The tag line for SIRIUS is “Scalable Data access in the Oil and Gas domain”. This tag line also perfectly represents the core of KADME business and is the driver behind our Whereoil technology.
KADME stands for “Knowledge And Data Management Expertise”, and our team is composed of experts that have been working to improve access to data within the Oil and Gas industry, even before the creation of the company in 2002. Some of us have been involved with DISKOS, the E&P National Data Repository of Norway since its inception in 1993.
Whereoil provides modern and efficient methods for managing the increasing volumes of data that is collected by this industry every day. To unlock the full potential of this data, companies need to digitally transform their business and get ready to take advantage of new technologies such as machine learning, cloud computing and artificial intelligence.
Whereoil gives our customers a rapid path to achieve their digitalization efforts, with effective methods to search, access and connect this data making it available for interpretation and analysis by both humans and machines. Companies that use Whereoil include Petronas, Lukoil and Lundin. Maybe the most relevant and visible example of how KADME is helping the oil industry to modernize management of E&P data is the DISKOS data repository in Norway, which is built on a Whereoil-based solution operated in collaboration by CGG, KADME and EVRY.
As a small and successful company, KADME is constantly bringing innovation quickly into our roadmap while at the same time working hard to please the more specific needs of our current customers and business partners. In this scenario, participation in the SIRIUS centre is very important, as it gives us access to a wider forum in which to exchange and validate research ideas. In 2018 KADME will be involved in several SIRIUS projects. Our primary focus will be on a more efficient use of data from National Data Repositories and on improved methodologies to create relationships between information items and the work processes that have generated them.
