Engineering the
Transformation
When I became CIO three years ago, I began
looking for ways to add value right away.
One of the first things my team and I did was
to establish a new IT strategy, one that focused
less on technology, on bits and bytes, and more
on describing the business outcomes and value
creation that we hoped to achieve. This created
interest and engagement in the business.
I also started discussing our IT architecture with
my team. My question was, were the portfolio
of systems that had served us well in the past
going to work in the digital era? Would they
scale? Would they be able to meet the demand
to deliver technology faster?
The answer to all those questions was a very
clear no. So then we asked ourselves, what
should we do to change that?
Our answer was to start building a cloud-based
IT platform to liberate the data locked away in
our 3000+ IT systems. The project took some
time, but we did it.
The third thing we did was to conduct a few pilot
projects that signaled to the entire organization
we were moving in a new direction - simple
things like a branded travel expense app, and
solutions to other relatively small problems.

We also began to experiment a little with some
new technologies. For example, we began
testing HoloLens "mixed reality" smart-glasses
during construction, commissioning and hookup at one of our mega projects in Korea. The
glasses enabled the sharing of 3-D models
across geographies, which increased efficiency
and reduced costs. They made possible
visualization of planned modifications, which
reduced errors and the need for changes. They
allowed us to overlay 3D models on top of the
physical reality, to ensure that everything had
been properly installed. The glasses' navigation
functionality cut the time a worker needed to
track down a pipe system in the plant from
an hour to four minutes. And their Skype
functionality enabled virtual consultations with
experts, leading to fewer flights to the rig and
thus improved safety. Today, this technology
is getting spread far and wide as part of our
Digital Field Worker program.
But the thing I am probably most proud of is
architecting our partnership with Microsoft,
which has led to the establishment of two data
center regions in Norway. This has ripple effects
way beyond Equinor and paves the way for
growth and transformation of the many other
small and large businesses and organizations
that constitute the lifeblood of Norway's
thriving economy.
