Turn Data into Insight

With dispersed assets onshore and offshore, you need to monitor, manage and distribute tremendous volumes of field data—from the wellheads to the control room and data at the enterprise level. Our Proficy Historian Analysis software helps maximize the value of your data with powerful analytics. Thus, you can make decisions better, faster and smarter.

“You need to lay the foundation. That's not as sexy as the analytics that have an impact on your balance sheets. However, if you have the foundation set up, your ability to accelerate up that value continuum increases exponentially.”

Jim Walsh, General Manager,
GE Intelligent Platforms, Software and Service


Proficy Historian: Better data = better decisions

Operational excellence begins with understanding your data. Our Proficy Historian software delivers meaningful context to vast amounts of raw data from across your oil and gas operations.  A powerful enterprise-wide historian, it aggregates islands of information for true process visibility. And it feeds higher-level operations management systems with real-time information.

Enabling Your Workforce

The face of the O&G workforce is changing drastically. And so are the tools needed to support them. With demand for anytime anywhere access to information, especially on tablets and smartphones, mobile solutions for the workforce are not a luxury but a critical necessity.

ge enabling your workforce

That's where GE's Real-time Operational Intelligence (RtOI) comes in. Our RtOI solution empowers workers by delivering the right information to the right people at the right time. It turns vast amounts of raw data into simple, actionable knowledge, so your workforce can share more info in context and at all levels of your organization—from the control room to the oil fields.

The result: an empowered workforce and higher productivity.
