Halliburton working with Accenture, Microsoft to move to Azure


Energy services company Halliburton, Microsoft, and Accenture have entered into a five-year agreement to migrate Halliburton’s digital capabilities to Azure.

Under the agreement, Halliburton will be enhancing real-time platforms for expanded remote operations, improving analytics capability with the Halliburton Data Lake utilizing machine learning and artificial intelligence, and accelerating the deployment of new technology and applications, including SOC2 compliance.

The agreement enables the migration of all Halliburton physical data centers to Azure. Accenture will work with Microsoft, in conjunction with their Avanade joint venture, to help with the transition.

The companies expect to complete the staged migration by 2022.
