Five Reasons O&G Companies Should Attend “Best Practices for Oil and Gas” 2016

BPOG 2016.jpg

The new digital economy is upon us and companies failing to reimagine their businesses could lose whatever competitive advantage they hold in the market. Fortunately, the oil and gas industry has been highly automated and digitized for decades. Yet, the technology powering the digital economy is taking connectivity to a new level, transforming nearly every aspect of operations and customer engagement. Early adopters are growing shareholder and stakeholder value faster than their peers; while those failing to adapt are falling behind. Staying ahead of the curve means taking a hard look at existing practices and reimaging everything from business models and processes to work management solutions.

In less than 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.  Empathetic of current market conditions driven by lingering low commodity prices, the theme this year is, “Survive and Thrive in the Digital Energy Revolution”.  Here you can hear directly from your peers what technologies and best practices are being leveraged to reimagine everything to drive operational efficiency and reduce costs. Here are five more reasons and key session highlights that oil and gas companies should not miss in The Woodlands, Texas, on September 13th and 14th:

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 Area 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.
  4. Explore the full array of SAP solutions for oil and gas all in one place. Visit the Community Corners for demos, expert Q&A and discussions, and meet exhibitors covering technology, support, software solutions, services, hosting, and content providers.
  5. Network With Your Peers – Collaborate and network with the entire SAP ecosystem in one location.
