Statoil's research department in Porsgrunn carries out testing of new solutions, for example for use on offshore platforms. They work on monitoring/testing of equipment in Porsgrunn before it can be deployed offshore. Before the hardware/software is deployed, it must undergo extensive tests, which entail software and hardware running 24/7 for extended periods.
Personnel depend on continuous monitoring to reveal any faults and defects. This is in order to be certain that when systems are deployed, they will be 100% in line with organizational requirements and standards. Their problem was that they lacked the opportunity for 24/7 monitoring due to the limitations of working hours. They thus depended on returning to work after hours to check that everything was in order and/or rectify faults.
Before they got the Nordigi MOBILITY Cloud Service solution, a lot of time was spent travelling, on phone calls and e-mails to check the status. "With Nordigi's solution now installed, they can follow testing at all times. Now they are notified of important events on mobile devices, and can follow developments regardless of where they are. At work, at home, out shopping, on holiday/weekends, etc. In Porsgrunn the monitoring values from the trials are fed to an Osisoft PI process-database. Nordigi retrieves monitoring values from PI and sends these to the Nordigi database via the Internet and secure connections (HTTPS/SSL). Nordigi checks the monitoring values and sends e-mails or Twitter notifications if anything is amiss. Nordigi MOBILITY is a cloud solution that requires only that you have Internet access, i.e. you may use mobile devices (iPhone, Android, tablets, etc.) or log on via a browser (Chrome, Firefox, etc.) to access important information and alerts.
Nordigi MOBILITY is easy to learn and easy to use. An administrator can easily configure which data is to be accessible via Nordigi.
- The creation of separate groups for selected data.
- The selection of which users have access to which data.
- The configuration of rules for notifications, etc.
