Accenture Helps Equinor Improve Business Operations and Journey to Cloud

Accenture is helping Equinor, an international energy company, migrate its SAP® software environment to Microsoft Azure public cloud.

This transformational project supports Equinor’s business objectives to optimise IT costs and increase cost transparency by shifting to an agile, high availability and scalable platform for SAP systems.

Accenture will migrate and manage their SAP systems from on-premise data centres to the Microsoft Azure cloud while working closely with Equinor’s Cloud Management team. This will help Equinor run IT operations in a reliable cloud environment that includes embedded security. Accenture will use myWizard, its proprietary intelligent automation platform, to automate processes across the enterprise.

Gunnar Presthus, Accenture’s global client account lead for Equinor, said, “Accenture is excited to support Equinor in its SAP journey to the cloud. This is a pre-requisite for digital transformation, enabling business resilience that is key to navigating a continually changing environment.”

Gjert Terje Gjersvik, SAP’s global account director for Equinor, said, “Working together with Accenture we are helping to simplify and accelerate our customer’s journey of moving their SAP systems to Microsoft Azure to help realize the benefits of the cloud.”

Kimberly Lein-Mathisen, general manager of Microsoft Norway, added, “This is a great example of Accenture playing an important role as a trusted partner, enabling Equinor to reach its goals. Equinor has an important role to play in innovation and in driving Norway’s sustainable growth, and we are very proud to have their SAP solutions running on Azure.”
