Innovation is Driving Growth in the Oil and Gas Sector

Oil and gas companies running on a cloud platform have a competitive advantage that differentiates them not just in terms of reduced hardware and support costs, but from the transformative change that results in operational efficiencies.

Our cloud readiness offerings will help determine whether a cloud solution makes sense for your business. We will:

  • Conduct an on-premises vs. SaaS comparison including application roadmaps
  • Prepare a high-level look at current- and future-state business processes
  • Show 5-year total cost of ownership, including ROI from business transformational opportunities
  • Demonstrate migration time to value and deployment strategies

Proven Methodologies and Results

Once it’s determined that a move to Oracle Cloud is a strategic imperative, we will assess your current applications and processes and help create a roadmap to get you to your ideal future state in the cloud.

We’ll then use our proprietary tools and programs to quickly evaluate current customizations and application configurations to determine whether they can be replaced by standard Oracle Cloud features. These include:

Programs

  • Speed to Value
  • Readiness Workshop

Proprietary Tools (Examples)

  • Python Integration Engine

  • A global energy company with a ROI-driven cloud deployment under a hybrid model that integrates back to on-premises applications
