As he said, information technology can effectively promote energy conservation and petrochemical companies. With many years’ experience and knowledge in this industry, SAP can provide technical solutions targeted for oil and gas companies and bring best practices into the China market. And Tom Lu, Director of Big Data Architect delivered a presentation about Big Data applications and Business Intelligence, mainly talked about how to dig important information among massive data and make the right decisions accordingly.

The conference has shortened the distance between customers in the Oil & Gas industry and us, while SAP effectively conveys the best practices in such two sectors, which lays the groundwork for sales. Moreover, attendance in such industry conference is very meaningful, given it not only enables our experts to update knowledge in this field, but also brings more sales opportunities and builds deeper customer relationships.
