Case Study: Cimarex


Cimarex is a large oil and gas exploration and production company based in Denver, Colorado, with over 1000 employees located across the U.S. With a team of only three engineers and an average of 600 to 700 people on the network at any given time, identifying and evaluating delays while providing a quick response time was an important issue for the engineering team.
