In light of the need for the systematic development of information and communications technology, the elimination of inconsistency and redundancy, and information security, SOCAR established its Information Technologies and Communications Department by Order No. 158 of September 22, 2006.
The Information Technologies and Communications Department is building a modern network system interconnecting all of SOCAR's enterprises and organisations that will integrate telecommunications, security, and computer information network technologies, provide centralized Internet access to corporate computer network clients, ensure information security and the efficiency of information exchange, and support the centralized administration and routine operation of the computer system.
Considering that SOCAR was making the transition to International Accounting Standards effective January 1, 2008 and the need to enhance the integration of systems and processes for all the company's businesses, the company issued an order for the administration, regulation, and development of the Department's Business Resources Planning system.
In 2010, SOCAR concluded a software support, services, and consulting agreement with Fugro Data Solutions of the United Kingdom for creating the Corporate Oilfield and Geoscience Database. According to an order from the President of SOCAR, ITCD is responsible for the project implementation. For SOCAR, the advantage of this project is its scientific importance. SOCAR has established the Corporate Database Division at the Department to implement the project.
A Centralized Publishing Facility with modern digital equipment that meets international standards is operating within the structure of Department. The facility takes and fills orders placed by all divisions of the company.
An electronic information system has been put in place at the Central Oil Workers Hospital with the Department's direct involvement. Currently, the system is undergoing expansion and receiving technical support.
