IT consultants Sopra Steria are now assisting the energy company with the project, which according to Microsoft is among the largest migrations carried out in Norway in recent years.
It’s all the data centers and more than 1,000 servers in Norway and South America, which are now being moved to the cloud and migrated to the Microsoft Azure platform.
Vincent Christiansen, head of cloud infrastructure at Statkraft, expects immediate benefits from the project. He points out that the world needs clean energy, and with strong global growth ambitions in the coming years, it makes more sense to be in the cloud than on the ground.
The basis of the project is positive and indicates that the investment will cover its costs within a few years. We will become a more efficient, data-driven organization, and we will have access to new technology that will help us increase the pace of innovation. In addition, we will benefit from the fact that platforms are standardized and that solutions can easily scale up and down as needed, says Statkraft’s Christiansen.
