The Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) is where energy professionals meet to exchange ideas and opinions to advance scientific and technical knowledge for offshore resources and environmental matters.
In 2016 in was held 2-5 May, Houston, TX. OTC gives access to leading-edge technical information, the industry’s largest equipment exhibition, and valuable new professional contacts.
SoftElegance took part at the conference and attended the exhibition to share the knowledge and best practices of custom software development for oil and gas and energy industries.
Today’s oil and gas industry needs a common IT reference architecture for use by upstream organizations, system integrators (Sis), solution providers and software development companies.
A single architectural approach will encourage simplification and unification in the upstream sector. It will also give Sis, solution providers and software development companies an established environment within which to design and build solutions, while allowing upstream operators to design architectures as a requirement for potential vendors.
The oil and gas IT community is now adopting Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA) as a more flexible and responsive alternative to traditional hard connections between applications and source data.
