In this experience report, I will share the journey of Statoil toward the adoption of modern IT technologies and architecture patterns like cloud computing, machine learning, and microservices. We are seeing the the start of a new IT platform—one based on cloud technologies that will allow more operating freedom from vendors, who traditionally have dominated IT landscapes. In this experience report, I will share the path we have taken and the obstacles we have navigated as well as the architecture and technology choices we have made. As far as I can, I will leave out specific branding and focus on the functionality of the chosen solutions. Join me to hear our experiences from this transformational journey.
