Houston Ventures & the Cloud – Jonathan Currie (CEO In Residence)

Posted on April 29th, 2015 by Chip Davis

So – what’s all the fuss about?

At HV, we believe the cloud revolution changes everything. For the first time, participants in the oil & gas industry, from the largest E&P companies through to the smallest contributor out in the field can share and exchange data, deploy collaborative business processes, capture field-level data at-source through mobile devices, and deliver time- and location-sensitive content to end users without boundaries.images

Of course, the cloud raises as many questions as it answers. How do I manage mobile devices? Which mobile OS should I embrace? Is my corporate data secure? Does the cloud give me a competitive advantage, and if so, how? Will my customers and suppliers come with me on this? What will my workforce think? Can I enforce technology deployment in the field? What’s the return on investment? Does this make my existing systems and technologies redundant? What does Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) really mean?

From an investment perspective, we’re excited about the cloud. We see opportunities for technology companies to impact their oil & gas customers like never before across the entire spectrum of the industry. We see scalability and reliability being offered hand-in-hand, overcoming a decades-old problem for information systems.

If your business embraces the cloud, give us a call, and let’s talk about your dreams and aspirations for capitalizing on the opportunities the cloud offers you, your customers, and your investment team.
