This IDC study outlines the steps and requirements necessary to successfully employ IoT within upstream oil and gas operations, particularly, the considerations required for extending IoT implementations beyond the pilot phase to deliver far greater value to operations. Specifically, we will answer the following questions within this document:
- What is IoT?
- Why is IoT important for upstream oil and gas operations?
- Who are the key stakeholders, and what are the expected benefits to each?
- How can upstream oil and gas operators take advantage of IoT?
"APEJ upstream oil and gas operators continue to face pressure to realise value from their technology investments. Delivery against business demands a step change in efficiency. Creating the foundational capabilities of IoT is a critical part of any technology led transformation," says Emilie Ditton, associate VP, IDC Energy Insights.
