14 April 2016

For its eight edition, the SYNTEC prize for Management Research which aims to reward the best research publications has been awarded to Shirish C. Srivastava, HEC Paris associate professor of Operations Management and Information Systems and SnO member.

Each year, organized by Syntec Management and chaired by André Benoit Jaegere, Vice-President of Capgemini Consulting, this event gathers consultants and researchers showcasing the best of research in French business schools and universities and the rich collaboration between practitioners and researchers.

In the Operations Management, Control/Information Systems & Technology category, Shirish C. Srivastava was awarded for his article "How Schlumberger Achieved Networked Information Leadership by Transitioning to a Product-Platform Software Architecture " published in the MIS Quarterly.

Abstract: To sustain its competitive position as the leader in providing information solutions to the oil and gas industry, Schlumberger transitioned to a cutting-edge product-platform software architecture by embedding a leading geological modeling software product—Petrel—within Ocean, its collaborative open software platform. The practices it used to overcome the challenges of the transition give rise to three principles that can be leveraged by other companies.
