This IDC Buyer Case Study reviews and analyzes Sasol's ongoing information management strategy, the business benefits of its decisions (particularly in addressing legacy issues and enabling future growth), and its evolving relationship with HCL, a key outsourcing supplier.
HCL was appointed as Sasol's outsourcing partner at an early stage, as it had the necessary technical skills and a strong background in strategically aligning IT and business units. Gradually, the relationship moved from transitioning to managing and maintaining Sasol's IT infrastructure. This not only provided the right ROI, but also maximized confidence across Sasol's IT ecosystem in terms of its availability and ability to execute projects, as well as its flexibility in managing additional requests.
Sasol is on track to successfully transform its complex IT operation into an efficient and unified group, strategically aligned with the company's plans for global coordination and growth.
