1 Accenture Advanced Enterprise Performance Management Solution for SAP Helping oil and gas companies exploit today s insight and fuel tomorrow s high performance

2 In the recent Accenture High Performance Finance Study 1, those companies that described their EPM capabilities as advanced encompassing enterprise-wide valuedriving initiatives and standardization were much more satisfied than others (38 percent vs. 6 percent respectively) with the contribution of finance to overall performance and a number of key drivers of high performance. Today s global energy market forces are dictating that companies in the oil and gas industry cut through operational complexity to act and grow with greater speed, efficiency and accuracy. The down economy coupled with increasing demand for oil and gas equate to significant price volatility that is hard to monitor. More oil exploration and production projects could be delayed as companies respond to a lack of available capital, higher financing costs (such as rig rates, construction and material costs) and fears of a lower return on investment from lower oil prices. Bringing additional pressures is more stringent environmental and emissions legislation, from lowering sulfur fuels and phasing out methyl tertiary butyl ether to boosting requirements for renewable fuel use. Then, geophysical occurrences such as earthquakes and faulting, permafrost and frozen ground phenomena, flooding, ice, current and sediment hazards potentially threaten business success on a daily basis. Navigating the challenges in ways that drive high performance means having the ability to extract and interpret key sales, investment, compliance, drilling and development or other operational insight to shape your business strategy, closely monitor and adjust the levers of value and better adapt to market conditions and opportunities. At Accenture, obtaining this ability is called enterprise performance management (EPM). 1 The Changing Role of the Finance Organization in a Multi-Polar World: Accenture High Performance Finance Study 2008, Accenture 2008, available at: and_insights/by_subject/finance_mgmt/finance_ Operations/TheChangRole2008.htm

3 Insight to turn finance into a key contributor of high performance Oil and gas companies can best meet market pressures by adopting an "advanced" EPM approach wider in scope than is common. Advanced EPM includes governance, risk and compliance for a holistic view on enterprise performance, business intelligence for thorough analytics and enterprise information management for data integration. By adopting such an approach, enterprises can be more proactive in turning their finance organizations into a value creator ensuring that the business possesses the understanding, strategies, capabilities and information to compete globally while controlling and containing costs. Figure 1. Sample impact of advanced EPM in oil and gas. Operational More lean manufacturing targets Better profit margin management Increased speed to market The benefit potential is significant in driving competitive advantage, increased profitability, and market dominance (see Figure 1) through: 2 Better execution of strategies, allowing optimal resource allocation and maximizing sustained shareholder value. Translation of strategic goals into tactical execution. Enhanced monitoring of strategy execution across the organizational dimensions. More insightful, faster decision making. Optimized business performance across a single enterprise or business network. Greater connection between the finance and IT departments, including shared business goals and strategies. Yet, many oil and gas companies have Financial Lower operating costs Better management of R&D spending Increased product profitability Reduced capital expenditure cost struggled to achieve such benefits through comprehensive enterprise insight. Large amounts of data and poor data quality coupled with limited integration across multiple data sources often cause indecision, decision delays or missed opportunities to link performance measures to shareholder value. Energy companies that run on SAP have a significant opportunity to turn this situation around. EPM process and technology innovation now bring together strategic, business intelligence, operational and financial planning, consolidation, and control processes throughout the mainstream enterprise and synchronizes them with the right metrics, reporting and analytics. SAP-based information and systems can now be integrated to such a degree that it is finally possible to obtain an accurate, comprehensive and consolidated view of an organization s health and potential. We created the Accenture Advanced Enterprise Performance Management Solution for SAP specifically for organizations that manage their finance operations on SAP, with a view to fully incorporating value-added EPM insight throughout operations to better manage the business and outpace the market. Insightdriven value Performance Right tools and information to make decisions in a timely manner Knowledge of where to focus scarce resources Reliable plan more focused on strategy Avoiding complex budget planning 2 Enterprise Performance Management: Transforming finance in the journey to value-based management, Accenture 2006, available at: accenture.com/global/consulting/finance_mgmt/ Enterprise_Performance_Mgmt/R_and_I/ EnterpriseValueBasedManagement.htm

It is works in conjunction with the Accenture Advanced Enterprise Solution for Energy, helping oil and gas companies maximize the strategic potential of enterprise systems and accelerate enterprise-wide business value for lasting competitive advantage. The Advanced Enterprise Performance Management Solution enables finance departments to more easily access and deliver the accurate and actionable information their organizations need to formulate strategic plans, make the right decisions about markets, products and promotions, and report to stakeholders in a timely manner. By combining our unique insight and experience in enterprise performance, finance and functional processes with market-leading system integration skills, Accenture has formulated a holistic, results-driven approach to tap the full benefit of EPM. Key solution features: Accenture Enterprise Performance Management Framework, a holistic, phased and results-driven approach to fully integrating EPM functional processes and tools (see Figure 2). The patent-pending framework illustrates the components that must incorporate key performance metrics into core management processes as well as supporting tools, leadership behavior and culture. Firmly grounded in driving total return to shareholders, the framework consistently defines and models the key drivers of both current and future value and helps translate performance-oriented strategies into tangible actions. Comprehensive core set of tools with flexibility to customize to company specific requirements and processes. These include: value and portfolio analysis tools; planning, budgeting and forecasting methods; and reporting and analytic methods.

5 The Accenture Enterprise Performance Management Framework is enabled by SAP s EPM applications to increase enterprise insight, accuracy, flexibility and speed. Performance-enabling technology from SAP, taking full advantage of the recent and ongoing integration of the SAP BusinessObjects portfolio that supports core EPM functions. Each component of the framework is enabled by SAP software, a key in integrating vital data dimensions, which helps clients to tap into more business insight for compliance, financial planning and growth. From our extensive work with enterprise systems and SAP, Accenture understands how SAP s applications that enable EPM have evolved and continue to evolve to be a viable tool that encompasses enterprise-wide initiatives and standardization to help drive broad business value both financial and non-financial, tangible and intangible. Our EPM approach aligns with the Accenture Advanced Enterprise Solution, a preconfigured SAP solution that uses best practices, building blocks and implementation accelerators supported by SAP to provide flexible, predictable, high-quality implementations. Across a number of initiatives, our Accenture Advanced Enterprise Solution has reduced implementation time by as much as 50 percent for a variety of companies. Accenture developed this solution for the chemicals, metals and mining industries, and is currently adapting it to the energy industry. Accenture serves as a trusted and capable guide to help organizations plan for and execute the kind of change required to incorporate the benefits of advanced EPM processes into their business and maximize the returns on their SAP investment. Our clients rely on our marked ability to link our deep understanding of business processes with our systems integration experience to enable those processes with packaged solutions.
