Shell has signed a long-term contract with SAP to help get more value from its current SAP investments and accelerate its transition to SAP HANA data analytics in the cloud.
Shell is a longstanding SAP customer and this latest agreement extends the relationship between the two companies through to the end of the decade.
SAP will embed a team of its experts into the Shell organisation to extend value from its current SAP environment. As a result, said Shell, it will be able to reduce total cost of ownership.
Technologies to be used in the deal include SAP Cloud with SAP HANA, SAP Predictive Analysis software, SAP Fiori user experience and SAP Screen Personas software.
Rob Enslin, president of global customer operations, said: “SAP will improve Shell’s ability to tap into the agility and innovation of the cloud and drive entirely new ways of doing business.”
In 2011, Shell outsourced all its SAP-based HR and payroll application management services to Accenture, covering employee administration, HR self-service, environmental health and payroll.
