CSC can be a force multiplier as oil and gas companies look to drive near-term efficiencies and build a foundation on innovative technologies.
After a decade of false starts, energy industry CIOs are finally on their way to rationalizing their application portfolios, shifting their budgets from cost to investment and bringing new life to their legacy applications. Unfortunately, many energy industry companies are too heavily burdened by the cost and complexity of those legacy applications to take full advantage of exciting new developments. In fact, many oil and gas companies are filled to the brim with myriad aging applications, representing a bewildering array of languages, platforms and standards.
CSC’s PetroEdge solution is tailored to provide oil and gas companies with a competitive edge by rationalizing and modernizing an organization’s application portfolio, allowing it to take more applications to the cloud. The tool reduces complexity and costs and allows businesses to move more nimbly and better leverage next-gen technologies.
Innovate with Next-Gen Technologies
The PetroEdge solution lets oil and gas companies leverage a hybrid cloud solution to reduce costs and improve agility and time-to-value. It comprises a repeatable and proven four-phase framework. The approach drives out near-term costs through an initial assessment; lays a foundation for the future with an enterprise reference architecture and optimized business processes; eliminates redundancies; and increases efficiency through innovative CSC hybrid platform services.
The framework for a typical PetroEdge engagement includes:
- Assessment: During the assessment phase, our oil and gas industry experts perform an assessment of your enterprise portfolio and workflows of the upstream business. Our experts strategically assess the business processes and application portfolio; identify significant IT capability gaps and business impact; define the business case for transformation; complete basic discovery to establish feasibility of moving your application portfolio to the cloud; and identify quick-win candidate projects or areas for focus that will achieve rapid time-to-value.
- Architecture and Roadmap: During the architecture phase, we define a Reference Enterprise Architecture, roadmap and path forward. Our experts work with you to develop the future state architectures to address IT capability gaps and define target architectures encompassing people process and technology. Our objective is to ensure that you achieve incremental time-to-value with each project on the defined roadmap.
- Hybrid Cloud Platform: With an approved reference architecture and roadmap in place, we work with you to establish a hybrid cloud platform based on the reference enterprise architecture. This is a fully governed and secure hybrid cloud platform for the enterprise, including all applicable industry regulatory and organizational requirements. We also build cloud-portable blueprints for applications and platforms, an extensible policy engine for cloud governance and a fully managed as-a-service platform with high SLAs.
- Modernization: During the transformation phase, we perform application and business process modernization according to the roadmap we have jointly defined for your transformation journey. During this phase, our experts migrate your applications and business process to the hybrid cloud platform. The result of this phase is the streamlining of the existing portfolio to improve efficiency, reduce complexity and lower total cost of ownership. We also migrate and modernize applications and data and move to more efficient technology platforms, while replacing or extending applications to address changes in business needs.
