Oil and gas company accelerates catalyst research

A major oil and gas company has chosen Accelrys to develop an integrated solution that will accelerate the company's catalysis research and discovery, and to improve the performance of the resulting catalysts.

Under the terms of the agreement, Accelrys' professional services team will design and develop a centralised database to enable data from multiple locations to quickly and easily flow into one database. The solution will utilise Accelrys' SciTegic Enterprise Server platform (SES) and will enable the collection, mining and analysis of data with intelligent decision support capabilities in order to accelerate the research and development process. The solution is expected to be completed within the next 12 months and is anticipated to result in approximately a million dollars in revenues from software and services.

SES is a powerful client-server platform that streamlines the integration and analysis of the vast quantities of data flooding research informatics. SES provides an agile development environment, fast and secure deployment, minimal maintenance costs, and application extensibility. Utilising SES, this customer will derive greater value from its information resources through enterprise-scale data flow control, extensive data mining capabilities, and effective reporting.
