Woodside have been on a journey to implement SAP S/4HANA, the complexity of the project was increased by the merger of Woodside and BHP Petroleum in 2022 during the implementation. The project was also impacted by the requirement for Sarbanes Oxley reporting compliance prior to go live.
The project had clear and present executive commitment and closely adhered to the stated strategy of Vanilla, At Pace and Greenfields.
The Vanilla component was essential to bring together two organisations both working on highly customised ECC versions. All deviations from Vanilla required CEO approval with a supporting business case.
The journey went into Hypercare on 8th January after a successful go live. This journey started with a proof of concept, followed by product assessment and selection, and is now approaching the end of Hypercare. Organisations considering the move to SAP S/4HANA, unsure if a Greenfield implementation is achievable, this is an opportunity to hear about the approach and key milestones Woodside have taken to set up for a successful transformation and what it means for Woodside’s ambition to bring global operations together.
