Data Management Webinars

Cloud Data Guidelines

Organizations in the resource sector are rapidly gaining experience with managing technical data in the cloud. As they increasingly look to commercial cloud offerings to manage their data, they are also identifying the need to develop a set of best practices and data governance principles for cloud data management.

In this webinar, we will consider data governance for organizations planning or expanding their use of cloud data platforms. Examples will include: how data governance enables more efficient access to existing petro-technical data, the unique challenges of working with data on clouds in jurisdictions with data sovereignty or data privacy considerations, and the way that data standards are being adopted and adapted for use with cloud data platforms.

Outsourcing Tape Services

Outsourcing Tape Services

There are a multitude of data storage media and devices that have been utilized in the energy industry, yet after decades, we are still investing in hardware that is used less frequently and needs replacing. Why is this? With an increase in working from home and general office downsizing, it may be time to question whether onsite media reading capabilities is even needed. Can ingestion of data occur without anyone in the company having to read it?

Craig Jones, Business Development Manager for Katalyst in the EAME region, will provide a quick look at how tape services can be outsourced and what benefits this can involve.
