Started from the Bottom, Now We’re Here: 10 Years of Innovation with CGG

Started from the Bottom, Now We’re Here: 10 Years of Innovation with CGG

Noticing that 2015 is already half-over, it got me thinking about just how fast time flies. Case in point: almost ten years ago, I was working at Objectivity as a systems engineer for Fugro-Jason, now part of CGG, a geoscience company based in Paris, France, and one of the many long-standing solutions partners with Objectivity.

Today I’m delighted that I’m still at Objectivity, enabling CGG GeoSoftware to remain on the cutting edge of big data technology. Over these ten years the requirements of the application and demands on the database have increased significantly. The number and accuracy of the sensor-generated samples and readings has increased six orders of magnitude, and the amount of data stored and processed has increased correspondingly three orders of magnitude.
