  9. 9. Issue: Upstream Oil & Gas is different from many industries in that key processes such as Revenue and JIB are run in monthly batch cycles. As a result it is very difficult to fix issues with data on a transaction by transaction level in the normal business cycle. Accurate master data is critical! Resolution: Testing is only valid on business processes in which the business test is being completed on converted data from the source systems.

  12. 12. Data Conversion • Initial baseline data load started within 60 days • Identified additional business scenarios not identified in the blueprint that needed to be addressed • Met Go Live requirement of January 2015 • Converted 98% of all data – Remaining 2% was the combination of unnecessary records and incomplete records that need further research Business • By the first close on SAP, SM Energy was able to decrease closing timeline from 13 days to 7 days with a higher level of accuracy. Outcomes Best Practices for Oil & Gas 2015 | 16
  13. 13. • Start data conversion and cleansing as early as possible in the project • Controls must be included in each data conversion test. • It will take several (3-5) iterations of data conversion for functional tests to ensure a high level of data accuracy at Go-Live. • All functional testing must be done on converted data from the source systems.
