Why Enterprise CPQ Implementations Fail

July 23, 2018

You’ve reached a certain point in the evolution of your company and you know it’s time to invest in a CPQ system. But buyer beware: There’s a certain misconception around CPQ systems as being plug-in devices or turnkey-ready overlays of your existing infrastructure, or a simple app you sign up for and that’s it. Yes—the best ones do not require heavy IT resources to get them up and running. But even the best ones require certain things to happen to make their implementation and rollout successful, and most companies, despite the best-laid plans, usually get torpedoed by one of the following issues.

Good for your business, good for the planet Sustainability strategies to build a more resilient world

whitePaper | April 23, 2022

Our growing climate crisis demands that we conserve energy and water, reduce waste, and find ways to protect our ecosystems. But the most urgent challenge facing us globally may be to reduce our carbon emissions. And while governments and businesses across the globe are racing to set ambitious targets on a path to a net zero carbon future, we can’t reach net zero if we don’t actually know where we are. We need a common foundation to ensure that Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions are measured in an accurate, consistent, and reliable way. Without global standards, it will be difficult for organizations to develop effective roadmaps to reduce their emissions without wasting time and money—and it will be difficult to know if our collective actions are making a difference

Toward a new energy system: A holistic view of how we can shape the energy transition together

whitePaper | April 4, 2022

Energy is the beginning of everything, the basis of civilizational development and the foundation of all economic progress. To make it future proof, we need a balance of affordability, reliability, and sustainability. This includes a phase-out of coal, the expansion of renewables, the further development of H₂-capable gas power plants and grid stability services, as well as storage solutions that step in when the wind isn’t blowing and the sun isn’t shining. Together, these steps and technologies can ensureenergy security and make a decarbonized energy system possible.

Onsite Major Component Replacement Technologies for Floating Offshore Wind: the Status of the Industry

whitePaper | February 12, 2023

Amidst the rapid developments the floating offshore wind industry is experiencing, this white paper intends to build a preliminary classification of floating wind heavy maintenance concept types under development. Through a high-level comparative assessment of assigned crane families and an overarching discussion on strategy considerations, this white paper hopes to inform the decision processes of key stakeholders in the field. The findings from this work feed into the wider discussions of WFO’s Floating Offshore Wind Committee (FOWC), where the insurability and bankability perspective reflects on the challenges of floating wind and the new technologies that aim to solve them. These cross-discipline conversations remind us of the need to balance cost reductions and safety measures to preserve the risk perception of floating wind technologies, especially for the first commercial-scale projects.

THE ROLE OF OIL AND GAS COMPANIES IN THE ENERGY TRANSITION

whitePaper | January 21, 2020

As the third decade of 21st century begins, the oil and gas industry faces opposition from a public greatly concerned with the environmental impact of fossil fuels, ever-more skeptical shareholders, and challenges from policy makers seeking to simultaneously meet decarbonization goals and expected oil and gas demand. Amidst a global energy transition, the demand, financial, and social future of oil and gas companies is increasingly in question.
