Upgrading IT infrastructure, reducing operational costs and increasing flexibility
A global oil and gas service supplier operating across 4 global regions and with a team of over 1,000.
Our client has a strong technology and engineering investment ethos to help drive operational efficiency and drive down costs.
Our client had identified that its existing IT infrastructure required upgrade.
IT operational costs were significant, and the lack of flexibility did not support the integration and global interoperability requirements of company’s technology roadmap.
Solution & Benefits

We worked closely with existing IT teams across 4 global regions to understand in-depth requirements and conduct a complete audit of existing capability. This audit shaped the company’s 4 infrastructure upgrade requirements.
The programme was co-managed by our client and A&O IT Group from a join project office location.
