Accenture has partnered with Equinor, an international energy company, to migrate Equinor’s SAP software environment to Microsoft Azure public cloud, Accenture reported on Thursday.

 “Accenture is excited to support Equinor in its SAP journey to the cloud. This is a prerequisite 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. 

Under the partnership, Accenture will support 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. Accenture will direct its efforts toward Equinor’s Cloud Management. 

Accenture will also manage Equinor’s SAP systems from on-premise data centers to the Microsoft Azure cloud to simplify IT operations in a cloud environment. Accenture will use myWizard, its proprietary intelligent automation platform, to automate processes across the enterprise. 

“Working together with Accenture we are helping to simplify and accelerate our customer’s journey of moving their SAP systems to Microsoft Azure to help realize the benefits of the cloud,” Gjert Terje Gjersvik, SAP’s global account director for Equinor, said.
