# Apps for Petro.ai
Apps built on Petro.ai use a common data model to give users a homogeneous data set to built workflows off of. Those built in-house by us are considered extensions of the platform. Apps can come in several forms:
- Web Apps are applications built on top of the Petro.ai platform. These are typically enabled at the Petron-level.
- BI Connectors enable users to bring analysis from their Petron into a BI tool like TIBCO Spotfire. This integration keeps all the context of your petron and creates a live link between Petro.ai and a BI tool.
- Python we've deployed an open source Python library for the Petro.ai system platform. Get involved with the community and stay connected!
