Why Advanced Data Management and Analytics – Oil & Gas DigiConference

Intelligent technology adoption and advancement of data storage capabilities have greatly increased the volume and complexity of data collected by oil and gas companies. As 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 for both upstream and downstream sectors as it provides more visibility, critical insight, and real-time information on a company’s multiple assets and complex operations. 

However, challenges including data silos, inaccuracy and complexity, hinder oil and gas companies from tapping into the full potential of advanced data analytics and solutions.

In light of this, Advanced Data Management and Analytics – O&G DigiConference is hosted to shed light on some of the main challenges faced in data management and analytics and explore how advanced technology can help the industry in improving its efficiency and productivity through enabling faster and better informed decisions, preventing equipment failure, extending asset and plant lifecycle, and optimising production.

This virtual platform will gather high level representations from oil and gas operators, thought leaders and technology experts from across the region to share knowledge and experience in managing and analysing data. The event will also present various innovations in data management and advanced analytics as well as communication platforms and intelligent technologies that can help oil and gas companies take optimal steps in enhancing performance effectively across the entire organisation.
