What is the need for an O&G platform?
It is well recognized that the move to cloud computing is going to unlock significant value for the oil and gas sector. The pre-requisite to migrating to and operating the lowest TCO is a modern, cloud platform. A modern oil and gas cloud platform is characterized by support for Oil and Gas applications, micro-services and containers, polyglot languages and optimized for running on a variety of infrastructure and service offerings. This platform will replace the multiple proprietary, legacy, domain specific platforms that serve as the workhorses of the industry, requires the harnessing of modern, open source technologies and personalizing them for our industry's needs. The OEC is both a contemporary platform from which to start this process and a set of operating principles designed to achieve this outcome.
