Most organizations are doing some form of Integrity Management today, but many don’t know exactly where to augment their existing efforts to effectively protect pipelines, enhance safety and achieve compliance. irth Solutions offers two types of data needs assessments, one focused on regulatory data and the other on GIS data.
Regulatory Data Needs Assessment
The Regulatory Data Needs Assessment (rDNA) helps operators identify the regulatory data needs, roles, functions and maintenance required for a highly effective Integrity Management program. Key Components of rDNA include data evaluation, data spatial and attribute quality assessment, data categorization, data prioritization, and data modeling. The rDNA can be tailored to fit your organization’s unique integrity management needs.
GIS Data Needs Assessment
This assessment is a systematic look at GIS, the spatial data needed to enhance existing work processes, and the capabilities of existing systems to perform future processing needs using GIS. During the GIS Data Needs Assessment (gDNA), the day-to-day needs of various departments are documented and opportunities to increase the availability of GIS information are identified. Additionally, this assessment includes a review of IT structure and security needs to ensure that an enterprise-wide GIS will work effectively with other software and hardware tools. The gDNA can be tailored to fit your organization’s unique GIS needs.
