Who We Are
From the outset of his Oil and Gas career, Charles Ro recognized the potential for stronger data infrastructure. He began a software company to address some of these issues, with Chris Campbell set to serve as database architect. With the downturn in oil, the project was put on the shelf . . . which wound up being the best thing which could have happened. In that time, Charles realized two things: 1.) There are too many software packages for oil and gas companies. 2.) They ask companies to change how they do things which can become more of a problem than what the software is solving.
Instead, we formed a consultancy to build data warehouses/lakes for upstream companies. Since 80%-90% of our work is repeatable, there is still a high degree of cost efficiency for our clients. But that last 10%-20% is the most important part and differentiates what we do. Rather than companies fitting into software, your data fits into your work. Hence The Energy Data Group was born.
