Microsoft signs deal with Chevron to become its primary source of cloud services. As we enter the era of Digital transformation where technology empowers organizations to achieve more for less, organizations are starting to realize that their IT operations, that is, managing and creating technology to support the business is inadequate and costly. This creates inhibitors for speed, agility and growth, that in turn affect their competitive advantage. So why not get rid of those operations and buy technology as a service. This creates opportunities for companies like Microsoft to help companies like Chevron. Chevron will continue to use technology but at a faster rate of adoption. It will reduce its costs by using what it needs when it needs it. One of Chevrons focus on the coming years is to analyse massive amounts of data from all its sensors worldwide. Using the Microsoft cloud will speed up deployments as well as ensure projects are delivered on time and it will truly transform the way the data is analysed and used. Data will become the new currency. In this new deal Microsoft will handle technology infrastructure, security, collaboration, etc.so that Chevron can focus on its primary operations of oil production.
