There will never be less data in our industry than what we have today. Data that is simply copied and collected becomes out of date almost immediately and rapidly loses its value, so connecting and integrating this ever-growing quantity of data has never been more important. The answer is simple – Cloud. However, the logistics of migrating our most precious asset is perhaps a more intimidating prospect, prompting questions and causing doubt to bubble to the surface.
How do you successfully shift all of that data, and what about costs? Surely, it will be prohibitively expensive, won’t it? And if you manage to get your data into the cloud will it be secure and how do you connect it all together so you can make the most of it? Suddenly it does not sound so simple; it sounds time-consuming, expensive, and potentially fraught with peril.
But it doesn’t have to be.
Open architecture is a fundamental component that underpins all of Landmark’s technology. Built from the ground up, it enables a choice of deployment in a hybrid cloud environment and seamless connectivity to your existing investments, third party applications, and plug-ins.
Integration Foundation and Data Foundation make up the Information Management layer of DecisionSpace® 365. Powered by iEnergy®, an E&P hybrid Cloud, Integration Foundation and Data Foundation enable you to integrate workflows by connecting your cloud and on-premise assets so they work in harmony. This has a number of advantages:
Transition to the Cloud
With a hybrid cloud environment, there is no need to lift-and-shift all your assets simultaneously. Integration Foundation and Data Foundation allow you to connect with your data and applications regardless of their location. This enables you to transition to the cloud at a pace that suits your business and your budget.
Unlock Your Data’s Potential
Data Foundation leverages unlimited cloud storage capacity for cost-effective, scalable means to store a massive quantity of data on an open platform. This means your data is centralized and categorized so Landmark applications, analytics, and machine learning can easily consume it. It also means your data is readily available for performing advanced analytics and complex calculations. You can be confident that data output is accurate and reliable, helping to uncover new opportunities.
Set Yourself up for Success
Integration Foundation works with Data Foundation to connect and integrate data accessible from multiple live sources, including OSDU, through a single access point. Data Foundation supports the decision-making process by providing a more complete picture of your assets using quality metrics and audit trails. Built-in QC diagnostics and data tracking provide known lineages for data you can rely upon.
Transcend Industry Silos
Data Foundation together with Integration Foundation, manages cross-domain data sets (subsurface, engineering, log, seismic), and connects with third-party data sets through a single access point. Self-service dashboards and enterprise-wide search capabilities help ensure that you have the data you need at your fingertips. You can be confident that data output is accurate and reliable.
Create Value & Innovate Faster
Automated workflows prepare, load, run quality checks, approve, and add entitlements through the ingestion pipeline, allowing you to completely reimagine your day for the better. You can even inject your own configuration (rules, actions, metadata, attributes, etc.) into the pipeline.
There is no getting away from the fact that transitioning to the Cloud is an integral and necessary part of the digital transformation of our industry. The good news is that it does not have to be as complicated or as expensive as you might think.
With Integration Foundation and Data Foundation, you can transition to the cloud at a pace that suits you, by connecting your on-premise and cloud systems via one integrated platform for a seamless unified view of your data.
Once your assets are connected, there are significant efficiency gains and cost savings to be had by utilizing the storage capacity of the cloud and advanced cloud technology, which enable you to get your hands on quality data faster than ever before.
Enhanced cross-domain collaboration and reliable quality control means you can be more confident in your data, which in turn can help uncover new opportunities and support informed decision making about well placement and other data-critical decisions. Sounds good, doesn’t it? Request a demo today.
