ExxonMobil is to upgrade its Enterprise Resource Allocation sofware SAP R/3 to the latest web-enabled version - MySAP.com. mySAP.com will now become the primary backbone for global business. Web-enablement means that potentially all of ExxonMobil’s 100,000 downstream employees can access the system - even while on the move.
The new software is intended to consolidate systems subsequent to the Exxon/Mobil merger. Individually, both Exxon and Mobil were longtime SAP customers and have already upgraded from SAP R/2 to SAP R/3.
Jerry Kohlenberger, president of the ExxonMobil Global Services Co. said “We have been SAP customers since the late 1980s, and we are excited to continue to build upon our investment in SAP solutions, to meet our business objectives of maintaining best-in-class business performance.”
ExxonMobil will leverage the SAP industry expertise to connect global operations and reduce costs. ExxonMobil expects to improve the performance of its chemicals business unit supply chain. mySAP.com Human Capital Management and the mySAP.com Workplace will strengthen global human resource management capabilities.
“In an environment of intense competition, companies need to develop innovative ways of increasing operational efficiency to maintain a competitive advantage,” said Wolfgang Kemna, CEO of SAP America, Inc.
“ExxonMobil is meeting the challenge to stay competitive by integrating mySAP.com solutions to streamline its global business processes. In selecting mySAP.com, ExxonMobil builds a flexible foundation that will allow it to quickly respond and remain competitive.”
