Turn Data into Insight

 

Turn data into actionable information

With dispersed assets onshore and offshore, you need to monitor, manage and distribute tremendous volumes of field data—from the wellheads to the control room and data at the enterprise level. Our Proficy Historian Analysis software helps maximize the value of your data with powerful analytics. Thus, you can make decisions better, faster and smarter.

"You need to lay the foundation. That's not as sexy as the analytics that have an impact on your balance sheets. However, if you have the foundation set up, your ability to accelerate up that value continuum increases exponentially."
