Energy companies have an opportunity to utilize their data better to reduce costs and improve productivity by adopting a “manufacturing” approach to managing its data.

Join us on June 1 for Harness the power of your data and put it to work to learn why today’s energy companies should consider using some of these proven capabilities to enable better decision making. You will learn how Baker Hughes and other industry leaders are doing this to improve their data to inspire innovation and boost competitiveness.

Case study: Manufacturers oversee a massive supply chain and operations of complex assets using repeatable, scalable processes to ensure they produce at their specified quality and consistency for a competitive cost. They achieve these results by having information technologies that support those objectives. 

On the other hand, energy companies often do things in a series of custom engineering and design projects that might be slightly different each time. By adopting certain data management practices from the manufacturing sector where it makes sense, companies in oil and gas can save a lot of time and money and get better results. 

Topics include:

  • Today’s reality – what data adds value and what doesn’t
  • Data vs. information and the importance of recognizing the difference
  • Lessons learned from adjacent industries
  • Possible obstacles or roadblocks

Date: Wednesday, June 1

Time: 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. MST
