Pedigree Technologies Founder and CEO, Alex Warner was recently featured in Prairie Business Magazine.
Here’s an excerpt from the article:
“Alex Warner was a typical North Dakota kid. He grew up on a sizable farm and attended North Dakota State University, where he received a degree in agronomy. But then something happened. He ‘caught the tech bug,’ and shifted his focus from farming toward the emerging world of computers and technology. …
He had become very interested in a new application for technology — called machine-to-machine technology — and he had a hunch that the potential applications of it would be huge.”
Pedigree Technologies CEO Alex Warner was recently interviewed by Jason Spiess of Building the Bakken about the impact of technology in the oil and gas industry.

Here is an excerpt from the article.
Warner added that the oil and gas industry is “adopting technology pretty radically.” In fact, some of the technologies Pedigree uses originated in the oil and gas industry, typically referred to as SCADA (Supervisor Control and Data Acquisition systems).
“We’re kinda like a SCADA on steroids,” Warner said. “If we can use technologies to monitor, track, manage equipment and streamline logistics with cellular networks and data networks – everyone wants to make the whole oil and gas delivery process and service process very streamlined and so the educational market is already there.”
