T his integrated energy company ranks among the top 10 publicly traded companies in the world. With more than 90,000 employees and operations in more than 90 countries, they face enormous operational, regulatory, and legal challenges when managing information.
Observing the aftermath of the Deepwater Horizon event in the Gulf of Mexico, this client recognized an urgent need to quickly and confidently access all relevant information about its production wells across the U.S. and Canada. Prior to engaging Access Sciences, this information was managed by eight different client asset teams (e.g. Gulf of Mexico, Canada, etc.) in eight very different ways. One asset team used the client’s standard enterprise content management (ECM) system, another used a different ECM system, a third used a project drive (network file share), while a fourth used employee laptops and desktop hard drives. Where there were file naming or organization conventions, they were inconsistently applied across asset teams, and in several cases, were nonexistent. Finding relevant files, much less finding them quickly or confidently, was next to impossible.
