Accenture is helping Equinor, an international energy company, migrate its SAP software environment to Microsoft Azure public cloud, the company said on Aug. 20.

This transformational project supports Equinor’s business objectives to optimize IT costs and increase cost transparency by shifting to an agile, high availability and scalable platform for SAP systems.

Working closely with Equinor’s cloud management team, Accenture will migrate and manage their SAP systems from on-premise data centers to the Microsoft Azure cloud. This will help Equinor run IT operations in a reliable cloud environment that includes embedded security. Accenture will use myWizard, its proprietary intelligent automation platform, to automate processes across the enterprise.

“Accenture is excited to support Equinor in its SAP journey to the cloud. This is a pre-requisite for digital transformation, enabling business resilience that is key to navigating a continually changing environment,” Gunnar Presthus, Accenture’s global client account lead for Equinor, said.
