Chronicles of import substitution in Transneft: migration with SAP on Galaktika, testing of the Russian OS and DBMS
In 2018 in Transneft rough activity in the field of import substitution of the software was conducted. It follows from the annual report of the company published in July, 2019. The key project is relocation of the enterprises of Transneft with SAP on solutions based on domestic software Galaktika. The decision on use of a standard product based on Galaktika instead of SAP for management systems for production assets and resources and also financial and economic activity was approved in Transneft in April, 2017.
In 2017-2018 in Transneft the corporate information system (CIS) "Galaktika of the Russian Labour Party 2.0" was developed, and 2018-2019 upgraded it to the new version - CIS "Galaktika of the Russian Labour Party 3.0", the annual report says. One of subsystems of CIS "Galaktika of the Russian Labour Party 3.0" - a management subsystem works and services based on the Galaktika EAM platform. On Galaktika software base the corporate information system of certification and control of technical condition was developed.
Replication of CIS "Galaktika of the Russian Labour Party 3.0" and the systems of certification and control of technical condition in the organizations of a system Transneft is planned for 2019-2025.
Judging by purchases of Transneft in 2017-2018, ERP based on Galaktika uses already more than pair of tens of its organizations. Among them – "Transneft Finance", "Transneft – the Urals", "Transneft – the North", "Transneft - Siberia", "Transneft - Upper Volga", "Transneft – Prikamye", "Transneft – Baltika", "Transneft – the East" and others.
It is necessary to tell that in a number of the organizations standard solutions based on 1C for automation of financial and economic activity are also used. In particular, in service organizations of a system Transneft.
Transneft also replaced SAP regarding the systems of distance learning and testing: instead of the products of the German vendor used earlier in 2018 the WebTutor system of the Russian developer WebSoft Development was implemented, the annual report says.
Within import substitution for newly created corporate information and analytical systems Transneft selected the Russian BI- the platform Prognoz Platform which is developed by the company Foresight. On it in Transneft in 2018 the following corporate systems were developed:
- Management of programs;
- Planning and reporting under productive activity of group "Transneft;
- Management of programs and plans of the PCS.
And there is more to come. Transneft also studies a possibility of replacement of import OS, office programs and DBMS on domestic. So, in September, 2018 the schedule of testing of domestic OS "Viola Server" and "Viola Workstation" with participation of the developer BaseALT and also domestic DBMS Postgres Pro with participation of the developer was created and approved Postgres Professional.
Within a year, till December of the 2018th, Transneft held complex testing of the office software of "MyOffice" with the assistance of New cloud technologies developer, it is specified in the report. Speaking about continuation of this cooperation, the associate director of New cloud technologies Armen Kocharov noted that transition of large department or company to the new office software precedes testing which problems not only assessment of functionality of office products, but also abilities to integrate with already existing IT ecosystem enters. Office editors are one of components when forming of the uniform protected ecosystem of the company. It will be possible to speak about continuation of cooperation on the next stage, Kocharov noted.

Import substitution affects also geographic information systems (GIS). From more than 50 products, contained in the register of domestic software, the company selected a little for assessment of possible import substitution of separate components of the GIS platforms and solutions. In particular, GIS "Axiom", "Cyclone", NextGIS, Scanex GeoMixer, etc. In 2019 testing of the selected and free software of GIS and also formation of requirements to its completion for needs of Transneft is planned.
For the systems of integration and the guaranteed delivery of data, instead of the used solutions based on products of IBM, Transneft selected three domestic integration buses for assessment of possible import substitution from the register of domestic software. In 2019 testing of these products and also the free software of Apache Kafka and Mule ESB for development on their basis of domestic industry software for application integration and delivery of data is planned.
