Perenco use Transport Expresso to manage complex SAP changes

How Perenco achieved more frequent SAP releases

About Perenco

Perenco is an independent oil & gas company with operations in 15 countries across the globe, ranging from Northern Europe to Africa and from South America to Southeast Asia. Perenco is involved in operations both onshore and offshore.

While Perenco's growth has been driven by acquisitions, the Group's strategy evolved rapidly towards increasing production and reserves, renewing licenses and securing additional acreage for new exploration and development opportunities.

key challenges

With 17 different development clients – one in each operational country - they required custom enhancements in order to distribute transports across the appropriate QA, Training and Production systems based on configurable rules.

With system stability a major business objective, Perenco needed a change control tool that would de-risk the movement of transports across their ECC6 system.

They also had a backlog of transports that the business wanted to push into Production. They needed to ensure that they had sufficiently thorough insight into the complex underlying dependencies, by automating their analysis checks.

How did we help?

Perenco heard about the benefits of the DevOps toolset through their existing VAR partner, PASàPAS, and implemented their chosen SAP change and release tool - Transport Expresso.

What was achieved?

  • Perenco now has better visibility and auditability of all SAP change being delivered throughout their ECC6 landscape by their various development clients and in-house teams.
  • OneStep Back Out provides an additional safety net in the event of a Production outage.
  • Analysis Checks remove the ongoing risk of overtaking/leap-frogging transports and ensure a smooth flow of changes.
