Subsea 7 to migrate its SAP enterprise resource system to public cloud

Business Situation

This world-leading seabed-to-surface engineering, construction and services contractor to the offshore energy industry, looked to leverage greater efficiencies and cost savings from its SAP system. “Under the challenging market conditions it is key that Subsea 7 provisions a SAP landscape capable of flexing to our needs whilst driving greater efficiencies within the business,” said Euan Davidson, SAP and Business Solutions Director, Subsea 7.


Avanade is teaming up with Microsoft to design and implement the infrastructure in the cloud environment including all virtual machines, monitoring and security. The new solution is being implemented by Accenture and Avanade and features SAP Suite for HANA on Microsoft Azure to take advantage of the latest technologies that deliver greater efficiencies.
