Unlocking the power of data

Data is a key enabler of digital transformation. Yet, managing and extracting value from data continues to be a challenge for oil and gas companies. CGI is member of The Open Group OSDU™ Forum, a cross-industry collaboration comprising over 200 organizations that has built an open exploration and production data platform to accelerate innovation and transformation in the industry. CGI Pivot is an instant and cost-effective SaaS-based implementation of the OSDU Data Platform that helps you unlock the value of data in minutes and make fast, insight-led business decisions.
