Cognite Seismic Service [Limited Availability]

Hello we have very good news for you, Seismic Service reached Limited Availability. What does it mean for you? A more mature and resilient Software as a Service offering supported by Cognite, and only one step away from being general available. In this particular case the main difference between Limited and General availability relies on the specific cloud support vs a cloud agnostic offer. Why was the Seismic service built? Because seismic data is a key asset for many companies in the Oil and Gas industry, and it represents a big portion of the data a company might own. The reason for this is that seismic data by nature is very large and complex to store and access quickly. In Cognite, we built the Seismic Service that allows you to store data in the cloud, search for a particular seismic line and stream it in seconds. All these functionalities are powered by CDF. Seismic Service enables you to:  Have centralized access for 2D and 3D post stack seismic data Full control on who access the data through entitlement management Cut and download on demand Smart resource usage during data ingestion The Seismic Service provides full flexibility to build your own workflows to manage your seismic data on top of CDF, by exposing it through a Python SDK and a GRPC API. Feel free to let us know if you think this service might be a good fit in your business or if you have any questions related to it. On behalf of the entire Seismic team, we hope the service is beneficial to all of you.  Elka Sierra - Group Product Manager for Subsurface (Oil & Gas vertical)

Cognite Data Fusion Release: October 2022

Images contain essential information required for optimizing operations. This release of Cognite Data Fusion (CDF) introduces image and video management, where you can upload, organize, and explore the image and video data and add annotations to the images. With the new image contextualization API, you can detect assets tags, text and people using industry-relevant detection models.We've also made it easier to work with the data flow from a source system into CDF with the option to create, edit, and troubleshoot the extractors' configuration files in the CDF user interface.Read more below or watch the videos to learn more about this and other improvements in this release. Image and video management​Images contain information such as the time or location of a photo, a number on a tag, or rust on a pipe. Use the new Image and video management tool to upload and enrich images and videos to CDF. Then, organize and explore your images and videos in a list view, gallery view, or on a map and add or review annotations to the images. Read moreUsing the Vision API and the Python and JavaScript SDKs, you can find data based on visual content and link images to assets by analyzing the images with detection models, such as asset tag detection, text detection, and person detection. The person detection model protects privacy and complies with GDPR. Create and edit extractor configuration files in the CDF user interface​The Cognite extractors connect to source systems and push data to CDF. When you set up or want to change the extractors, you can now create and edit the configuration files to fit your requirements on the Extraction pipeline page. This will reduce the time and effort spent accessing the configuration file on the extractor's host machine and make it easier to iterate and deploy the configurations settings and investigate extractor run issues. Read moreWhen you're ready to apply the configuration to a production environment, we recommend setting up remote configuration files stored in the cloud using versioned files and continuous integration systems, such as GitHub Actions, or directly with the CDF API. Read more Point cloud visualization in 3D models​With improved point cloud visualization in the 3D digital twin models, you'll find the rendering of objects clearer, more uniformed and with higher fidelity. This will make it easier to distinguish which object is in front and which is in the back when looking at digital twins. Place measurements in 3D models​Use the Cognite Reveal SDK to measure simple point to point distances in 3D models by clicking to- and from-points. For example to fit a new piece of equipment in a designated location. The default measurement unit is meters, but the tool provides callbacks to allow configuring the unit.Historic time series​The CDF time series service now allows data points starting on 01.01.1900T00:00:00Z (1 January 1900), specified as milliseconds since the epoch. This means you can import a more complete time series history to CDF. Time should be specified as a negative integer value for data points prior to midnight on Jan 01, 1970, and as positive integer values for data points after.

Release 1.22 of Cognite Maintain

​Hello from the Maintain team!We’ve been focusing heavily on the future of scheduling. We’re happy to release significant changes to this feature as well as updates to the workspaces functionality and a standard slew of bug fixes.Scheduling upgradesWe’re introducing several new upgrades to our scheduling component, and laying the foundation for upgrades to come!You can now create operations. These operations are tied to Maintain and are used for ‘noting down’ new operations that are required. Once you have finalized your changes, you can export these and add them to your source system (e.g., SAP). You can adjust the granularity to see your schedule in a day, week, month, or year view - making it easier to view longer-lasting plans. You can drag and drop operations to reorder them to make the most sense to your plan. Drag and drop bars are now more user friendly and easier to do. The trade matrix will now use the number of workers as a baseline instead of the number of work hours each day. This will be the foundation for the teams concept coming up the next half year. We’ve given the page a new design refresh to make the experience cleaner and easier to use. Finally, we have added a selection of filters for you to use specific to the scheduling page. For example, filtering by the type of operation phase (Pre, Post or Exec).Workspace upgradesWe’ve given the stamp tool a redesign. We also have added a base set of P&ID symbols that you can use as stamps. You can upload images to CDF and use as stamps. If a document physically covers another document on the page, you can now move it between layers. You can now swap between pages of a PDF.Integrity and Major Risks DashboardWe have made multiple changes to improve the performance of the IMR-dashboard.Other updatesWe have improved the filtering options selection to be more performant and included the number of options this filter has.Bug fixesFixed issue with rendering suggestions. Comments tool in workspaces now works again. Fixed issue where the material status did not show on work orders. This release also contains bug fixes to improve performance and user experience.Behind the scenesWe’re looking forward to booking meetings with super users from our customers to start validating our roadmap plans for the upcoming months! Several users have raised some exciting ideas that we are developing a concept around. We hope that these will further increase the value of Maintain going forward. Head on over to the Maintain Group on Cognite Hub to learn more about specific features, what’s to come, and post a question if you have one!

Cognite BestDay 2.0

 We're very excited to present BestDay's all-new deviation and deferment handling workflow.Detect production deviations for your overall production throughput - your total hydrocarbon production - on a daily basis, analyze and investigate the data using multiple new panels on the KPI page, then classify and group deviations as you see best fit to transition into BestDay deferments. When you have handled the deviations, you can export and ingest the BestDay deferments back into your source system.  The BestDay capacity and production deviation calculations are now based on total hydrocarbon production. This means that the BestDay capacity and deviation volumes include the well main hydrocarbon product (such as oil for an oil well) and the hydrocarbon side-products (such as associated gas for an oil well) in one single Best Day capacity daily number per well. The BestDay daily identified production deviations volumes exclude deferment volumes recorded in the source system on the day of the BestDay capacity calculation. This means the source deferment events do not need to be attached to BestDay deviations as these are two separate volumes. You can verify the production and deferment volumes available in the system at the time of the BestDay capacity calculation in the detailed description of the BestDay daily production deviations. This means that if a deferment event and volume have been added in the source system after the BestDay calculation, you can check the values at the time of the calculation. Learn more about all the details in the comprehensive release notes.

Cognite Data Fusion Release: February 2022

The Product Release Spotlight Webinar recording for February can be found here. Cognite Data Fusion (CDF) streams data into the CDF data model, where the data is normalized and enriched by adding connections between data resources of different types to provide better business decisions. With this release, you can ingest geospatial data into CDF to contextualize and map with other CDF resource types to deliver accurate spatial analysis and statistics.Read more on this and all the other improvements for the CDF February 2022 release below. Geospatial dataWork with geospatial data using the Geospatial API and Python & JavaScript SDKs to handle the positioning and geometry of CDF data. We currently support a multitude of coordinate reference systems (CRS), but you can add other entries from the European Petroleum Survey Group (EPSG) as a custom CRS. You can also transform an input CRS to the defined CRS to improve the search in geometrics.  Read more. Ingest PI Asset Framework data to CDFThe new Cognite PI Asset Framework (AF) extractor is considered an extension to the Cognite PI extractor. The Cognite PI AF extractor retrieves a dump of the asset hierarchy from the Asset Framework on the PI Server and ingests this into Cognite RAW. Subsequently, the extractor regularly checks for updates in the PI asset framework and ingests any changes into CDF. Delete asset hierarchies using CDF TransformationsYou can now delete asset hierarchies in CDF using CDF Transformations. Items are deleted by their internal ID, and non-existing IDs are ignored. Read more about CDF Transformations here. Ingest data into CDF Relationships using PostgreSQL gatewayWe're rolling out the option to use the PostgreSQL gateway and Azure Data Factory (ADF) to ingest data directly into CDF Relationships. Select the public.relationships table in your ADF sink. Learn how here. Ingest time series data points directly into CDF Data points using the Cognite DB extractorThe Cognite DB extractor, version 2.4.1, provides a new option to ingest data points directly into CDF Data points instead of Cognite RAW. Set destination type as TIME_SERIES in your configuration file. Early adopter programsCognite offers several Early adopter programs to our users. We encourage you to take this opportunity to learn about and test our features currently in the making. Navigate to Cognite Hub , open the Group tab, and select Request to join to become an Early adopter candidate.

Cognite Data Fusion Release: December 2021

The Product Release Spotlight Webinar recording for December can be found here.  ​Trusting the data in Cognite Data Fusion (CDF) is the core of managing, building, and using the Cognite product suite. Data engineers need sufficient insight into the staged data to take the next step on the ingestion journey and the new data profiling report on staged data in Cognite RAW caters for this. This CDF release also introduces the new Cognite Solutions Portal. The Cognite Solutions Portal collects applications, use cases, and other helpful links to solutions your organization has built on top of CDF. Users no longer have to keep track of many different URLs to access the information they need in their daily work.Read more on this and all the other improvements for the CDF December release below: Data profiling on staged dataTo get in-depth knowledge about the data quality, discover patterns, outliers, and see other statistics in the new standard profiling report available on the Profile tab in Cognite RAW. Report your findings to the data owners and use this as a trigger to discuss topics such as the best fit for the primary key column and contextualization and to provide the best support for the end-users of the data. Keep iterating on the data integrations to improve the data quality and prepare the data transformation into the CDF data model. Read more here. ​Get notified about interrupted data flow into CDFCatch any issues that interrupt the data flow into CDF by setting up email notifications on the Extraction pipeline page. You can define the time condition for triggering the email. Learn how to set it up in this article.  New tools for running SQL TransformationsNew Transformations CLIThe new Transformations CLI replaces the old Jetfire CLI offering a better developer experience. Now, you can easily declare and manage variables in the configuration file without any hard-code. You install the CLI using the Python pip package manager. Read more here. APIs and Python SDK for TransformationsThe Transformations APIs and Python SDK are promoted to Version 1. Using the APIs/SDK, data engineers can orchestrate transformations sequentially, making it more reliable and quick. Check out the  API docs and SDK docs for more information.  Access management for SQL TransformationsYou can now manage access to SQL Transformations using the new transformations:read and transformations:write capabilities in your CDF group. We still support transformation access using the transformationsor jetfire groups for existing users to ensure backward compatibility. However, we recommend that you switch to managing access to Transformations using the new capabilities. Introducing the Cognite Solutions PortalAs companies ramp up their digitalization and transformation efforts, the number of applications, dashboards, and use cases increases rapidly. As a result, end-users have to keep track of many different URLs to access the information they need. This is the problem Cognite Solutions Portal sets out to solve. It gathers all your CDF-enabled solutions in one place. Use the Cognite Solutions Portal to add applications, dashboards from analytics and visualization tools, and helpful links into shared spaces.  Explore data in 3DThe CDF Data explorer already helps solution builders and data scientists find, validate, and learn about the data in CDF. Get the full experience by navigating and searching for assets and viewing the details in 3D models on the new 3D tab in the CDF Data explorer.    ChartsCognite Charts runs on top of  CDF and is a powerful tool for engineers and domain experts to explore, trend, and analyze industrial data. For more information, visit the Charts [Early Adopter] Group. This release has the following improvements: Automatic data alignmentCharts now automatically handle data alignment in your calculations. Time series data often have different sampling frequencies and time stamps, and it can be hard to do even the simplest calculations (e.g. timeseries_1 + timeseries_2), especially if you’re not proficient in Python.  Calculation results will be inaccurate and untrustworthy without properly accounting for data alignment.    A new and improved no-code calculation builder experienceThe no-code calculation builder has been redesigned and rebuilt on a new, powerful library.
