Weekliii Round-Up: Cloud-Based Mobile Apps and Other Disruptive GIS Technology
Looking to get the latest news on geospatial technology and the oil and gas industry? Well, we've got a few things for you. While you're busy tidying up your To-Do list, read up on our latest posts and shares from throughout the week. Enjoy!
With the adoption of unconventional onshore oil and gas extraction techniques like hydraulic fracturing, the oil and gas industry has evolved to think outside of its formerly rigid box in favor of a planning process that offers room for trial and education. This flexibility has not been easy to implement for many reasons - access to technology that enables it is one big hurdle many energy companies face. Learn more about the strides BP has made in introducing flexibility through cloud-based mobile technology, changing the day-to-day activities of field technicians and allowing teams to embrace the analysis it provides.
We believe you should have your data inventory and secure it too. By implementing security setting in applications like Integrated Marco Palette and Integrated Marco Mystic, organizations can control who has access to scan the network for data and who just gets to browse the current inventory. Learn more about these features and more in the Integrated Marco Studio suite up on the blog.
There are many technologies that impact both our business and that of the Oil and Gas industry. Many of these extend even beyond the energy sector with some like drone technology affecting the GIS field directly. Check out eight of the biggest technologies and notable applications we should be paying attention to right now.
Although #BigData may eventually morph into a different term, the simple fact that we have not left the mounds and mounds of data we've accumulated in the past still remains. As technologies continue to evolve and workflows become more streamlined, the amount of information we have to work with will likely to continue to grow - or better yet, may simply increase in quality alone. Many influencers in the technology industry are predicting what may be on the horizon for this hefty buzzword. What do you think we should be looking forward to?
