SaskPower provides electricity to nearly half a million Saskatchewan customer accounts, often across stretches of thinly populated, undeveloped terrain, over one of the most extensive networks of power lines in western Canada. In order to deliver power effectively and cost-efficiently, SaskPower needed a way to quickly and accurately share information enterprisewide. It also required a large investment in data systems. SaskPower turned to HP. HP's first priority was delivering critical IT services, including daily administration and management of the midrange and database systems that powered the utility's SAP enterprise solution. HP was able to address potential problems before they negatively affect SaskPower's business operations.
