London headquartered oil and gas exploration and production company Neptune Energy has signed on homegrown IT (information technology) major Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) to drive its digital transformation journey. 

Under the engagement, a statement said, TCS is helping Neptune become an insights-driven, cloud-first organisation.  

The company – using its Machine First Delivery Model and expertise in advanced technologies – has standardized and automated Neptune’s IT infrastructure, resulting in more user-centric and agile operations, reduced mean time to resolve, and enhanced operational resilience. 

TCS has also implemented a cloud-native data and analytics platform for Neptune’s oil and gas operations. The robust, scalable, and secure system delivers data on demand and allows evidence-based decision-making across functions such as health and safety. 

This helps the company measure key performance indicators related to the health and safety of workers and address any possible risks. Neptune employs over 1,400 people in eight countries and was founded in 2015.

Beyond this, TCS said it is also helping Neptune accelerate the adoption of cloud technologies to further enhance agility and scalability of the business while reducing its environmental impact. The company has already used cloud-native integration services to enable seamless and reliable connectivity across apps and services in eight countries.  

“We are delighted to partner with Neptune Energy in building a future-proof cloud-based digital core that will serve as a foundation for accelerated innovation and differentiation in their journey towards a sustainable future,” Seema Mehra, TCS business head for Energy & Resources in the UK, Europe and ANZ, said while commenting on the engagement. 

“Progressive companies in the energy sector are embarking on multi-horizon cloud transformation journeys to enhance operational resilience, become more insights-driven and increase business agility,” she added. 

Among other projects, TCS recently expanded its contracts with Virgin Atlantic and insurance firm Royal London for digital transformation. 

In the financial year ending March 31, 2021, the company posted a revenue of $22.2 billion, up 0.7% YoY. It employs over 5 lakh consultants in 46 countries and handles customers in BFSI, retail, CPG, life sciences and healthcare, manufacturing, technology and services, and communication and media.
