Electricity and gas retailer Energy Australia is deploying application network platform vendor MuleSoft’s anypoint plaform enabling it to offer omnichannel services to consumers and to provide a 360 degree view of each customer and their energy consumption.

The deployment will help EnergyAustralia streamline connectivity between disparate systems where it currently holds customer data, such as information siloed in smart metering and billing systems.

Will Bosma, vice-president of Asia Pacific, MuleSoft, says the deployment will enable EnergyAustralia to efficiently unlock the data and, by taking an API-led approach to connectivity, will be able to rapidly build innovative customer experiences, such as delivering local weather forecasts to help consumers manage their energy consumption.

“As energy moves from being a commodity to a consumable good, EnergyAustralia is positioning itself at the forefront of digital transformation to ensure that consumers have visibility into and control over their energy decisions.

“Consumers expect a 360 view of their account and their energy consumption. APIs enable the real-time connectivity consumers are demanding.”

It quickly affected many systems with hackers requiring users to pay money for the decryption keys.
