Carve-out of IT environment

ENI (Distrigas)

Challenge

Following the merger between Suez and Gaz de France, the newly formed GDF Suez group had to carve out fully Distrigas. Among other things, this entailed a search for new ICT solutions (applications but also hosting of the IT environment) that would make Distrigas less dependent on Electrabel.

ARCH became involved and has guided the carve out and the migration of the administrative applications (SAP ERP and SAP CRM) to a new environment, including the full “post-migration care”.

Project approach

  • Inventory and strategy – We examined every component of the ERP and CRM platforms and defined their place in the entire ICT ecosystem. Secondly, we outlined the migration strategy for each component. The business owners and ICT staff were fully involved in this phase.
  • Selection of IT Partner– ARCH listed the specifications for the new IT application and infrastructure solutions. We analysed the market, selected the suppliers and assisted Distrigas in the contract negotiations.
  • Planning – Each component of the migration was planned in fine detail. The sum of those individual plans resulted in one master plan that was validated by all internal and external stakeholders.
  • Management – ARCH managed the entire project as Project Manager. We handed over to the various support teams in such way that the new IT environment contributed to the further development of Distrigas/ENI.

Result

ARCH provided Distrigas with a handful of concrete deliverables: an inventory, specifications, selection dossiers and the master plan. Based on those documents, Distrigas succeeded in completing the migration in full.
 
Distrigas is market leader in Belgium for selling gas to companies. It is part of ENI for some time now, and is further building on a strong international position.
