Equinor

Business Overview

Equinor is an integrated oil and gas company with headquarters in Norway and branch offices in 28 countries. Since 1998, Equinor has deployed Open iT for usage reporting on their multi-million dollar software investment, to manage software licenses used for exploration, reservoir management, drilling, production, business decision analysis and data management.

Business Challenge

Annually, Equinor pays for a wide range of software licenses used in exploration, production, project management and many other work applications. Access, training and support are crucial for achieving optimal efficiency in the usage of these applications. Equinor searched for a license administration tool to aid these processes in the company. An overview was needed, not only of purchased and installed software, but also showing how software was being used: many technical applications were used intensively at times and rarely at others. Accurate software usage analysis was needed to allow Equinor to negotiate flexible license agreements.
