Introduction

On August 27th, we sat down with Michiel Espach, VP of Information Technology and CIO of Tesoro Corporation. In the beautiful new corporate headquarters, nestled in San Antonio’s hill country, we discussed Tesoro’s SAP mobilization effort using 3i’s Mobile Workplace. What followed was a fascinating insight into some of the challenges Tesoro were facing, how they were addressed by Mobilizing SAP, and what, if any, benefits were realized from the mobilization effort.
