When it comes to data-intensive industries, the Oil and Gas industry collects a vast amount of information that regularly updates in real-time. One approach to maintaining all this information is to create powerful Progressive Web Apps. This is because PWA’s allow workers to monitor and manage large amounts of critical data in real-time. For this reason, building successful PWAs for Oil and Gas supports the industry by increasing its efficiency, safety, cost-effectiveness, and competitiveness.
What are Progressive Web Apps (PWA’s)?
The progressive web app is based on key concepts that enable the web to be more user-friendly, performant, and interactive. The web has evolved into a series of powerful standards that provide almost limitless possibilities for your web applications. Progressive web apps will do anything from connecting with native application functionality like the camera on your phone to being easily installed on your desktop and handheld computers. Progressive web apps are also a powerful tool for application modernization.
Why should you create Progressive Web Apps?
Data reveals that building PWAs improves the success of businesses: Twitter is a social media site
- 65% increase in pages per session.
- 75% increase in tweets sent.
- 20% decrease in bounce rate.
- Uses less than 3% of mobile capacity relative to native Twitter for Android.
While Nikkei has been publishing for over 140 years and is one of Japan’s most prominent media companies:
- A 2x increase in speed index
- 14-second reduction in time-to-interactive
- 75% faster loading with prefetch
- 49% increase in daily active users

Why Migrate when you can modernize to PWA’s?
PWAs can be used for your business practices:
- Creating a web-based ticketing system for support agents, allowing work to be completed on a desktop or mobile environment.
- Using Web NFC to communicate with IoT devices and retrieve information about manufacturing equipment performance.
- Developing a Content Management System (CMS) to deliver student content that can be accessed offline, allowing students with limited internet access to participate.
- Web Payment API and Paypal integrations for e-commerce
- Mobile accident assessment apps that allow you to take photos and videos of an accident, record audio testimonies, and more.
This white paper will teach you how to view these issues as opportunities rather than problems. We’ll look at why people migrate or modernize, as well as the risks and considerations they should bear in mind before embarking on a (migration or modernization) project.
Finally, we’ll talk about how modernizing IBM i applications with optimized business workflows, integration with other technologies and new mobile and web user interfaces will enable IT – and your business – to experience time-added value and much more
