How DDD became essential in the (highly competitive) energy sector

17th September 2013 in New York City at DUMBO Loft

This SkillsCast was filmed at DDD eXchange NYC

SkillsCast coming soon.

Domain models and their APIs, which provide firm foundations for innovative customizations, have emerged as major product differentiators in the billion dollar shrink-wrap software market of the oil and gas industry. Robert will explain why.

Exploring for oil is an expensive business, getting it out of the ground even more so. Discovering, describing and simulating oil reservoirs is a competitive software-intensive activity. The dominant players must provide unique advantages within the constraints of off-the-shelf software systems.

In this talk, Robert will illustrate the benefits and challenges – both technical and cultural – encountered by one company in applying DDD to “shared earth models” which were hitherto implicitly encoded in legacy systems. I’ll also discuss the all-important business imperatives that have motivated the adoption of domain modelling in the oil and gas software industry.
