  • Oil & gas imperatives Enhance exploration and production - find oil and gas faster and lift more efficientlyModernize processes, workflows and technology infrastructuresImproving exploration in new areas in deeper layers Use of new technologies for stimulation operations and seismic surveysImprove refining and manufacturing efficiency – for profitable operationsMaintain costs, meet regulatory demands and gain transparency into operations, while maintaining financial viabilityBuild efficient administrative and oilfield management processesOptimize global operations – for managed growthAlign incentives for service quality and outcomesGain real time enterprise level data
  • Endpoint Management supports the following features :BigFix technology in the software helps in supporting the sudden virus and malware attacks by identifying the exact patches to the correct endpoints across the network within the oilfields . The control is provided by a single management console .This approach provides effective decision making to the endpoints.Manages configurations for connection and content delivery functions such as email, VPNs and wireless networks making the platforms secure and maintaining privacyProvides Precise and up-to-the minute visibility into and continuous implementation of security configurations and patches. The intelligent agent built into the IBM solution autonomously initiates update and configuration actions to keep the endpoint current and compliant with organizational policies .
  • This figure shows a typical lifecycle of IEM in the life cycle of processes for Endpoint Management.IBM endpoint management solutionsIBM endpoint management solution meets the needs of the oil and gas enterprises with a centralized management solution that performs multiple tasks across multiple platforms and devicesCan support up to 250,000 endpoints from a single management server, regardless of network connectivityIts unified console and easy-to-use graphical user interface provides visibility to all endpointsSupports using endpoint information to optimize budgeting and security decisions for upgrades, change control, and other asset-related initiatives and expenses.Forms an ideal platform for asset management, software inventory and distribution, vulnerability assessment, automated malware defense, compliance and policy enforcement, power conservation and patch management—without compromising network performance or end-user productivity
