ERP for the Oil and Gas Industry (Upstream)

The model of ERP systems for the upstream oil and gas sector addresses the particularly specialized business model of this industry. It is common practice for companies, individuals, and government agencies to form partnerships to explore, develop, and share production of oil wells. More often than not, this is a short-term alliance rather than a long-term partnership, and business structuring must therefore be flexible at initial set-up and throughout the lifespan of the venture. This model of ERP systems includes criteria for financials, human resources, production data capture and reporting, maintenance management, and supply chain management (SCM) functionality.

Blending Transactions and Analytics in a Single In-Memory Platform: Key to the Real-Time Enterprise


This white paper discusses the issues involved in the traditional practice of deploying transactional and analytic applications on separate platforms using separate databases. Rather than using separate transactional and analytical applications built on separate platforms, a single data management environment for both systems of record and systems of decision would yield numerous benefits. These include real-time data analysis and accelerated decision making, and the potential to transform and innovate the business.
