Many oil & gas companies grow by acquisition, buying assets with disparate automation technologies.
Some O&G companies stand up point-source solutions to address issues within a particular asset.
Little thought or planning is given to how the data can be leveraged at the enterprise level.
This is a natural pattern to follow, however it leads to the dreaded “Islands of Automation and Stranded Data”.
Islands of Automation usually take about 10 years to develop and $20 million of spend before it becomes unmanageable and very expensive to support. The cost to the corporation in locating and exploiting the stranded data is probably 5 times the $20 million hard spend.
