Paradigm unveils new open and integrated platform
Sep 26, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --
Paradigm, a developer of software-enabled solutions to the oil and gas industry, has unveiled Paradigm Epic, an open and integrated platform included in the Paradigm 2014 release.
In addition to Epic, Paradigm 2014 presents game-changing workflows for full-azimuth imaging, tomography, formation evaluation, facies analysis, and modeling. Paradigm Epic will be released in stages, beginning with the infrastructure that will unify Paradigm's suite of applications into a single integrated console, scheduled for release this year. Connectors to third-party platforms such as Petrel, JavaSeisand ArcGIS, will also become available in 2013 and early 2014, augmenting pre-existing connections into OpenWorks, GeoFrame and OpenSpirit.
Paradigm applications are already integrated at the database level through the Epos infrastructure. Epic will add a common user interface to this integration, reducing the learning curve between applications, and making information shareable in real time. The ability to create custom workflow templates for common geoscientific procedures will help bring advanced science to everyone, as generalist users will now be able to work with advanced workflows that previously required specialized expertise.
The new platform ensures unprecedented interconnectivity among third-party applications. Developers will be able to integrate their applications into Epic royalty-free, using either an application-level plug-in or through the underlying Epos database. Developers connecting into the platform will be free to build similar plug-ins for any other vendor.
"This is the first time that users will be able to select specific applications from Paradigm to connect into their existing primary platform," said Duane Dopkin, executive vice-president of Technology at Paradigm.
"No longer will they have to compromise on 'good enough' solutions in order to enjoy efficient product integration and multi-disciplinary collaboration. By enabling the use of Paradigm best-of-breed applications with existing third-party solutions, we will be closer than ever to making our advanced science available to everyone."
