ERP for the Oil and Gas Industry (Upstream) Software Evaluation Report

The model of ERP systems for the upstream oil and gas sector addresses the particularly specialized business model of this industry. It is common practice for companies, individuals, and government agencies to form partnerships to explore, develop, and share production of oil wells. More often than not, this is a short-term alliance rather than a long-term partnership, and business structuring must therefore be flexible at initial set-up and throughout the lifespan of the venture. This model of ERP systems includes criteria for financials, human resources, production data capture and reporting, maintenance management, and supply chain management (SCM) functionality.

Why Business Intelligence Makes Sense for Midsize Companies


Business intelligence—or decision support—allows you to better understand, analyze, and predict what’s occurring within your company. BI turns data from financial, manufacturing, and sales systems into useful and meaningful information and then distributes it to people who need it. Midsize organizations have limited resources, so a BI solution should deliver low cost of ownership through off-the-shelf integration.

Business Services and Consulting


There are several ways to define the business services and consulting industry, but they all make a clear distinction between business services (services a client cannot or does not want to perform in-house) and consulting (services that will improve a client's activities). Of course, these two different types of activities can be combined into one, depending on the client's requirements.

However, the line between the two types is sometimes blurry. For instance, a company may provide shipping logistics services for a client (or for the client's clients), in the sense that it handles the shipping of goods for the client; but it can also provide consulting services (or extend its own logistics services) to help the client improve the transportation system already in place.
