The UK gas industry’s UK Link System, a new IT platform delivered by Xoserve to manage the supply point administration process and data exchange with the industry, is underpinned by AMT-SYBEX’s, Affinity Marketflow. This is a unique market interaction and data management platform designed specifically to handle the complexities of the UK energy market.
This huge transformation project has been years in the planning and affects the entire industry. Not only is Marketflow central to the UK Link system, but it is also being used as the market interaction solution for the majority of the data flows being sent to this system from the industry’s gas shippers, who have deployed Marketflow to provide visibility and control of their market communication. The new system supports key processes such as change of supplier, settlement and the increased consumption data made available from smart metering.
Marketflow is fundamental to the exchange of dataflows for the industry and is proven to process huge volumes of data, particularly volumes associated with smart meters.
The new UK Link System went live on June 1 2017.
