Case Study on Cano Petroleum Inc

Kaseya has empowered IT operations to run more smoothly. Tasks that took hours or days before now just take moments. That results in fewer interruptions to the business; allowing thecompany to focus on business objectives rather that a “tech”taking up their workday installing patches and upgrades.
– Jon Morgan, Manager of Information Technology, Cano Petroleum.

As a publicly traded oil and gas company, Cano Petroleum, Inc. must comply with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, reliably accounting for all revenue streams and corporate expenditures in an effort to ensure transparency throughout the accounting process. The company uses innovative technology to extract additional oil and gas from mature fields throughout Texas, New Mexico and Oklahoma, necessitating the need to centralize compliance efforts through its headquarters in Ft.Worth.

For the IT department, ensuring SOX compliance means being able to account for all IT assets, making sure systems are maintained regularly and consistently, protected from malicious security threats like spyware and viruses, backed up properly and can be recovered easily in case of data loss. Cano also has to ensure that help desk issues are dealt with accordingly, corporate resources are not being used for personal use (within reason) and the company is in compliance with the software licensing agreements it has in place with vendors.

Case Study on Woodside

Study about Woodside

As an independent Australian oil and gas company, Woodside is one of the world’s leading producers of liquefied natural gas supporting cleaner energy demands. Following major gas discoveries off the North West shelf, Woodside has been engaged in huge programs of work, necessitating a large workforce distributed over several remote locations, often detached from systems, information and resources.

To address this challenge a cross-functional Ajilon team deployed a mobility solution on intrinsically safe devices over a secure wireless network. The mobility solution captured asset inspection data and synchronised the data from the field without requiring inspectors to return to the office. The mobility solution automatically creates auditable inspection records to AS/NZS 60079.17 EEHA standard and ERP asset extract to support inspections of over 100,000 functional locations.

Case Study Six Sigma Reduction of Days Sales Outstanding

In this six sigma case study, we look at a large oil and gas company which was on a mission to reduce their working capital in order to increase their cash flow. One of the metrics identified where there was opportunity for improvement was Days Sales Outstanding (DSO). This is the average number of days from the time your product is sent out until the time the payment for that product is in the bank. The DSO currently was almost 200 days for some large sites. The average credit term that was given to customers was 60 days. This showed that there is definitely some room for improvement internally because there is a 140-day gap between the two numbers.
