The technology and the offshore sector are closely linked. The exploration of oil in deep water, as well as the discovery of new fields in the sea or land, was only possible with technological advances and the aid of new equipment that was emerging over time. With the constant growth of the oil and gas market in the world, organizations have realized the need to deploy operating systems that offer more logistical control, efficiency and reduced production costs.
The oil and gas industry has been at the forefront of technological innovation and high-performance computing since the years 1980, and each year, invests more in technological solutions and innovations in order to generate incremental improvements in productivity and profitability. Among the digital advances that have increased the efficiency of the oil and gas industry is the cloud storage system.
Companies such as Brasoftware, Sapiena Tecnologia, FTI Consulting, T2T technology, offer products and technological solutions to large oil companies and shipbuilding and offshore corporations, as a way to broaden their resources and reduce costs. Cloud services have come to stay, especially in the offshore sector, which is an area that needs a range of logistical actions.
To get an idea, the engineering area, for example, needs complex processing that requires computational power, due to the range of information generated from various physical locations that needs to be centralized and made available in real time. By storing this information in cloud software, such as "Microsoft Azure," communication costs, cabling, and physical datacenters drastically reduce, as well as generate value and promote more logistical control to companies.
