Pulse of the sector: technology trends in Energy 2014

Oil and Gas ICT Leader is now set to become to an annual event after receiving a warm welcome in Aberdeen, the take away of the day coming from brightsolid customer, Angus Murray of Taqa Global who highlighted the fact that it’s people who are key, with technology being the enabler. Feedback on twitter included a summary from FarrPoint:

“Plumbing no longer core business, People, Process and Apps are; People & Change Management key, technology is just an enabler @TAQAGLOBAL #oilgasict”. More great feedback from #oilgasict came form Entrust People IT who commented “What a great morning at the conference, great presentations from @CraigGroupLtd @SericSystems and chats with @ScotlandIS”.

BrightSparks went on to tweet “@brightsolid great talk from Richard Higgs on game changers on the way in technology. We are excited to see what’s on its way! #oilgasict”
Our CEO, Richard Higgs delivered “Pulse of the Sector: technology trends 2014 from over 40 Aberdeen Energy companies” in which he examined and explored brightsolid feedback from over 40 Energy companies contacted by us from January 2014 – March 2014 in relation to technology demand, IT agendas and thoughts for the future. Richard then gave insight into 3 key game changers we see coming to the cloud market this year.

  • Hybrid Cloud
  • Revolution of the cloud as we know it
