Delivering value in the new business reality.
There is a big challenge in the oil and gas industry today (somewhat similar to '73, '78, '98 and '08). It becomes extremely important for companies to manage their business critical information and data efficiently, effectively and provide it into the decision making. At the
same time new data types (like fiber optic sensing), new technologies (like Cloud) and re-vitalized focus on analytics, abandonment and emergency response needs to be dealt with.
The ECIM 2016 conference provides a golden opportunity to get the best learnings and practices from the industry and knowledge share peer to peer. This annual Conference and User Meeting is the most important event of its kind in Europe. All attendees and presenters should benefit from this conference and take their new knowledge back into the industry. (Photo: Lars Gåseby)
