Opening General Session

Translating Big Data into Business Results
Monday, 24 September | 1000–1200

Everyone is asking about modernizing and transforming our industry using big data, but the real question is how to use it to improve safety and increase profitability. Can we take a systems approach to create a true step-change in the safety, quality, and efficiency of our operations? To do so, we need to combine hardware, software, data and domain expertise seamlessly, and collaboratively across geoscience, engineering, drilling, completions, and operations. 

The long-anticipated Big Crew Change has mostly happened in the last few years. Our current workforce is younger and more digitally capable, but are we using their skills to our advantage? How do we prepare them for a more data-intensive workplace?

Join the Opening General Session on Monday, 24 September for an in-depth review of big data with key industry leaders.
