Case Study: Global Oil Leader Transforms IT with Alauda Container Platform

A global oil and gas giant, ranking among the top three in the industry, recognized the need to modernize its IT infrastructure to stay competitive in the rapidly evolving energy sector. With a diverse portfolio of subsidiaries and a strong focus on innovation, the company sought to leverage cloud-native technologies, streamline application development and deployment, enable edge computing capabilities for its IoT ecosystem, and explore the potential of Large Language Models (LLMs) for advanced analytics and automation.



Legacy Applications
The company's reliance on monolithic architectures and legacy applications hindered agility, scalability, and innovation.
Fragmented IT Landscape
The company's acquired subsidiaries operated on different IT platforms, leading to siloed development efforts and challenges in collaboration and resource sharing.
Developer Productivity
he lack of self-service infrastructure and manual provisioning processes impacted developer productivity and slowed down application delivery.
Edge Computing Complexity
Managing and deploying applications at the edge posed challenges due to the lack of a unified platform and centralized control plane.
LLMOps Adoption
The company wanted to harness the power of LLMs for advanced analytics and automation but lacked the necessary tools and infrastructure to effectively train, deploy, and manage LLM-based applications.
