The Oil Industry Meets Silicon Valley
Don’t think like a traditional oil company: Own the stack
Sferion is developing a single app to manage all aspects of running the company. We refer to this as “The Sferion”. Traditionally oil companies glued together off the shelf apps to build an infrastructure to manage their company. This seems cost effective until customizations are inevitably required and companies are left struggling to make even trivial changes to business logic. By controlling the entire technology stack Sferion will be the first Oil & Gas producer to limitlessly automate itself.
Iterative development: Don’t try and make it perfect the first time
Building software perfectly the first time is incredibly expensive and slow.
Iteratively testing new features in a rapid release cycle is much more effective. By “owning the stack” Sferion can upgrade its systems in a consistent & timely fashion. This means new ideas can be tested at a much lower cost. As the source code of “The Sferion” is owned and maintained by Sferion any necessary changes can be made to any part of the system.
