BlueCardinal

BlueCardinal is our streaming data analytics engine. It’s the first step in the solution offered by SigmaStream in extracting insights from the vast amounts of data that is generated by the IoT devices.  Primarily, it converts the streaming data collected from numerous sensors, systems and instruments at the rig into insights. These insights are then subjected to patented proprietary algorithms to transform them into operational events.

The proprietary algorithms are based on best practices prevalent in the oil & gas industry and have been validated and benchmarked from use cases and data in real life. Operational events are generated in real-time and processed further to derive intricate information in terms of complex operational events. Operational events and complex operational events are consumed by downstream applications like HummingBird to generate KPIs for visual presentation.

BlueCardinal is a lightweight product built to achieve parallel execution and enable data-intensive applications to operate in near real-time. This also results in giving BlueCardinal its characteristics features like a speedy start, auto scalability, elasticity and failure handling. Use of windowing techniques gives BlueCardinal the ability to compute aggregate functions over a large number of data streams.

Using adaptors, BlueCardinal can access any data from source or sink. BlueCardinal works in a no-persistence mode where all the processed data is handed over to the sink. YellowHammer and HummingBird are the preferred source and sink respectively when deploying in the oil & gas vertical. 

BlueCardinal ensures end-to-end low latency while handling back pressure. It can handle frequency range 0.2 Hz – 1000 Hz while ingesting as well as streaming and can be deployed at the edge or inside the corporate network.

Auto-detect Drilling Operations

BlueCardinal detects drilling operations automatically from commonly available data channels at the rig, using patented algorithms. These are further processed into complex operational events.

Plug & Play

BlueCardinal makes use of adaptors to interface with source and sink. In-built adaptors enable BlueCardinal to fit into any ecosystem, with minimal configuration to generate metrics.

Streaming Analytics

Using a series of windowing and watermarking techniques high frequency data is ferried through pipelines authored specifically to mine for insights pertaining to drilling problems.

SigmaStream Ecosystem

Tight integration with the SigmaStream's aggregator YellowHammer and engineering visualizer HummingBird, results in a seamless solution.

Extensible Platform

The architecture allows for the development of operators that can be used stand-alone or as a group to address a specific use-case
