Data Management has quickly become a business imperative necessary to meet the continued demand of maintaining high quality data across the enterprise. While many organizations focus on enterprise data management solutions they struggle with the balance of data management that is valuable and relevant to all levels of the organization. Enterprise solutions typical start as a wider data management solution while neglecting localized business data management problems. What compounds the issue is that each part of the organization has a different perspective on the value and usage of the data. This is especially true in the E&P industry regarding Well data.
