The Challenge

bp is navigating a large-scale digital transformation journey to modernize its IT organization, step up innovation, adopt agile methodologies, and create a world-class engineering team. Having adopted a ‘Cloud First” strategy, it needed expert guidance to intelligently transition to the cloud.

The Solution

Cloudreach helped design and deploy several cloud landing zone platforms on AWS to make it easier for bp users to manage financial processes and connectivity. Using agile methodologies, platforms were delivered with a focus on continuous improvement and development. 

We built a fully-managed IaaS platform to move apps to a new OS version in AWS, built another landing zone to which several complex apps were migrated via lift-and-shift, and deployed a highly complex Hub and Spoke AWS landing zone architecture – a shared services model that allows bp to build for scale while segmenting infrastructure to ensure security, compliance, and network isolation.

Cloudreach continues to help bp deliver new capabilities and services to advance its cloud adoption and transformation.

The Partnership

By engaging with teams and stakeholders across the business, Cloudreach has become a key partner for bp, consistently achieving outcomes that enable bp’s internal customers to use the AWS platform in a safe, secure and effective manner and power its cloud transformation. Our agile working culture and deep technical expertise have fostered a successful partnership and helped upskill bp’s internal resources at the same time.

The Outcome

Cloudreach assisted bp in accelerating its digital transformation and realizing its ‘Cloud-First’ ambitions with a modern IT infrastructure. 

New cloud environments can be provisioned within hours and valuable insights garnered from data and AI services, rapidly delivering value to the business.

bp is now empowered to build innovative cloud-native applications, perform mass migration of apps at speed, and fully leverage AWS capabilities.

Cloudreach brought highly specialized skills that we didn’t have internally at bp, and helped us establish our cloud regions, our technical patterns, automated everything from the outset, and ensured billing transparency for our businesses – something we were never able to do in an on-premise environment.
