Ensyte, OSBC, Talend team on gas data migration

Open source data specialists team on Microsoft migration project.

One of Ensyte’s Gastar clients recently acquired a company with several thousand wells on its books. Well data resided in multiple legacy systems, including Microsoft Excel and Access, a check filing system and a risk management tool. As more data sources were uncovered, Ensyte partnered with Open Source Business Consulting (OSBC) to evaluate migration options. OSBC recommended Talend’s data migration toolset based on its previous migration projects. Talend offers ‘drag and drop’ functionality across disparate data sources and shaved ‘weeks, even months’ off the project. OSBC also provided data cleansing and validation services.

The project included data integration of Gastar with the client’s SAP ERP and customer management system. The release claims that the skill sets of OSBC and Talend constitute a ‘competitive offering’ to natural gas companies looking to integrate and streamline business processes. It is interesting to observe that the OSBC and Talend’s specialist knowledge of open source methodology was required to migrate data from ‘Excel and Access’ into Ensyte’s Microsoft software stack.
