To support solid growth projected for the coming years, TOTAL Combustíveis wanted to move its ERP environment to the cloud and look for a partner to manage it for them. The strategy would help the Brazilian-based distributor deliver timely and robust support to its U.S. facilities, which have no access to local (in-house) technical environments. In addition, the cloud solution, built on the SAP S/4 HANA for Oil and Gas ERP platform, would drive budgetary and operational gains in the long-term.
To fulfill its vision, TOTAL needed to adopt new business practices, upgrade legacy infrastructure, restructure shared services and adopt a world-class ERP solution. Avanade was selected as a business partner thanks to our technology and industry know-how, and proven ability to enable a cloud journey for long-term, sustainable growth.
Avanade’s experienced team deployed the Azure infrastructure supporting the SAP environment in record time – just two weeks. The change to the cloud had no impact on end-user experience, as if it was running locally.
Avanade will be responsible for managing the entire customer infrastructure with 24x7 support for five years, supporting the development environment, quality and production. Through our managed services, Avanade will support the client by automating processes and systems and reducing TOTAL Combustíveis’ exposure to fiscal and financial risks. With the adoption of a robust, secure and scalable platform, it will be possible to support the company’s growth in the coming years by investing in SAP S/4 HANA, Mastersaf’s fiscal solution and LG System’s People Management solutions.Learn more about how Avanade’s cloud services expertise can support your business growth.
