"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.

The biggest challenge facing Information Management Director Steve Fortune was that three areas within BP were pursuing separate solutions for distinct but related problems: safeguarding people and providing humanitarian aid, predicting hurricane risk to physical assets; and assessing damage after the fact to facilitate repairs.
"It wasn't inevitable that they'd pool their resources for a joint solution," says Fortune."They were looking at Google maps, ARC GIS software, and manual solutions.We understood that a single solution would benefit the company by eliminating the redundant development and maintenance effort, and by providing a greater, larger, more accurate store of information than any one solution would have."
To convince the three areas to sign on for a common intelligence solution, Fortune demonstrated to them how that solution, based on Microsoft technologies easily integrated into the existing infrastructure, would give them more and better information, and greater ability to use the information for decision making, than they could get with isolated solutions.
