Tulsa tech company teams up with Microsoft

University of Tulsa research partner eLynx Technologies was featured at Microsoft’s annual Worldwide Partner Conference July 10-14 in Toronto, Canada. The event brings together more than 15,000 attendees from around the world to network, increase partner profitability and accelerate business growth.

Microsoft’s Judson Althoff, Executive Vice President, Worldwide Commercial Business, discussed how oil and gas producers will benefit from eLynx SCADALynx software. The supervisory control and data acquisition technology allows eLynx customers to monitor production equipment, such as gauges, meters, pumps and tanks, in real time. The software leverages global delivery of Microsoft’s Azure loT software, a program involving continual pattern analysis to improve well production or prevent equipment failure.

“We will use the Microsoft technology to research and develop models used to predict outcomes that allow our clients to make more informed decisions,” said eLynx President and CEO Stephen Jackson, a member of the TU Board of Trustees.

eLynx clients who combine the use of SCADALynx software with Microsoft’s Azure technology will have the ability to turn raw data into actionable information. They can effectively track their business while applying predictive analytics to increase production. The eLynx/Microsoft partnership enables operators to capture massive amounts of data from each type of field equipment.
