Cegal and Microsoft create collaborative cloud-based applications on Microsoft Energy Data Services
As an ISV and specialist systems integrator for the energy industry, Cegal has always placed great emphasis on breaking down data silos to free organizations from outdated constraints that can lead to reduced productivity. Opening up to universal access to one of the most critical assets in any organization—knowingly, data—is an obvious path to innovation. Integrating proprietary IP into existing workflows, contextualizing data through new AI-based routines, and integrating best-of-breed applications to create new and innovative solutions are critical steps towards more efficient and productive operations.
To achieve this goal, Cegal and Microsoft worked closely together over several months during which several relevant use cases were thoroughly evaluated and tested on the Microsoft Energy Data Services platform. From running the platform to developing new solutions on it, Cegal had the opportunity to contextualize a wide range of scenarios to ensure the experience was as comprehensive as possible, yet realistic for the energy industry.
Cegal was recently released Cetegra, a cloud-based platform that offers its users a modern, collaborative environment specially tailored to the specific needs of the energy industry in terms of digitization and data management. Delivered via a fully scalable pay-as-you-go model, Cetegra leverages the strengths of the Microsoft Cloud and offers full support for the Microsoft Energy Data Services platform. Cetegra with Microsoft Energy Data Services offers a one-stop shop for all types of data and applications that are tightly linked to OSDU and offers energy stakeholders a deep integration of their application portfolio, which also enables them to develop new applications within the and to test Cetegra innovation space without affecting existing business operations.
