The Energy Data Management (SAP IS-U-EDM) component is fully integrated into the SAP IS-U system and can be installed in an existing SAP IS-U system as a new component. SAP IS-U-EDM is also integrated into Intercompany Data Exchange (SAP IS-U-IDE). This component allows for data exchange in standardized formats and enables the integration of cross-company business processes. SAP IS-U-EDM allows you to bill profiles in SAP IS-U. Profiles are prepared in SAP IS-U-EDM and transferred to SAP IS-U billing via an internal interface. This allows you to bill new types of contracts, such as spot purchases.
SAP IS-U-EDM also interfaces with automated meter reading systems.
Energy Data Management covers the following areas:
Central database for energy data (Energy Data Repository)
Settlement and scheduling using the settlement workbench
Billing profiles using Real-Time-Pricing Billing

Display profile values in Microsoft® Excel.
Change profile values in Excel and save the changes in an Excel file.
Export profile values (including status) from SAP IS-U-EDM to an Excel file and edit them at your workstation.
