IT services vendor Wipro has clinched a seven-year contract with Xoserve, an information and data service provider for gas transporters and shippers in Britain.
Wipro said its IT contract is part of the UK Link Programme which will involve the replacement of Xoserve’s two decade old legacy UK Link suite of applications by enterprise applications with the latest technologies. The main aim of UK Link is to ensure the smooth running of Britain’s competitive gas market using IT.
The new platform will enable Xoserve to meet the expected demand growth generated by the roll-out of Smart Meters in the United Kingdom as well as enable Xoserve to be more responsive to changes in the gas market.
Ability to receive and store more meter readings; introduce more flexibility in system enhancement and reporting and the ability for the gas market to utilize information from smart meters for the benefit of customers are some of the demands of customers.
