Subsea engineering analysis consultancy, AgileTek, has launched AgileDat, a new business division focused on using data to make decisions in the energy sector.
AgileDat has been developed to service the renewables and oil and gas sectors, and is dedicated to software development, cloud architecture, data science, monitoring and The Internet of Things.
The division was created in response to the acceleration of digital change, led by the slump in the oil price. As the energy sector recognises the benefits that technological investment can bring, such as maximising economic recovery, providing safer ways of working and reducing costs, the importance of collecting and using data has grown exponentially.
AgileTek has already successfully used its proprietary AEL Cloud platform on a number of projects for European windfarms and it will now form a large part of AgileDat’s offering, as the shift towards operating in harsher and more remotely operated oil and gas fields also requires a move towards using modern, cloud-based enterprise applications.
AgileTek Managing Director, Steve Rossiter said: “AgileDat opens up an exciting range of new possibilities, allowing us to enhance our digital offering and offer unrivalled multidisciplinary expertise. We have experienced significant growth and success in this area within AgileTek and for us, the launch of this new division is a natural step from client and industry demand.
“Software advances now allow offshore energy companies to make faster and more accurate decisions, improve project timelines and predict potential risks. Through merging our knowledge of the offshore environment with the latest in distributed systems, our developers use the latest technologies to provide responsive and cost-effective solutions.”
