Our client, an upstream Oil and Gas company headquartered in the South-Central United States, needed a holistic view of their data. Enormous quantities of data from their Completions, Drilling, and Production arms was largely hosted on-premises in a very siloed structure, severely limiting their ability to productively use it for analysis. In addition, the data was being pulled from disparate sources and platforms, making over-arching business decision-making impossible.
The Blueprint way
As with all Blueprint solutions, we began by meeting with all relevant stakeholders to ensure that goals, expectations, and strategies were all aligned with the key business problems we were trying to solve. Once consensus was reached, we began the process of migrating their data sources to an Azure Data Lake, which fed into a Cloud Data Warehouse. The nature of this solution provides the opportunity for data scientists to use advanced analytics and AI in addition to allowing more general users to explore their data in a self-service BI scenario via tools like Power BI.
