RTI Presents "Data Centricity: The Key to Automating the Processes of a Drilling Rig" Complimentary Webinar

RTI Presents

RTI Market Development Director, Oil and Gas to Share Benefits of Implementing Data-Centric Technology in Oil & Gas Environments

SUNNYVALE, Calif.— April 26, 2018—Real-Time Innovations (RTI), the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) connectivity company, today announced it is hosting a complimentary webinar, "Data Centricity: The Key to Automating the Processes of a Drilling Rig."

Current automation and system integration in the upstream market is failing to meet the growing technological needs of the market space. A retiring workforce, volatility in oil prices, depreciation of conventional drilling and the need to digitize the oilfield is challenging the industry to break existing paradigms. Inspiration from other industries is driving truly innovative solutions to an industry which is more than fifty years behind.

In this webinar, RTI's Oil and Gas market development director, Mark Carrier, will discuss the ways RTI is looking to redefine the Oil & Gas industry with a radically advanced approach to automation, which safely and seamlessly integrates humans, existing mechanical equipment, machine learning and AI. Attendees will learn how RTI Connext DDS provides a connectivity framework which enables a purely data-centric approach versus a traditional hardware solution.

A data-centric approach enables the following system qualities:

  • Standardized data-model with well-defined behavior
  • Third-party integration through well-defined data models and Quality of Service on data
  • A clear delineation between process automation and machine control
  • Frees all market segment sectors from vendor lock-in.

This approach has an immediate impact on rig operations by reducing complexity in system integration, enforcing best practices through automation and dramatically improving safety, guaranteeing safe, consistent operations.
