SAP and Accenture join forces to develop Cloud solution to digitally transform oil and gas upstream operations

IT Intelligence Bulletin (HG Insights) — SAP is expanding its collaboration with Accenture in the oil and gas industry by co-developing an SAP S/4HANA Cloud solution designed to help oil and gas companies significantly cut operational costs and create new revenue opportunities.

In an environment of volatile oil prices, sustained bottom-line pressure, and changing energy portfolios, upstream oil and gas operators are increasingly looking to innovate and simplify operations with standard processes and automation.

The new SAP S/4HANA Cloud solution for oil and gas companies is a portfolio of intelligent cloud services that set new industry standards with more transparency into operations and cash flow through cutting-edge technologies including artificial intelligence (AI), mobility and blockchain. The solution is available via both public and private cloud.
