The combination will help reduce data barriers for the energy companies and reduce the cost, time, and resources required to streamline their operations, further enabling a smooth transition to sustainable energy options.

Management Weighs In

Bill Vass, VP of Engineering at AWS, commented, “Much of the data needed to solve the complex energy challenges, such as superior subsurface decisions, already exists, yet is untapped. This is because one of the greatest values of that data is derived when it can be effectively combined, but usually this data is locked by data residency requirements, legacy applications or proprietary data formats.”

He added, “By collaborating with IBM and leveraging Red Hat OpenShift, we will be able to offer customers a global, seamless offering with the flexibility to run on virtually any IT infrastructure and drive longer-term digital innovation.”
