Before joining Microsoft, he was the Vice President of Business Development for Knowledge Reservoir, a supplier of geological and petroleum engineering technical consulting services. Mike's career also includes twenty years with the Royal Dutch/Shell Group, where he worked in a variety of leadership positions. In his last five years at Shell, he worked for Shell Services International, the services and information technology arm of Shell, where he was Vice President for New Ventures in the Americas.

Mike earned an MBA from New York University. He is also a Certified Public Accountant, having worked for Ernst and Young early in his career.

Full Description

 

The scope of the Digital Oil Field ( DOF) has advanced as game changing technologies have progressed. Underlying these advances are the new capabilities that advanced software enables.  

Mike will discuss the roadmap for DOF 2.0, and the new capabilities that will be enabled including:

·        Enhanced knowledge worker productivity (including the need to automate business processes to drive twice the workload with half the staff, a 4x step change)

·        Better data management solutions that require substantially less time to find and frame the information required to support high quality decision making

·        Better collaboration platforms that allow you to quickly search and find the hidden experts in your organization or knowledge network, and allow for a SECURE yet robust exchange of ideas and information on multiple communication channels (Corp Lap top, Mobile device, Home PC, Cloud based systems) and document these exchanges for publishing to your corporate social network for best practice sharing

·        Ease of use in sharing technical applications including virtualization

·        Better Business Intelligence and analytical tools that will automate the interrogation of the vast quantities of data being generated today with business rules that the end users can easily define, to filter and diagnose that data in to information that is actionable to optimization opportunities
