A leading independent oil and gas producer uses MDO for data migration and governance

One of the leading independent oil and gas producers in the Asia-Pacific region, supplying the energy needs of homes, businesses and major industries across Australia and Asia.

Business Challenges:

  • The client decided to move away from Oracle and implement SAP S/4HANA as a part of their transformation project.
  • This created a big challenge for them to convert their asset data into SAP data models. This made it further complex as they also had acquisitions that had both SAP and Oracle.
  • The on-going challenge to maintain their Master data post-go-live was also identified as a critical need.
  • They required a solution that could help both migrate and manage their on-going data governance

Solution Area:

MDO DIW and MDM

  • DIW has been used to map all the Oracle Data, run data quality checks and prepare the data for Deloitte (S/4HANA Implementation Partner) to upload in the new environment.
  • The same master data rules for migration, with enhancements have been also implemented for governance.
  • The key areas have been Maintenance Master Data, followed by Materials and Vendors.
  • The old data will also remain in MDO, for future reference and any cross-search references post live.

Business Benefits:

  • One solution to help in Migration and Governance.
  • An established framework that will allow client to manage data for any new acquisitions.
  • Data Quality Rules will be consistent during transition.
  • Materials (Spares) can be linked with assets, which will help assets and supply to work together.
  • Pre-existing business rules as templates for expediting the process.
  • Audit-trail of data for all changes during the data transformation & migration.
  • Data Migration logs for monitoring.
