Continental ResourcesContinental Resources reduces SAP development risk and provides better governance
A Top 10 independent oil producer in the United States, Continental Resources is the largest leaseholder and producer in the nation’s premier oil field. With a focus on the exploration and production of oil, Continental is on a mission to unlock the technology and resources vital to American energy independence.
Continental Resources needed an SAP change control tool that could provide full audit, governance, risk and security capabilities to meet its statutory reporting commitments. The company also wanted to automate its SAP change and release management process to ensure high quality SAP development, significantly reducing the risk of system downtime.
Our Solution - ActiveControl
With a proven track record in other large oil & gas companies and a complete, automated audit trail of all SAP change control and approvals, ActiveControl provided the perfect solution. Trawling through emails to find approvals during audits, meant transport management was consuming too much of Basis time, impacting on streamlined governance. ActiveControl automatically sends e-mail notifications to the relevant people as soon as a change requires approval or testing.
Continental Resources has increased the quality of its SAP development, by shifting testing left, and reduced the development risk as the tool automatically handles large volumes of transports and extensive changes to the SAP landscape preventing errors that could occur if undertaken manually. Approval processes are simplified and shortened helping Continental Resources adhere to the audit processes. Visibility of all SAP landscapes can be easily accessed from a single dashboard.
