Problem statement / Business Challenge

Major challenge was to design a web based solution from scratch for an audiance who are used to large excel sheets and there is inherent resistance in accepting any new system. The need was to design a generic well data, document and process management platform. The solution had to be designed such that , it is easily customized to suit the needs of any Oil Field company. Objective was to design the system for easy adoption without disturbing any of the curent ways of managing the data. There was a lot of disconnect on how the workflows should be operating during the process; challenge was to arrive at right user storeys, workflows, task flows, interaction models, user interface models, authentication and authorization control models.

All of above needed complex discussions with all the stake holders - be it Engineers in off-shore or on-shore or compliance agencies and data control Engineers working in diferent geographies and speaking different languages. Arriving at right requirements, maintaining very simple workflows, creating customizable clean user interface, ensuring highly efficient data upload / download feautures was the most challenging job in this assignment other than managing secure deployment.
