The Digital Transformation is the integration of digital technology into all areas of a business, changing the way of operating and delivering value to customers.

Today, digital transformation presents massive potential for oil and gas companies as it provides businesses with real-time information and greater visibility into operations, particularly when it comes to the performance of people and assets.

In the digital transformation journey, data is considered a very valuable asset. Unlocking its potential through advanced management and analytics technologies is key to improve efficiency in decision making and productivity. This also provides more visibility, critical insight, and real-time information on assets and operations.

In the oil and gas business, companies are generating large volumes of data. This then is consumed by humans and machines in a connected world where the machines (things) are dominating the biggest part of the supply chain.

However, the digital transformation journey can be slowed down or even fail if the data management challenges are not tackled efficiently. Data in silos, unstructured data landscape, poor quality, and the absence of data governance are the major obstacle towards a successful transformation.

A good data strategy is key to deliver the right insights and actionable information at the right time. Besides of the right purpose the data consumer (human or machine) must receive such service in a secure manner.

This session will explore the need for emerging technologies to transform the oil and gas business and will also emphasize how state-of-the-art data management is a key enabler for a successful digital transformation.

Real-life examples of data management and digital transformation will be illustrated as well.
