Authors: Robert Parker, Chris Niven, Jill Feblowitz, Emilie Ditton, Roberta Bigliani, Steve Conway, Earl C. Joseph, Ph.D.

Abstract

This IDC study presents the IDC Energy Insights analyst team's outlook for 2016, and the 24 months and beyond planning horizon, through the lens of the 10 predictions that make up, in IDC Energy Insights' view, the framework for IT and line-of-business (LOB) decision makers' and influencers' planning and execution of technology-related initiatives in the year ahead.

"Over the past year, the oil and gas picture has changed dramatically," said Chris Niven, research director of Oil and Gas, IDC Energy Insights. "Our research shows that oil and gas companies do believe that technology — automation, Big Data and analytics, and the cloud — can mitigate the risk of low oil and gas prices. The industry needs to keep a focus on innovation to be ready whatever comes next."
