Landmark has acquired UK-based Application Service Provider (ASP) ILEX Technologies for an undisclosed amount. ILEX will become the ASP component of Landmark’s Grand Basin electronic workplace. ILEX’s technology enables dynamic integration of legacy databases and automatic data catalog publishing.
Landmark president John Gibson said, “ILEX’s technology brings a fresh, practical approach that acknowledges there will always be different data formats, and provides a mechanism for capturing all the data required for a project. ILEX’s experience and technology mesh nicely with our ongoing plans to deliver ASP and DSP solutions, as well as IT outsourcing services to the marketplace.” ILEX has been piloting ASP-mode software distribution of Landmark and other vendor applications since it started up early last year.
Up till now ILEX has marketed its distributed offering in partnership with DMS over the oil partnering network (OPNet). With DMS now a Schlumberger company, and ILEX in the Landmark fold, PDM understands that this arrangement is up for review!
