Perenco uses ActiveControl to manage complex SAP changes

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 - the company required custom enhancements in order to distribute SAP 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 SAP transports across their ECC6 system. The company also had a backlog of transports that the business wanted to push into Production. It needed to ensure that the SAP team had sufficiently thorough insight into the complex underlying dependencies, by automating analysis checks.

How we help

Perenco heard about the benefits of Basis Technologies' DevOps toolset through its VAR partner, PASàPAS, and implemented SAP change and release tool ActiveControl.

Perenco has better visibility and auditability of all SAP change delivered throughout their ECC6 landscape by the various development clients and in-house teams. The Back-Out capability provides an additional safety net in the event of a production outage, reducing the risk of change and improving the quality of SAP change.
