BP’s mission is to meet the energy needs of the world while reducing its carbon emissions. BP is achieving this by becoming a technology company by implementing digital solutions, big data, and advanced tools. This modern technology reduces BP’s reliance on legacy systems while speeding up the pace of new tech deliverables. 

Empowered with an API strategy 

Before BP had an API strategy, it required complex planning, specific developer skills, and potentially months of time to build a single solution and bring it into the market. BP now uses MuleSoft to accelerate that delivery gap.

With MuleSoft’s Anypoint Platform, BP’s IT&S team is able to unlock vital systems, applications, and data via API-led connectivity. Because Anypoint Platform allows businesses to group and reuse APIs, the line-of-business teams at BP can self-serve and develop their own technology solution, without heavy IT&S team involvement. As a result, project delivery is sped up and innovation continues to be supercharged. 

BP’s chief architect of digital platforms, Paul Schuster says “Now, with the Mulesoft Anypoint Platform in place, we can integrate SaaS systems and on-premises applications rapidly.”

Its API strategy now lies at the center of its application ambitions and technology transformation,  allowing BP to add digital to every product it produces. Its delivery speed has accelerated while maintaining central governance, making it so its IT&S team can drive innovation even further. 

BP’s innovative products made with Anypoint Platform
