Statoil, a leading oil and gas producer, plans to merge with part of Norsk Hydro to create the world’s biggest offshore oil company. Statoil had depended on Lotus Notes for 10 years, but needed a new enterprise document and records management system to improve collaboration, archiving, and regulatory compliance. Having considered solutions from Documentum and IBM, Statoil worked with Meridio and Microsoft to roll out its new programme— Collaboration@Statoil – to more than 26,000 Statoil information workers. Statoil has consolidated all its records into a single repository, ensuring that previously hard-to-trace information stored in several locations could be located easily. Information workers are now much more productive and can share documents and data with external partners, regulators, vendors, suppliers, and other enterprises.
The Israeli Ministry of Defence
The Israeli Ministry of Defence (MoD) wanted to upgrade its e-mail messaging system for knowledge workers because the existing platform had become too expensive and provided insufficient support for Hebrew. After evaluating several options, the MoD replaced Lotus Notes with Microsoft® Exchange Server 2003 communication and collaboration server. The MoD also upgraded its desktop estate with Microsoft Office Outlook® 2003 and Microsoft Office 2003. By using Microsoft Systems Management Server version 2.0, the software distribution process took just three days—without any glitches or inconvenience to users. The MoD considers it has advanced its e-mail messaging system a whole generation, improved integration with other critical systems, saved on employee training, and improved the productivity and satisfaction of users.
