Digital Transformation is not just a technological option, but a necessity and therefore an integral part of Group’s strategic priorities. It aims and contributes to:
Performance improvement: Increasing revenues and margin while reducing costs (e.g. through improved productivity, flexibility, quality, speed of decisions & operations, faster reaction to market and personalized customer experience).
Keep up with competition: Most Mediterranean and Global Oil & Gas players started their digital journey and have already realized significant benefits.
Invent new ways of working: empowering existing human capital through acquisition of new skills, talents and practices. Empowerment also comes via the adoption of new collaboration methods, enhanced operations, advanced risk management techniques and crisis response capabilities (like COVID-19).
HELPE Group has prepared a vision and a scope for its Digital Transformation, spanning across the organization. The transformation program has already started its 3 years journey with very attractive investment metrics.
Since benefit realization is a cornerstone in project success, there is a sound methodology and a governance model ensuring value realization.
