

With Atos, that’s exactly what an Italian gas and electricity provider has achieved using DORA (Digital Operations for Retailers by Atos), a game-changing digital platform for gas and electricity companies.


As well as being Europe’s first full SAP S/4 HANA implementation, our customer´s digital transformation with DORA delivered immediate financial benefits in a deregulated market. By integrating and accelerating processes across the business, DORA is enabling this company to enhance its customer service, optimize its operations and stay fit for the future.

The challenge


In today’s highly disrupted Italian energy sector, every company needs to be flexible and lean while offering great customer experiences and innovative services. In order to pursue its growth strategy and increase market share, our customer needed to digitally transform its operations within a short timescale. To advance these ambitions, they chose Atos as a partner, together with Atos’ comprehensive framework for energy companies, DORA.
