GE Oil & Gas Case Study
GE Oil & Gas is migrating 500 applications to the cloud by the end of 2016 as part of a major digital transformation, helping it attain a 52 percent reduction in TCO. GE Oil & Gas is a business unit of global conglomerate General Electric, with energy-related operations around the world. The company's cloud migration project entailed reexamining—and in many cases, eliminating—legacy processes, resulting not only in lower IT costs but also in greater speed to market and more agility to compete even better in an industry experiencing immense market challenges. GE Oil & Gas is using the AWS Import/Export Snowball appliance to transfer more than 750 terabytes of data from pipeline inspection machinery to AWS, as well as AWS services such as Amazon Aurora, Amazon CloudWatch, AWS Elastic Beanstalk, and AWS Trusted Advisor.
