Unleash Your Data's Potential℠

60% no more! Solving your data management challenges by “1,000 cuts”

Katalyst Data Management

There are more options than ever before for databases, applications, storage and compute to solve the data challenges faced by the energy industry, yet after 30 years, we are still being told that “60% of our time” is spent finding and organizing data for geoscientists. Why is this? How can we move past the initial step of data gathering to real digital transformation that takes full advantage of the growing field of data science?

Shawn New, Principal Consultant for Katalyst in the US, will provide a quick look at the history of energy data management, discuss organizational challenges to data strategy and the current reality of data as an asset, and share ideas on how to deliver measurable results for your data management projects.
