Anadarko Petroleum Corporation is an American petroleum and natural gas exploration and production company headquartered in two skyscrapers in The Woodlands, Texas. In addition to exploration and production, the company engages in petroleum and natural gas gathering, processing, treating, and transportation.
In 2015, when the price of oil dropped suddenly and dramatically, Anadarko Petroleum Corporation did not go into hibernation mode; instead, the company leveraged the Denodo Platform to radically transform its analytics capabilities, so it could more effectively respond to the changes.
The Denodo Platform uses data virtualization to establish a universal, real-time data-access layer across many of Anadarko’s key data sources, including transactional sources and cloud-based sources. Leveraging the Denodo Platform, Anadarko established a cloud-based repository for industry subscription data, seamlessly covering multiple vendors, data types, and access protocols, and a logical data mart, streamlining organizational change by instituting standard data definitions across a wide variety of assets.
“The Denodo Platform has significantly changed the way we approach data, and the way we interact with users,” says Quinn Lewis, Anadarko’s integration and platform services manager. “[The new analytics infrastructure] provides a common, shared platform for IT and the business side. The platform balances that quick response with a managed, governed approach, in a shared environment.”
