SCADA Client Story

“Who would you call to help choose the best? Someone better, of course.” (The Smartest Guys in the Room) (Keystone Pipeline)

“Who would you call to help choose the best? Someone better, of course.”

When TransCanada, the company leading the execution of the $5.2 billion Keystone Pipeline project, needed a vendor to install a Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system- Who did they call? GlobaLogix, of course.

The system was installed to provide secure, remote views of their vast pipeline system, and to review data through a variety of telecommunications links- including satellite, data radio, frame delay, dial-up, and leased line. The cost was not the deciding factor in the selection of this vendor. TransCanada wanted the best technology available. GlobaLogix was commissioned to lead this review because of our non-alliance with any one technology or brand.

We were able to provide an unbiased, professional decision, just based on the technology that would be the most effective to accomplish the desired results. We developed a series of vendor selection reduction stages that cut the available vendors from 12 to 3. From there, we were able to interview and direct the vendors to provide presentations to TransCanada that focused on their technological abilities. The client selected a winning vendor after some very vigorous and detailed contract negotiations. But the story did not end there. GlobaLogix was assigned the role of Project Manager and technical director, to assist the winning vendor with programming and design of the program.

Think about how often a leader, when asked for plan details, replies with some description of a favorable outcome without ever describing how that might come about. If you can’t remember one, just google about any political press conference.[…..]

Phobias, Fears and Unicorns

If you want to vilify someone just tack on a phobia label. These days fear of anything makes us the villain, the bad actor, the malevolent one. Leaders, whether elected, chosen or self appointed, demonize fear as a tonic to assuage the masses of every threat. It’s meant to dull us down to a state of[…..]

Different Is Better

If you’re looking for better start first with different. In culture of professed accomplishment, we’re bombarded daily with messages of superiority that lack identifying substance. Companies proclaim they are better. They provide superior customer service. Their product is highest quality. Words, hollow words.

Hyping Millennials

I’m about to scream if I read or hear another nonsensical diatribe of meaningless kerfuffle about how Millennials are generationally unique in human history. According to the ‘experts’ and pundits this group of young people see life from an entirely different historical perspective. Let’s see, they are smarter, more computer savvy, more collaborative and intrinsically[…..]
