FD (AIM: FDP.L, ESM: FDP.I) announces that it has been selected by a leading global oilfield services company for the use of Kx technology to provide operational intelligence for their customers’ oil and gas field assets. This contract, awarded after a thorough technology evaluation by the client, extends the range of Kx use cases within the energy market and showcases the ability of Kx to deliver actionable insights at the edge.
The flexibility and open nature of the Kx platform will enable new processes and data-intensive analytics to be added as required both in the field and centrally.
Using Kx technology to deliver big data levels of analytic capability to the edge, where compute resources are limited, will enable the client to increase efficiency. This represents a new use case for Kx, which the client expects to generate a high return on investment and should be of interest across the broader energy and industrial IoT markets.
Seamus Keating, Chief Executive Officer, FD commented: “Making decisions at the time and place where action is required can deliver major operational efficiencies. We believe Kx is the only technology capable of delivering this solution, enabling decision-making in real-time on vast volumes of data. As organisations increasingly look to drive action, not just reports from the data they generate, Kx stands out for its high performance and ability to operate at the edge.”
