Why Everyone Needs The Cloud

There’s a reason why companies like Netflix, Apple, and even paper-happy Xerox have embraced cloud computing for their businesses: it works. It gives them the ability to grow faster, manage processes and people more efficiently, and increase accessibility to their customers. We’re moving out of the early adopters stage — all industries are embracing cloud computing and IoT, including oil and gas.

Cloud computing isn’t just the future, it’s now, and those that are behind on adapting cloud-based processes are falling behind in the race to be the best. If you’re still not sure if cloud computing is right for your business, take a look at a few of the benefits of embracing the cloud.

Multi-Device Access

Whether on the field or at home, on your phone or on your laptop, you’re able to access information from anywhere at anytime. This makes your team more efficient and allows them to send updates and complete tasks without leaving the program, which ensures you will always have the full history of the incident or project. Random papers, texts, and emails are a thing of the past.

Reduced IT Costs

The system is already built and maintained by a third party. This means your IT team can focus on their own security systems, help Deborah in HR get into her email, and finally figure out what is going on with that stupid printer on the third floor! When an IT department is given the freedom to focus energy outside of development, your costs go down and their efficiency increases.

Continuity

Your headquarters in Houston can speak flawlessly with the Oklahoma and Pennsylvania fields. Everyone is on the same page: every single manager, every single fieldworker has the ability to speak the same language and report incidents and updates the same way. No more interpreting each field’s special vernacular.

Permanent Archive

Those file cabinets in the back of the HR Department that everyone dreads drudging through are a thing of the past. Everything is archived in one spot: the cloud. Print on command, weeks, months, or years later. When you need it, it’s there, easy to find.

The Importance of Securing Site Assets

  Jodi Rell, who served as the 87th governor of Connecticut, said, “At the end of the day, the goals are simple: safety and security.” How very true. Yet while the goals may be simple, the means to achieve them can be complex and costly. The oil and gas industries require multiple insurances: general liability, […]

California Screaming

  In a previous blog, we discussed pipeline safety and the main causes of pipeline leaks. While it did cite some statistics about spill incidents affecting U.S. waterways, the article focused more on leaks occurring at overland pipelines.  Today’s focus is on offshore spills, specifically along the southern California coastline. What we know so far […]
