Going deeper: Pacific Drilling positions itself for even greater business growth by implementing SAP® Business Suite powered by SAP HANA™
Since its founding in 2008, Houston-based Pacific Drilling has become a premier ultra-deepwater drilling contractor in the oil and natural gas industry. It has grown from zero to about 1,200 employees, and owns a fleet of technologically advanced drillships that operate in some of the most remote locations in the world. However, until recently the company wasn’t able to track performance at the desired level, and its SAP® ERP system was overdue for an upgrade. Deploying SAP HANA®’s in-memory computing capabilities is helping Pacific Drilling achieve its aggressive goals for performance tracking and management. And combining the move with an overall SAP® ERP upgrade enabled the company to save both time and money.
