Supporting Global Enterprise Systems at Offshore Oil & Gas Leader

| Client story

Collaboration between Subsea 7 and Capgemini in the UK and India delivers mission-critical SAP system with sound Applications Management.

“ We are delighted that the combined Capgemini and Subsea 7 project team have completed this mission-critical system build on time, in budget and fully up to our expectations. ”Graeme Smith, Project Manager, Subsea 7

The Situation

Subsea 7, a global sub-sea engineering and construction contractor, sought a new enterprise-wide IT system to support its strategy for growth and expansion.

The new system would replace earlier-generation SAP facilities provided to Subsea 7 by a former major shareholder. Collaboration with Capgemini ensued via a “build and run” contract.

The Solution

Capgemini’s Rightshore® strategy was a key success factor. Much of the development effort was carried out at Capgemini’s Advanced Development Centers in Mumbai and Bangalore.

The new system is based on mySAP ERP including modules for Finance, HR, Payroll, Materials Management, Production Planning, Plant Maintenance and Project Systems. It incorporates SAP NetWeaver technology supported by Business Warehouse, Enterprise Portal and SAP Mobility.  

The systems are hosted from a Capgemini secure data center in Rotherham, UK, with applications support provided from India. Continuity is served by the development team delivering ongoing Applications Management services.

The Result

Key features of the new system include support for real-time monitoring of compliance with audit trails. For added value, there is enhanced support for mobile computing to serve Subsea 7 teams working aboard offshore structures and vessels at sea.
