Datamere’s Latest Recruit.

Posted on:

We’ve recently been joined in the Datamere Office by Sharon Meehan who has taken on the Project Co-ordinator role within the business. Sharon joined us in May this year and has been instrumental in structuring the new and ongoing projects within Datamere. It’s a brand-new role created to manage the ever-increasing workload within the team and most importantly, to provide clients with clear and measurable milestones that we are all working towards.

Sharon has a wealth of experience in this area having worked in the IT industry for 25 years, providing customer support and managing projects for a range of different companies including Sungard, AstraZeneca and BASF.

She will be working closely with all clients (with an ongoing project), and capture business changes and service issues while offering root cause analysis to reduce the level of any ‘unknowns’.  Additionally, Sharon will act as a dedicated point of contact in order to ensure we are meeting the needs and requirements of our broad customer base.

On a personal level Sharon enjoys cycling, socialising, and walking Freddie the dog. She likes to set herself regular challenges with two planned for 2018; running the Manchester 10k race and cycling from Manchester to Blackpool! Continue reading »

GENUS© – Working with the DCC

Posted on:

With DCC go live confirmed as November 2017 for independent suppliers, Datamere Software are developing their own interface for GENUS©, communicating with the CGI Adaptor procured by TMA Data Services.  The Shared Services Solution offered by TMA offers GENUS© users a fully comprehensive, cost effective,managed route to communicate with the DCC.

The Shared Services agreement has been specifically developed for the smaller, independent supplier network  and assists them with connecting to the new DCC infrastructure relating to Smart Metering. In order to operate Smart Meters and therefore comply with the new legislation,  suppliers have to connect to the infrastructure provided by the Data Communications Company (DCC). This requires significant capital investment, often challenging to independent market participants who may be in the early stages of developing their supply business. Shared Services allows TMA to host and operate the entire range of DCC services on behalf of the Suppliers, without them having to make significant investment.

The agreement also includes TMA undertaking User Entry Process Testing (UEPT) on behalf of users.

“In order to identify the best solution for DCC readiness, we undertook extensive research to find the best turn key solution available for our clients. The flexibility of the Shared Services agreement from TMA allows our clients to either use a managed service for the communication or alternatively use the interface directly from GENUS©”
