C&J Energy Services has successfully implemented the MapR Converged Data Platform running on Microsoft Azure to support its legacy financial systems' decommissioning.
Working closely with Sullexis, a leading systems integrator with expertise in the oil and gas industry, C&J has archived data from seven legacy ERPs and enabled business reporting against the historical data to support compliance, regulatory, and business needs. Using MapR for this initiative proved to be significantly cheaper and faster than traditional methods of maintaining these systems or archiving to a data warehouse.
Key criteria for selecting the MapR Converged Data Platform hosted on Microsoft Azure included the ability to operate at scale, safeguard data, and provide consistent uptime. C&J also uses Apache Drill to quickly and easily tap into the historical ERP data and make it accessible for analysis via familiar BI tools, like Microsoft SSRS and SAP Lumira. C&J sees the MapR environment as being a significant platform for innovation and has already already deployed a more typical big data use case that has looked at pump data to help support vendor warranty claims.
“The MapR platform significantly lowered upfront costs and required relatively lower skilled labor to deploy. The platform now provides the ability to merge structured and unstructured data, and makes data available to our users through our existing BI tools. Further, the solution will serve as our core data and analytics platform for any future big data opportunities.”
