WHY ATTEND: In 2011, according to Fortune magazine, oil refining generated north of $5 trillion in sales, or 17% of Global 500 revenues. Oil & Gas is the largest sector, in terms of revenue, in the 2012 Global 500 list - 8 of the top 10 companies on this list are in the energy business. Oil & Gas vertical has been using Big Data as a way of doing business long before Big Data became a media buzz. Before they drill a single hole, Oil & Gas companies pile through multiple, large, and disparate datasets - seismic, weather, financial, electromechanical, geopolitical, environmental, etc. - to increase their odds of getting oil out of the ground profitably and safely. This panel of industry veterans and analytics experts will provide several examples of how the Oil & Gas industry uses Big Data today. The panel will also discuss how new inventions in Big Data Analytics technologies - especially, Prescriptive Analytics - hold the promise to transform several fundamental processes in the Oil & Gas industry.
