DataVera Release 8.18 Now Available from Petris

A brand new module for Master Data Management (MDM) called DataVera Master-Set™ has been introduced as part of DataVera Release 8.18. Developed in collaboration with clients who are using DataVera to implement MDM, this new Master-Set module combines existing features from HealthCheck, Clean and Match modules into a single module with improved functionality.

MasterSet can provide data quality governance across the entire enterprise, helping organizations manage the quality, consistency, usability and availability of data.

            The new module has advanced MDM rules to help users consolidate individual HealthCheck metrics across multiple data stores. In addition, it has more matching algorithms and E&P specific rules. Version 8.18 includes 700+ additional standards reference tables – based on the PPDM 3.8 reference tables – that a company can use to store their naming conventions. This version can also support International geodetic conversions. DataVera has integrated with ESRI’s ArcGIS Engine, which means that users can transform geospatial data into a common datum for geospatial data cleaning and matching.

            A challenge in managing multiple datasets is that the same attributes may follow different naming conventions (USA in one system, United States of America in another). Manage Alias Set allows users to group these inconsistencies and link them to a single standard value (USA = United States of America). With this feature, users can apply the new MasterSet HealthCheck to validate naming conventions across different systems and identify the ones that fall out of this alias set.

            In the past, DataVera could only support column-based units of measure (UOM). The latest version has a new interface and support for row-by-row conversions. When configured to look by row level, DataVera will look at the value and its corresponding UOM and complete the conversion at that row. DataVera comes with its own set of pre-established conversion algorithms, but similar to the rules repository, users are able to add their own UOM algorithms at any time.

            In addition, DataVera can now handle French and Italian datasets with Release 8.18.

Petris Updates Recall, Debuts Raven and Impetus

Petris Technology Inc., provider of data management solutions for the energy sector, announced a new release of Recall, a popular application for managing, storing and processing wellbore data. Version 5.3 includes major enhancements to data integration, workflow, search tools and database security.

Recall Version 5.3 also includes the RePhine module, a new wizard for petrophysical sensitivity and uncertainty analysis. Workflow is further improved through a Transfer Bucket and WITSML loader. Added to this is the PWE Recall browser, a powerful new Recall search tool, and improved Recall database security. The user will be able to see all data associated with the well, view attributes and select data for download. Individual logs or curves can be selected for plotting, and the user has control over the depth range to be plotted, plot format, depth scale, etc.

In conjunction with this new release, Petris is introducing two new major products, Raven and Impetus.

            Raven is a new suite of applications that run extensive investigations on data loaded into Recall databases and provide rule-based evaluation of data quality and metrics, thereby reducing the effort required to validate data. In addition, it will provide all the information necessary to improve the quality of – and user confidence in – borehole data. Raven features a graphical, interactive display that allows both management and technical staff to appraise data integrity rapidly and decide how it will be made available to the company’s geoscience community.

            Impetus is designed for casual or novice users of image data and is based on Recall’s well-established Log Image loading, processing and interpretation software. The emphasis is on guidance, visualization and ease of use, while adopting a familiar Windows-like interface for all operations. Impetus features a guided wizard for preparation of quality images from raw data (from any commercial imaging tool), and the image interpretation module is tightly coupled with the 3D viewer and dip pattern analysis tools.

Petris Unveils OneTouch Portal

At the 13th annual PNEC Data Management Conference in Houston, Petris Technology Inc. announced a brand-new integration of its PetrisWINDS Enterprise framework with both Microsoft Office SharePoint and ESRI’s ArcGIS geographical information system (GIS). The new PetrisWINDS OneTouch™ service brings global, multi-disciplinary asset teams together with data from many sources through a Web-based workspace and data environment – “one” place where you can “touch” all your data and collaborate with team members worldwide.

The PetrisWINDS Enterprise service-oriented architecture (SOA) solution provides the foundation for the OneTouch knowledge portal, where users can conduct business intelligence and analytics on real-time data feeds and communicate with others using social networking tools like instant messaging and wikis. The GIS map capabilities help users visualize federated data from multiple sources using bubble charts and map layers, with the ability to drill down deeper into the data for details.

Since around 69% of E&P companies have already adopted SharePoint and many of these also have ESRI ArcGIS, OneTouch leverages these technology investments by offering an easy-to-use, Web-based solution tailored specifically for oil and gas.

“The ESRI and Microsoft SharePoint platforms offer many out-of-the-box features, many of which exploit and amplify an organization’s existing infrastructure,” said Jim Pritchett, CEO of Petris. “Similarly, Petris has existing capabilities with its integration platform and well-entrenched applications in E&P.”

The OneTouch subscription service includes a hosted E&P Web Part Gallery for customers to access – and contribute – user interface designs and business intelligence routines alongside those developed by Petris. Think of it as the YouTube of oil and gas Web Parts. Petris will provide technical guidelines and portal standards to ensure functionality and interoperability of Web Parts submitted to this searchable, online gallery.

Partnership with Wipro for Deployment

To accelerate the deployment of the OneTouch technology worldwide, Petris has formed a strategic partnership with Wipro Technologies. The goal of the alliance is to pair Petris’ experience in complex E&P data management with Wipro’s global manpower, expertise and technology services. Wipro has more than 25 years of experience in delivering technology services on a global scale. The $5 billion company has 100,000 employees in 54 countries. All six of the largest oil companies are Wipro customers.

Because SharePoint and OneTouch deployments are highly configurable, the Petris-Wipro partnership will help customers build an effective solution for their own workflows, linking their proprietary data stores and applications in a searchable Web browser with excellent collaboration tools.

“We are excited to partner with Petris because of their extensive E&P data management expertise,” said Dayapatra Nevatia, head of Wipro’s Energy business. “Maintaining the effective synergy of data and technology will bring tremendous value to the E&P industry.”

Petris and Wipro will form hybrid teams comprised of one or two Petris employees plus 4-6 Wipro employees, some on location at the customer’s site and some in India to tap the expertise there. Using an “agile” software development technique, a rapid turnaround can take the “80% solution” that is OneTouch out of the box and configure it to customer workflows, data and requirements.

“To do the other 20% on a worldwide basis, we needed a worldwide company like Wipro,” Pritchett told PetroComputing. “SharePoint doesn’t get down to the data level.”

Petris VP John Wearing summed it up nicely: “Together we will be integrating the science end with the business end.”
