Developing and executing business plans and strategies is some of the most complex, time-consuming work that any company can undertake. They are critical to understanding your competitive position in the marketplace and allowing companies to make timely decisions to time sensitive opportunities. Strategic business planning requires significant amounts of time and resources across your company from C-suite leaders to technical and operational experts and business and economic analysts. When it comes to deriving knowledge from data you can apply the old saying, “you only get out, what you put in.”

Strategic direction and business decisions impacting operations and mergers, acquisitions and divestitures all rely on people’s professional expertise and evaluation but that cannot happen effectively without timely, accurate and relevant data.

GLJ IntelliCasts™ gives you access to reliable, up-to-date data, in real time. GLJ IntelliCasts™ is a subscription product that offers rapid insight into oil and gas asset valuation. Powered by a mix of machine learning, modern decline analytics and five decades of play knowledge this is indispensable well-level insight for producers, debt & equity stakeholders, and mid-streamers alike. With ongoing industry consolidation, GLJ IntelliCasts™ gives subscribers an edge in benchmarking, assessing opportunities.

“Decision-making in the energy sector is complex and is, without question, data driven. The energy business is incredibly competitive which means that organizations need to be strategic, adaptable, and agile in their data evaluations or they become vulnerable to their competitors.” said GLJ Director of Business Development, Lorinda King. “GLJ IntelliCasts enables companies to be responsive, decrease costs and make faster decisions. IntelliCasts enables users to answer business questions faster by utilizing dashboards that show competitive information and industry insights. This cost-saving nimbleness allows for better production assessment, development planning, and stakeholder communication.”

The drive to access good data, evaluate it and apply it to the business decision-making processes consumes enormous amounts of human and financial resources. This challenge is amplified in the current environment of significant A&D activity across all sectors of the industry. “The energy sector is in a state of transition, and this adds to the complexity of any commercial deals that we consider” said an executive with one of GLJ’s original IntelliCasts™ subscriber clients. “Our A&D teams process huge volumes of information that ultimately lead us to a decision point of whether to commit substantial amounts of capital towards projects or not. It is tedious, time consuming and detailed work but it is essential to our business. IntelliCasts™ gives us access to highly detailed, accurate information and analysis that takes away a huge amount of the work that our staff would normally have had to analyze in person.”
