Technical engineering applications have long been an important tool for engineers in the well design process. The nature of being on-prem in individual devices has posed several issues, where lengthy installation processes often lead to a large amount of time consumption and disrupts the engineers’ work efficiency. As the industry moves into the era of digitalization, the Wells on Cloud solution is introduced. The migration of current on-prem applications into a SaaS Cloud-based solution aims to mitigate the issues encountered by users via the elimination of installation processes and automatic push updates. The WoC solution aligns with Wells Digital Roadmap to act as a central hub and a single source of truth while focusing on three key principles. It aspires to cater to solutions from different vendors, capitalize on established Cloud-based infrastructure to host the solution platform and facilitate data transparency. Being a Cloud-based solution, all updates can be implemented and pushed to the user's devices, and users can access their data with a device anytime and anywhere. Direct links to the Open-End Community are incorporated into the solution. Moving on, the WoC's security system consists of active detection of anomalies, protecting against these issues, and comprehensive strategies to respond to any potential breakdown. To measure the value creation resulting from this initiative, the quantitative process cycle efficiency and qualitative feedback survey are conducted. PCE improvements demonstrated the timeline improvement brought by this solution, along with the positive comments shared by heavy users of these applications. The successful deployment of the Wells on Cloud solution has equipped engineers with the tools to unlock the full capability of technical engineering applications right at their fingertips. It also opened the avenues for business agility and scalability to match business requirements, reducing the Total Cost of Ownership and leading to savings. This solution sets the path for Cloud-based working and drives the industry to move towards digitally enabled businesses.
