Use comprehensive information systems and unified infrastructure solutions that can be replicated and scaled for the future growth of Naftogaz Group companies' business and production processes
During the implementation of SAP products, Naftogaz was the first company that switched to specialized cloud service instead of buying physical servers.
Naftogaz Group companies are implementing SAP S/4HANA enterprise management system, SAP Business Planning and Consolidation (SAP BPC), and a centralized management system for regulatory reference information based on SAP Master Data Governance (SAP MDG).
After the introduction of SAP BPC, the preparation period of consolidated statements decreased by a third. In addition, Naftogaz also automated about 60% of manual payments in preparing consolidated financial statements.
Gas products for Ukrainians
We are working on the most efficient and convenient services for Ukrainians in digital format. In particular, household consumers of natural gas can quickly and easily join GSC "Naftogaz of Ukraine" on the website gas.ua with the help of the application "Diia." The effectiveness of the new solution is that the part of the information that needs to be provided to change the supplier, the customer can upload to the application form automatically after confirmation in the mobile application "Diia." In addition, the client's use of this service eliminates the requirement to add scan-certificates RNOKPP (formerly - TIN, individual tax number) in the application.
Megapolis document management system
With the help of EDS (electronic digital signature), Naftogaz employees can sign documents without reference to the office in the Megapolis system. Thus, we care about the planet, save paper, and see the cycle of documents in corporate nature.
Centralization of solutions from Microsoft
We integrate Microsoft 365 services using cloud technologies. Thanks to this process, the company was able to unite communication channels for its employees and significantly increase information security. In addition, modern services allowed the Naftogaz team to stay in touch during the pandemic and work without business losses.
Creating an ETRM ecosystem
The Energy Trading & Risk Management (ETRM) project accelerates commercial decision-making by forming a single database of counterparties, contracts, and agreements, real-time data exchange between front, middle and back-office functions, and security, compliance, and risk management and financial control.
It helps to increase efficiency, transparency, and control of gas trading operations and improve commercial risk management and quality of management decisions. For example, earlier, it took about 20 signatures and several days to agree on one contract for the sale or purchase of gas; now, this process is as automated as possible and takes 15-20 minutes.
Moving to the cloud
Previously, Naftogaz's IT infrastructure was placed on its physical servers, which were "morally" outdated and did not meet the needs of modern automated systems. As a result, technical specialists could no longer modernize them and transform the infrastructure simultaneously.
In 2021, we moved Naftogaz's central office's physical and virtual servers to the private PRO Cloud.
PRO Cloud is a physically isolated virtual infrastructure provided to the customer for exclusive use and has the highest level of accessibility and security. Therefore, it is a vital option for companies with critical infrastructures, such as Naftogaz.
