Upstream data granularity and its impact on business value
Data granularity plays an important role when dealing with big data analytics in the upstream industry. The real value lies in the small data (granular) and the fast data (time). The upstream has all the four characteristics of big data – velocity, veracity, volume, and variety. This article adds another perspective to data granularity.
In this article, the author has viewed an oil and gas company as a data production line, where data flows between different departments. At each step, some data value is lost. Business value can be maximized if data is captured in the most granular form and is fed into enterprise applications as quickly as possible. The ability of enterprises to do this will prove to be a key differentiator.
