About Renee and Culminate Strategy
Renee Bourgeois, a data consultant with Culminate Strategy, works with one of the world's leading providers of products and services to the energy industry to assess their oil and gas well performance of around 500 wells in the Gulf of Mexico, critical information to successfully run their business. She is working with 59 million searchable files and billions of data entries.
Moving from raw data to meaningful visualizations can take hours, depending on the quality of the data. Renee had to manually create charts and graphs, spending valuable hours iterating through different formats to find the right one.
Renee used DataChat to automatically generate charts by selecting the KPIs that best describe how a well is performing. Using these charts, she was able to explore the KPIs within minutes. She was then able to publish those charts to an Insights Board that was shared with her manager and company leaders.
Her entire team was able to use the visualizations to understand the data. Renee used DataChat to automatically create interactive visualizations and publish them to an Insights Board for her manager, who doesn’t have a DataChat account. He was able to explore the data, zoom in on particularly interesting areas, and ask meaningful questions. His ability to interact with the data and see the steps taken in her analyses shifted the focus from asking about the nuts and bolts of the analysis to discussing what business decisions they should make. These visualizations were ultimately presented to the executive team to help them understand the performance of their wells and decide where they needed to make adjustments.
