Future-Proofed Technology: A Key Component Of Digital Transformation by Brad Noe

Many DX authors highlight the important fact that Digital Transformation is not about technology. However, technology is still a very important part of it, an enabler or a catalyst in many cases.

Digital transformation as a path to growth by Jon Kawamura

The article focuses on the business model part of the digital transformation and offers a practical questionnaire as a help for defining the optimal one for your organization. “Disruptive technologies, introduced at an unprecedented rate, are driving the Industry 4.0 revolution, and companies that can successfully harness the potential of these technologies can enjoy exponential growth. Yet a recent Deloitte study suggests a disconnect between Industry 4.0’s market potential and its attainability, and most companies are using advanced technologies for near-term business operations rather than truly transformative opportunities. Thus, even executives who are ready to invest in digital industrial transformation may see it more as a defensive move rather than an offensive or growth-oriented play.”

Digital Transformation Strategy Advances in Oil and Gas by Brian Buntz

This article provides insights about Digital Transformation initiatives in the Oil and Gas sector. Links to Accenture and McKinsey reports. Companies mentioned in the article; BP, TransCanada, DCP Midstream, etc.

“While the oil and gas industry, especially the upstream business, has embraced sophisticated analytics to reduce risk from the exploration and production of oil and gas, the sector has been relatively slow to implement digital technologies. In that regard, it is similar to the broader process industries and industrial manufacturing sectors, which ranked at the bottom of PwC’s Strategy & Global Digital Operations Study in 2018. Johnson, citing McKinsey data in his keynote, stated the oil and gas sector at large trailed almost every other industry in terms of innovation and technology.”
