There is little debate the Oil and Gas industry has been challenged over the last couple of years.  Now that we are in the “new normal”, there is an urgency for the Digital Energy Revolution to provide the agility and scale needed to win in this environment.  It is more important than ever for the industry to come together to hear solutions and expertise on how to innovate – not only for survival, but for growth – as they maintain process efficiencies realized in the downturn.

In about a month the doors will open again for the premier oil and gas industry event, Best Practices for Oil and Gas, hosted by Eventful Conferences and ASUG.  The theme this year is “The Digital Turning Point”, reflecting how many in the industry realize that the time has come to take action to become a digital energy company, or get left behind.  At the Best Practices for Oil and Gas event you can hear directly from your peers what technologies and best practices are being leveraged to transform business models, processes, and ways of working.  You will also leave with practical next steps to safely navigate this journey. Here are five more reasons and key session highlights that oil and gas companies should not miss in The Woodlands, Texas, on October 16th through the 18th:

Five Reasons to Attend:

  1. Learn about SAP’s Vision to inspire and shape a digital world that helps oil and gas companies leverage the efficiencies and growth promised by the digital economy.  It begins by looking for ways to digitize content and then capturing, analyzing and delivering the resulting data in easy-to-consume formats so that real action can be taken.  These same disruptive technologies can also be used to reach new levels of safety, cost control, and agility in a lower oil price environment, while providing a bridge to success in the new, diversified and outcome-focused energy economy.

  2. Hear from best run oil and gas companies on how they are adopting new technologies to redesign and digitize their business processes to become more competitive and increase profitability. Understand how these SAP innovations helped simplify their business and contribute to the bottom line.

  3. Digital Experience Theater to help visualize and develop your digital road map. Oil and gas companies must digitize to grow profits in new markets as well as reduce costs and increase productivity by simplifying their operations. The value of the digital economy is based on driving efficiencies by preventing disruptions and automating processes such as maintenance and work load schedules.  Come see live demos in the Digital Experience area of the exhibition hall of how you can get there.
