Paradigm and Interica Partner to Enhance E&P Project Archiving

Paradigm expands industry alliances to enhance customer workflows through synergetic offerings

HOUSTON - Paradigm® ( today announced that it is partnering and collaborating with information services and software company Interica to license the Paradigm Epos® software for Interica's PARS® E&P Application Aware Project Archiving and Retrieval solution.  This relationship further expands the scope of the Paradigm global industry alliance initiative to better serve the challenging data management, archiving, and storage requirements of the oil and gas industry.

Interica will provide expanded support for project aware archiving and backup of exploration and production data residing in Paradigm Epos projects through Interica's PARS software solution. The advanced archiving solution allows a company to manage complex digital content for long-term knowledge retention, compliance and storage management.  Detailed project metadata is stored within the archive to enable the rapid location and restoration of projects.  By integrating Epos software, Interica can enhance the metadata collected for each Epos archive.  It also expands the archiving options available to Paradigm software users and ensures continuity in project archiving as customers continue to adopt the latest Paradigm releases.

Paradigm Epos presents an agile, distributed database that removes the constraints and data duplication requirements of legacy systems.  Mature, flexible, and feature-rich, the Epos database can be easily adapted to changing performance requirements and storage locations as datasets change and grow.

"The power of PARS archiving lies in its ability to interface with the leading E&P applications used by exploration specialists around the world today," said Chris Bearce, VP Operations at Interica. "We recognize the leading capabilities of Epos and are committed to offering comprehensive support for the data management software through PARS."

"Our collaboration with Interica demonstrates our commitment to providing open solutions to our global oil and gas customers," said Duane Dopkin, executive vice-president of products at Paradigm. "We welcome the opportunity to enhance our customers' experience with PARS by improving the archiving, querying, quality control, and management of business-critical geoscience data created by our applications."
