Katalyst Data Management Opens New Digital Transformation Center in Houston
Katalyst Data Management announced that it has opened a second Digital Transformation Center (DTC2) in the Houston area. The new facility is expected to significantly increase production capacity for large-scale exploration and production digital transformation projects that are already under way.
In the past year, the company’s first Houston location reached maximum capacity, leading to the decision for a second location . DTC2 will serve to supplement operations so that digital transformation projects can continue to run safely and more efficiently as the subsurface data volumes flow through the process.
The current demand for digital transformation of subsurface data requires that massive amounts of physical data be transformed into modern formats, whether by tape transcription, scanning, or digitization and managed in a cloud environment. As data volumes move through the process to become digitized, more and more facility capacity is needed to meet the demands for each digital transformation project.
“We never thought when we moved into our Westpark facility that we would require additional space, but we were wrong. The explosion of subsurface digital transformation initiatives by our customers is a tremendous task, requiring a proven detailed work flow and capacity to provide the high-quality service in a safe environment for our employees and customers,” said Steve Darnell, the company's president and chief executive officer. “We now have over 64,000 ft2 of production facilities in the Houston area dedicated to subsurface data management and digital transformation. We anticipate that operational growth will continue as we lead the industry through all of the efforts it truly takes to implement digital transformation.”
