European Oil & Gas Companies: Business Initiatives and IT Investment Priorities, 2018
This IDC Energy Insights Presentation analyzes a portion of the 2017 IDC Energy Insights Annual Survey for the European oil & gas (O&G) industry. The survey was carried out between July and October 2017 and targeted managers with IT responsibilities. It analyzes data for European oil & gas companies across 10 European countries (France, Germany, the U.K., Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden) from the upstream, midstream, services, and downstream segments.
This presentation focuses on business outlook, IT budget allocation, external IT spending and ownership, leading business initiatives that influence IT decisions, and top information security priorities among oil & gas companies across Europe. Moreover, it covers the substantial growth area among the IT applications and services used by oil and gas organizations, which is likely to receive more investments in the next 12 months compared with the same period last year.
