IBM said that BP selected IBM Global Business Services (GBS), to provide Application Development Services for global SAP project delivery.
BP is tapping IBM’s integrated consulting models to develop and deploy an Enterprise Systems portfolio — including BP’s Upstream, Downstream and Global Functions.
IBM will help BP create a platform that offers a differentiated proposition by investing in a strong pipeline of projects and opportunities that capitalize on BP’s strengths.
IBM’s solutions and over 30 years of expertise in SAP consulting will help BP gain the most value from its SAP investments by simplifying, standardizing and consolidating its IT software applications globally.
“Through this contract, IBM will help BP to accelerate the implementation of SAP across the organization, and lower our overall cost base“, said Mike Gibbs, BP Group CIO.
David Marley, managing director at IBM, said: “Looking to the future, we will continue to bring together IBM’s integrated services management, research capabilities and innovative technologies to provide BP the right mix of skills and capabilities they need to support their business and drive future growth.”
