By: Chris Niven


This IDC Perspective examines what chief information officers (CIOs) are doing to prepare budgets and strategies for this year. This document is specifically geared toward the offices of chief information officers in the oil and gas (O&G) businesses. Readers will be able to make comparisons with peers in the industry on metrics such as IT objectives and spending priorities. The main focus of this document is on the key business drivers and enabling technologies and approaches for upstream, midstream, and downstream oil and gas companies.

According to Chris Niven, research director, IDC Energy Insights, "Oil and gas companies are faced with challenges for increasing operations productivity and performance. The companies that will survive and prosper are the ones that know how to leverage and apply DX initiatives like big data and analytics, cloud, and mobility, and the ultimate objective for them to achieve is operational excellence."
