Katalyst Data Management Updates New Office in Perth

Our Perth Location Has Moved

family photo1.1Katalyst Data Management’s Asia-Pacific team in Perth recently moved offices, and we could not be happier with our new location. No longer in the physical storage business, the previous location was no longer suitable, as we’ve completely transitioned to digital storage. Katalyst decided to make the move from their previous location in Mount Hawthorn to their new facility at 5 Gibberd Road in Balcatta, as it was much better suited to the company’s subsurface data management processes.

The move itself was a huge feat, and the team from not just Perth, but our other Asia-Pacific and North America offices really came together to pull it off without a hitch. It was quite an undertaking to complete everything in 5 weeks, and everyone involved did an outstanding job!

Geoscientists and data managers must find a way to “mind the gap” caused by missing data records as they begin to reconcile their seismic database through a data compliance process.  Having a methodical approach to dividing and conquering the volumes of records associated with seismic data assets will help ensure that the new datasets are truly complete and workstation ready.
