Companies in the oil and gas industry are facing an increasingly tough global market environment. They have little or no influence on market forces: examples include volatile prices of crude oil, the worldwide increase in energy consumption and compliance with legal requirements. Additional challenges include capital-intensive development projects and the need to ensure secure internal processes. Existing production resources have to be used as efficiently as possible, products need to be delivered according to demand, and outstanding customer service is essential.
There is no doubt: in order to be profitable in the long term, companies have to optimize their internal business processes, keep costs under control and respond to market opportunities quickly. Companies can build up the basis with Sierra as a partner and the SAP for Oil & Gas (SAP IS-Oil) solution.
