Oil and gas companies must process high volumes of resource exploration, power generation and transmission, and product distribution data. Utility companies and retail stores in the supply chain must process and protect financial and marketing data related to billing sales, promotion, transportation, employee pensions, etc.
The IRI Voracity platform and its primary CoSort "SortCL" engine play a primary role in integrating and staging structured sources of energy industry transaction data so it can be organized and sub-setted for OLAP databases and BI tools.
There are also challenges related to protecting formulas and personally identifiable information (PII) in data sources, and in master data management (MDM), because mergers and acquisitions require frequent data, metadata, and application platform standardization. Voracity's data governance, metadata, and MDM frameworks are designed to address these data stewardship issues, too.
IRI customers in this industry include:
- Cooper Power
- Kern River Gas
- Portland General Electric
- Shell Oil
- Texas Utilities
