August 3, 2012 - Datum360, supplier of services and solutions to help Oil & Gas companies specify, capture and manage engineering information for capital intensive projects, has announced that it is to provide innovative software solutions that that will set new standards for managing Engineering Information in the Oil & Gas industry.
As a result of more than 20 years experience, of implementation & consultancy using Information Management (IM) technologies for Oil & Gas projects, Datum360 has developed technology solutions that provide groundbreaking new capabilities that are not available in existing technology solutions.
The first of these is PIM360, a Project Information Management solution that manages the acquisition, conditioning, cleansing and delivery of engineering information, to ensure that information conforms to both the business validation rules and the class library that defines the data. PIM360 is designed to be complementary and work together with all other IM technologies.
The major innovation with PIM360 is the automatic acquisition of clean data into the Engineering Information database. It is unique in providing fast and flawless loading of trusted data into other systems such as ERP, maintenance management or other design or engineering information management technologies, many of which do not tolerate data which is not as it should be.
PIM360 is supplied as Software as a Service (SaaS,) making it very easy and quick to deploy. It is easy to populate, fast and easy to configure. It processes and assures information in real-time with full feedback of information progress metrics to the project team. This results in rapid project set-up, increased data governance & integrity and reduced timescales & costs.
Steve Wilson, Chief Executive of Datum360 said, "The big challenge in assembling all of the engineering information, that is needed for effective handover, is to acquire the data in the right format from many different contractors, IT systems, and technologies and load this into the appropriate Operator’s systems. The announcement of PIM360, now provides data, that is ‘as-it-should-be’, using automated processes that save time and reduce costs."
