Our products and services

KBC has 3 cloud service offerings: Data-as-a-Service (DaaS), Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), and Operational Excellence-as-a-Service (OpX-as-a-Service).

DaaS securely collects process data together with any applicable context from any source device or database system, and serves it up to any destination system, user or software application according to the their requirements.

Software receiving data in this manner can also be delivered as a cloud service (SaaS) where the application resides in the cloud, connected to its DaaS feed, and is available for users to access from any internet-connected computer, tablet or smart phone.

KBC's own users can access software, such as Petro-SIM, in the cloud to perform technical analysis and to make recommendations based on their observations and conclusions. We call this OpX-as-a-Service.
