The international market is full of high-quality solutions for reservoir modeling provided by specialized service and consultancy companies. Nevertheless, oil and gas operators independently develop their own home-made software solutions, although, at first glance, it is much easier for them to buy ready-made package solutions. What is the purpose of spending time and money on this activity? What do companies need today to successfully create and commercialize software products? An example of the development of a software package based on own solution in the Skolkovo start-up system is given.
