Data-as-a-Service (DaaS) serves the collaborative needs of the Energy and Chemical industry where the company needing access to real-time data is different from that generating the data. It includes our WellShare, WebTechnician, PowerShare, WebVMI and MeterShare services.
The benefits of DaaS with KBC
DaaS acts as a broker between data generators and data recipients.
Because it is delivered as a cloud service, it means that the parties can simply connect existing data infrastructure (data loggers, smart devices, SCADA, historians, etc.) to the DaaS hub to send and/or receive data - no party typically has to install or maintain special equipment. A web-based portal is also available for visualization, reporting and notifications.
Because DaaS operates at arm’s length to each party, some of the benefits enjoyed are:
- No additional IT support burden
- Expandable and scalable
- Conforms with each parties’ existing standards
- Cost effective, secure and reliable
- Avoids anti-trust issues (when the parties are also competitors)
With WellShare, oil and gas producers can manage the performance of their assets even though operated by a 3rd party or joint venture partner. With WebTechnician, chemical companies manufacturing products sold on the basis of their performance can track the performance through their customer’s operations in real-time. With PowerShare, renewable energy generators can monitor assets operated by different contractors as a single fleet, by financial portfolio or by technology set. Other similar services serve the needs of vendor-managed inventory (WebVMI) and pipeline nominations (MeterShare).
