To set itself on the path to complete IT transformation and reap significant cost savings, a global energy leader with a presence in more than 30 countries was looking for innovative solutions to streamline its core processes and improve application management. The company was also seeking to migrate all SAP applications to S/4HANA and guide the implementation of its digital roadmap to help incubate new digital initiatives and support projects with digital capabilities. To guarantee success, the company reached out to Capgemini for support.

A multi-faceted transformation utilizing ADMnext for SAP Solutions

The Capgemini team began by mapping out how ADMnext for SAP Solutions could help streamline the energy provider’s future digital included three distinct technologies and value-creation priorities for digital transformation: process digitization, advanced analytics, and robotics. These areas were critical in enabling the company to gear up for its path to the future with improvements in customer experience, the digitalization of products and services, the emergence of new economic models, and advances in operations.

When it came to the digitalization of products and services, the Capgemini team’s digital experts offered several key solutions, which spanned data exploration and visualization, statistical modeling, predictive analytics, data engineering, digital strategy, and digital service design. Additionally, utilizing ADMnext for SAP Solutions tools, the Capgemini team provided support for 525 business processes and 125 collaboration and information management applications, and also oversaw the maintenance of IT platforms. The partners also utilized new processes and tools to lower costs by streamlining demand management and reducing the complexity of the application landscape.

The focus was then shifted to service optimization, which entailed beginning the company’s move to a green plan, along with service improvements, automation, an Office 365 implementation, and setting up monitoring activities. A DevOps model was also introduced for the entire scope of the work – and especially for SAP applications and agile deliveries for standalone projects.

Within a broad scope of work, the partners utilized Capgemini’s Design Office to facilitate data exploration and visualization, data engineering, digital strategy, and digital service design. In addition, the company and Capgemini will expand support for statistical modelling and predictive analytics in the future.

Robotics Process Automation (RPA) was utilized to automate drilling, facilitate operation of installations, and centralize operation and support centers. Capgemini’s Supply Chain Portal assisted in streamlining the company’s entire supply chain management function. Overall, this partnership resulted in:

• Rationalization and modernization of the entire IT landscape
