Data Analytics Initiative: Has the E&P Industry realized the value of digital transformation and leveraged Big Data analytics?

Big Data as a business paradigm has impacted and transformed many industry verticals. Upstream oil and gas industry has been slow in adopting value creation through Big Data, while it claims to have ‘lots of data’ in its silos. To decrease the cost of supply and leverage the voice of the oilfield is critical for E&P industry, if it wants to be part of the Industry 4.0 revolution. This requires that E&P industry becomes agile in Big Data technologies, adaptable to Big Data actionable insights, and advance to next generation. In this talk, Dr. Priyadarshy will discuss current state of E&P industry in adopting digital transformation.

Ice Breaker session from 5:30 to 5:45 pm (Dinner will be provided) . Starting 5:45 pm, the Data Analytics group will introduce itself and talk about its vision.  It will be followed by Dr. Priyadarshy's talk, Q&A and a networking session.
