As the global need for energy has increased, oil and gas companies around the world strive to respond with new technologies for finding, extracting, and delivering energy to the market. But the industry is complex, and the factors that determine the business success are constantly evolving, making it difficult to remain agile and productive.
If you are an oil or gas company, you most likely are using solutions that help you digitally manage your oil fields and successfully execute environmental, health, and safety programs. You may also have some standard industry solutions that streamline your hydrocarbon supply chain and deliver a wide range of engineering services. And in an ideal world, these solutions deliver cost efficiency and help you lower costs.
But the reality is that your business is unique, even within your own industry and to retain a competitive edge, you need more. You want a solution that maximizes the value of your initial investment and drives innovation. To go beyond what your competition is doing, it’s beneficial to partner with a company like SAP that has deep expertise for your specific industry.
