US-based oilfield services company Schlumberger has partnered with Google Cloud to speed up and modernise its transition to SAP in the cloud.

With the partnership, Google Cloud has become Schlumberger’s cloud provider for critical IT services and infrastructure to support its finance, supply chain, and human resources applications from SAP.

As part of its enterprise-wide SAP migration, Schlumberger has deployed more than 200 applications onto Google Cloud.

The applications include SAP systems for ERP, Supply Chain Management, Human Capital Management, Process Orchestration, Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence, as well as Business Planning and Consolidation and others.

Google Cloud’s live migration capabilities are expected to benefit Schlumberger, as they help in ensuring zero downtime during updates and modifications to its underlying infrastructure.

Schlumberger CIO Sebastien Lehnherr said: “Maintaining the highest levels of uptime while providing seamless access to IT services for employees at locations around the world is critical to our business at Schlumberger.

“We have enterprise-class requirements for highly-available and resilient SAP infrastructure, and with that in mind, we are partnering with Google Cloud as our cloud provider of choice for SAP.”

In May 2019, Schlumberger expanded its agreement with Google Cloud to develop cloud-native exploration and production (E&P) applications.

The partnered was renewed to enable its customers to gain actionable insights from data and harness the power of Google’s cloud infrastructure and artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities.

To help customers in speeding up oil and gas discovery, the company expanded petrotechnical workloads running on the Google Cloud platform.

Schlumberger has also expanded its partnership with technology giant Microsoft in March this year, to provide advanced technologies to the energy industry.

The first offering that has been launched through the expanded partnership is the Schlumberger Enterprise Data Management Solution for the OSDU Data Platform.

The solution is an AI-enhanced package of products and services developed for the OSDU Data Platform.
