Landmark Field Services specializes in Right of Way land rights acquisition for the oil & gas industry. Landmark utilizes the latest data storage and distribution technologies to manage the myriad data associated with providing first class right of way services to its clients.
In the course of its business, Landmark Field Services collects, manages and stores critical data. “This includes comprehensive geographical data, a database of information related to land ownership as well as tenancies and legal documents,” Tom Morris, Chief Technology Officer explained. “Since our teams are spread out in field offices and mobile locations, it’s critical for our team to have access to current data and to have the ability to contribute to the collection wherever they are.”
Landmark operates what it calls its “Cloud Datacenter” in Ft. Worth, Texas. It utilizes several cloud services, including Box and Dropbox, as well as Microsoft SharePoint and network file-shares. “The challenge was how to tether all of these platforms together,” explained Tom. “Our cloud-based information management system had to be robust and highly available in the face of fast moving projects. Each area, however, speaks its own language. We needed a solution that could tie them all together. Something that was completely agnostic.”
