On 15 and 16 May 2017 we held our annual energy customer event in Leipzig, which this year went by its new name of EXXETA User Forum Energy for the first time. The event touched on various topics – among them the energy marketplace E-Point, cloud computing and the new EXXETA overview of energy trading solutions – that provided stimulating impulses among participants.
In keeping with last year, the programme was opened jointly by Dr Peter Heine and Achim Kirchgässner, two of the members of EXXETA AG’s management board, who took up right where we had left off the year before, bringing the audience up to speed on the developments at EXXETA over the previous months and showing them what our clients can expect from us going forward. The first day touched on various topics – among them the energy marketplace E-Point, cloud computing and the new EXXETA overview of energy trading solutions – that provided stimulating impulses and facilitated lively discussions among participants.
In the foyer we held touch screens available for our clients to browse through our EXXETA Energy Portfolio, with our multimedia presentation “Innovation at EXXETA” informing them about further innovative projects. One of these is the E-Point project we are currently implementing with energy supplier GVS GasVersorgung Süddeutschland GmbH, which caught the interest of many participants. Guest logins allowed them to take a closer look at this new energy marketplace built on the EXXETA Platform Suite. Another theme we pursued in the foyer was “Your hack. Your innovation”, under which we presented another exciting project: eHack. Our Energy Consulting team support clients in designing and holding their own hackathons, and seized the opportunity to draw attention to this service.
With “EXXETA meets Microsoft”, IoT, EXXETA Power, ATLAS, algorithmic trading, Docker, AMONT and agile project management on the agenda, the second day again held a diverse and interesting programme. Other than the sharing of industry news and developments our clients especially value the conversation opportunities presenting themselves during the breaks and the evening programme, which always round off this successful event. We select different locations each year so that our guests can get the full experience of the diverse city of Leipzig. It is in this spirit that we look forward to continue working with our clients to create and deepen long-standing customer relationships.
