In business since 1959, IHS is a leading source of information and expert analysis in pivotal areas, providing critical insight and shaping today’s global businesses. IHS provides comprehensive content, software and decision support with key capabilities and solutions focused on business information in the areas of: Energy & Power; Design & Supply Chain; Country & Industry Forecasts; Defense Risk & Security; Commodities Pricing & Cost; and, Environmental Health & Safety and Sustainability. Our long-standing focus on Canadian Energy information has led to the development of the most complete and trusted databases in the energy industry, and the development of software, information delivery and data management services to support them.

Companies in the oil & gas industry are looking to spend more time focused on their core competencies of exploring for oil & gas, and are relying more on others for data management. IHS takes raw data and applies stringent data governance techniques in order to create critical information that customers rely on to make high impact decisions and develop business strategies with speed and confidence. This critical information is consolidated and distributed through mechanisms like the IHS Information HubTM, and utilized across the industry via IHS fit-for-purpose software tools, third party and customers’ proprietary applications. IHS also provides customized solutions and services around the management, integration and delivery of data, including the integration and management of customers’ proprietary information.
