Ikon Science, a provider of geoprediction and open subsurface knowledge management software and services has announced a collaboration with information technology consulting company Wipro Ltd. that will enable companies to accelerate their digital transformation even if they use legacy databases by leveraging Curate, Ikon’s scalable, cloud-enabled, subsurface knowledge management solution.

Digital transformation initiatives often compromise end users by creating siloed data and complexity. The partnership between Ikon Science and Wipro addresses this by using Curate as the focal point of a comprehensive and scalable digital transformation solution.

Curate uses best-of-breed technology, user knowledge management and geopredictive applications to empower energy companies to leverage and contextualize disparate existing data regardless of source. With Curate, companies attain superior data democratization and gain business insights that drive faster and more-accurate decision making. The innovative platform helps companies accelerate exploration, minimize portfolio risk and optimize production activities, achieving greater results while preserving capital and human resources for a stronger bottom line.

Wipro’s deep domain expertise in the energy value chain, backed by strong capabilities in new and emerging technologies, helps enable businesses to accelerate their cloud migration and digital transformation agenda. Wipro will leverage Curate as one of its technology solutions in the delivery of factory-scale, superior quality, legacy data migration to cloud platforms, including OSDU and other industry or energy company-specific repositories. Wipro is a significant contributor to the OSDU community and a leading deployment and operationalization partner for the OSDU data platform.

“Geoscience teams can derive immediate value from our strategic partnership with Wipro to realize true digital transformation,” explained Dr. Denis Saussus, CEO of Ikon Science. “Combining Curate with Wipro’s ecosystem of technology partners and industry solutions will democratize data for Wipro’s clients, promoting greater usability, competitive advantage, greater efficiencies and ROI.”

Sidharth Mishra, vice president and global lead for energy domain and consulting Services, Wipro Ltd. stated, “We look forward to helping energy companies unleash the potential of data analytics and unlock value from their legacy digital assets through cloud migration. Ikon’s cloud-ready Curate platform is a powerful strategic fit with Wipro’s established upstream services capability.”
