"It was extremely helpful that we could create the solution using the SQL Server databases that we already had and understood at BP," says Stephen Fortune, Information Management Director, Gulf of Mexico Strategic Performance Unit, BP. "That was a benefit during development, and it will mean more cost-effective maintenance of the solution on a continuing basis."

BP chose the Web services-based Virtual Earth software to provide the geographic imagery for the solution.
"Virtual Earth is a very natural fit for us, one that integrates well with our existing Microsoft infrastructure, including our intranet portal," says Fortune.
"We've always faced the challenge of integrating data from multiple sources so people could do their jobs more efficiently," says Fortune.
"This data visualization solution is changing the way we do business," says Fortune.
Another exceptional aspect of the solution, according to Fortune, is speed. The use of Web services to integrate weather data feeds means the solution is always displaying realtime information. Moreover, BP crisis team members don't have to wait for the screen to catch up with their actions.
"One of the things that differentiates this application from a lot of what we've seen is the lack of screen recovery time," says Fortune.
"The full, intuitive picture you get from data visualization makes you more proactive in your work, and this isn't unique to crisis response," says Fortune.
