Founded over 30 years ago, Tessella supplies data analytics, mathematical modeling and specialist engineering software services into the global Oil & Gas industry. Over this same period, Tessella has also delivered high technology services into other industries, such as space, defense, nuclear energy, transport, “big science” research, and life sciences. At first sight, these sectors appear to have little in common with each other. Our experience is, however, quite different. Despite the world being ever more connected data-wise, it remains relatively poor at sharing knowledge on how to solve complex problems. But look hard enough and you can find, after applying a few twists, that you can link unsolved problems in one domain to solved problems in another. Sometimes the key to finding a solution is knowing that such a solution exist in another domain and having the ability to make the translation between domains. Tessella’s multi-industry experience means we are ideally placed to make innovative technology transfer a reality. In this talk, we will present some powerful stories of how techniques and experience from one sector have crossed industry boundaries. With the relentless appetite for data-driven analytics, the potential to exploit this is greater than ever. However, examples of making analytics really deliver are in short supply, so actual experience from any sector becomes all the more valuable. The ability to harness proven solutions, in a form that matches your specific needs, is an essential part of a mature approach to data analytics, in any sector.
