Aker Solutions accelerates its digitalization efforts by moving its internal SAP applications to SAP's cloud, aiming to improve operations and drive efficiency. Cloud-based systems are typically cheaper to run than physical systems as they require less expenditure on computer hardware, monitoring and software licenses. The move will save Aker Solutions about 20 percent on software licensing costs alone.

Mr Dean Watson, Aker Solutions Chief Operating Officer, said that "We're an early mover on this as we see it as yet another opportunity to use digitalization to transform our own internal processes. It's also part of our broader strategy to harness the power of data to create greater value for our customers."

Mr Martin Schirmer, SAP's Nordics and Baltics Managing Director, said that "This will enable Aker Solutions to harvest the financial and operational benefits of running business critical systems in the cloud."

Aker Solutions has used SAP's suite of business applications for accounting, sales, inventory and payroll since 2004. Cognizant has provided the IT services.

Aker Solutions, Cognizant and SAP Digital Business Services have already started transferring the data from physical servers to the cloud-based platform. The transfer is expected to be complete in the fourth quarter.
