Norwegian energy giant strengthens its strategic partnership with Capgemini for application development and management in multi-million Euro contract
Paris and Oslo, February 18, 2019 – Capgemini has signed a three-year, multi-million Euro contract extension with Equinor, the international energy company with operations in over 30 countries. The extension will see Capgemini deliver Application Development and Maintenance Services to Equinor in order to improve its collaboration and information management, optimize operations and augment innovation.
The contract is an extension of Capgemini’s agreement with Equinor, established in 2014. Capgemini was awarded this extension as a result of the successful fulfillment of the previous five-year contract, further underlining the high-value and well-established strategic partnership between the two parties.
“We are very pleased that Equinor has renewed their trust in us as their long-term partner to enable and transform its IT and applications portfolio. This is a testament to our capability to deliver stable and reliable operations thanks to our competent and highly skilled teams,” says Jens Middborg, Market Unit Director at Capgemini in Norway.
Under the contract, Capgemini will provide application development and maintenance services for solutions in a wide and complex application landscape, as well as for collaboration and information management. Capgemini will support Equinor with processes to streamline demand management, with a focus on improving Equinor’s overall application management. The renewal will help to enable more optimized operations, cost savings, augmented innovation, and an accelerated pace for digital transformation at Equinor globally.
Earlier in 2018, Capgemini and Equinor also signed a three-year strategic framework agreement to further develop and deliver Equinor’s digital roadmap in the areas of process digitization, analytics and robotics, and realize Equinor’s ambition to be a digital leader among the major energy suppliers. Capgemini will use its global breadth of experience across industries and disciplines to support Equinor’s digital transformation through innovative digital solutions.
