Like the oxygen we breathe, journey analytics brings life to the customer behind those devices, over time getting to know their favorite pastry choice, when they’re most likely to buy gas, and how long they stay online while in the station’s café.
If you want your customers to enjoy seamless, personalized experiences, you need to treat them like people. That means marketing to the person — not the device. When you know a customer’s interests, wants, and needs — perhaps even before they do — you’ve succeeded at becoming a true experience business. For some, this may require a shift from analytics as a tool to analytics as a way of life. It may also mean evolving corporate or office culture.
Experts say the demand for electricity, natural gas, and water will double or triple as billions of people join the digital economy, and the use of energy and water will grow while vehicles and mass transit go electric. One thing is clear – the digital economy needs clean, dependable, and affordable electricity. This should be a great outlook for power generators, distributors, and retailers, but decarbonization, deregulation, and decentralization are disrupting the century-old utilities hierarchy. A “Digital Energy Network” is emerging that reflects new structures of power generation, transmission, distribution, and retail. It will foster new business models and processes and transform work in a competitive and collaborative digital economy.

When energy use is reviewed at a national or international level
we realize that about 35% of the western world’s total energy
and carbon dioxide (CO2) footprint is linked to transport and
a large fraction of that with freight movement.
Collectively, cars and trucks account for nearly one-fifth of all
U.S. emissions, emitting around 24 pounds of CO2 and other
global-warming gases for every gallon of gas1.
So, if we are to reduce energy usage and abate CO2 emissions
and deliver cost savings, it is essential that a lot of attention is
paid to commercial transport.
Priorities for Increasing Fuel Economy explores these challenges
and provides the essential information you need to help you achieve
competitive advantage across your commercial fleet operations.
The cost of a single turbine failure – whether it’s a steam, gas, water or combined cycle turbine - can amount to hundreds of thousands of dollars per hour.
Avoiding turbine outages is business critical, but do you know what warning signs to look out for, and what steps to take to get to the root of the problem?
In this video, at a high-tech ballistics center managed by National Technical Systems in Camden, Arkansas, HP simulated a gas leak using real explosives to blow up a data center. Every system failed-over after the explosion in less than two minutes—including data on an HP StorageWorks XP12000 Disk Array which failed over flawlessly to an HP StorageWorks XP24000 Disk Array.

Efficiency is not about maxing out utilization, nor is it about achieving the highest possible MIPS, IOPS or any other standard metric. Technically, efficiency is about the ratio of useful work performed to the energy expended in doing that work. You want the greatest amount of output from your IT infrastructure for the lowest possible cost. It’s a bit like long-distance driving and working to achieve the highest possible miles per gallon through constant observation of time, speed and gas consumption in the face of varying traffic and weather conditions. Flooring the gas pedal is not always the best option. What can you do to optimize your converged infrastructure efficiency? While there are no 10-second, quick-fix answers, here are five strategies you can start implementing right now to bring your organization much closer to optimal efficiency and long-term cost savings.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is connecting our world in ways that were unimaginable 10 years ago—collecting data on everything we do and using it to streamline our daily activities. In doing so, IoT is changing the way that consumers think about service. Service organizations must be prepared to support these new customer expectations to ensure continued satisfaction to strengthen and foster loyalty.
Additionally, IoT is making its way into the enterprise, especially among organizations in industries like utilities, oil and gas, medical devices, manufacturing and telecommunications. Connected devices enable more efficient processes for maintenance and repair by constantly providing information on machines’ performance, environmental conditions, and possible failures. For example, a connected washing machine in a customer’s home could automatically send out an error report to the manufacturer when it experiences a failure. This is where field service management comes in.

At its Build conference in May, Microsoft took the wraps off Cosmos DB, the new incarnation of its
existing cloud-based Azure DocumentDB NoSQL database. With a nod to the dramatic, Microsoft
terms Cosmos DB as its biggest database bet since SQL Server; it is positioning it as its flagship
cloud database, suited for use cases ranging from security and fraud detection, to IoT (consumer and
industrial), personalization, e-commerce, gaming, social networks, chats, messaging, bots, oil and gas
recovery and refining, and smart utility grids. Cosmos DB is a good example of how cloud platform
providers are rethinking databases for scalable, elastic environments and commodity infrastructure.
The platform that is most comparable is Google Cloud Spanner, but each of these databases is
engineered for different purposes: Cosmos DB as a globally distributed operational database and
Spanner as a globally distributed SQL-supporting OLTP database.
The highlights of Cosmos DB include its flexibility in

Thanks to the emergence of cloud computing, it’s no longer possible for IT departments to be just a builder and manager of technology; you must also now be a broker of IT services across the enterprise. Consequently, you need to design an IT environment that offers the flexibility, efficiency, and security to meet these expectations and aligns services with business needs.
This is a task that’s best achieved by striking a balance among IT domains, spanning traditional internal IT, private, and public cloud environments. But how do you achieve the right IT balance for delivering cloud services? Read this white paper to find out.

Enterprise project portfolio management (EPPM) is mission critical to the oil and gas industry, which is driven by billions of dollars in capital investments. These large-scale exploration and production projects, if they fail, have an impact on the company and their share price. EPPM provides that full end-to-end capability to support the capital asset lifecycle – from planning, building & construction, operation & maintenance, to decommissioning. Read seven quick wins to lower costs and discover how to accelerate revenue.
Asset intensive organizations like Oil and Gas have their own industry specific challenges when it comes to managing their asset's lifecycles. One area that is often overlooked or pushed off until the last minute is the decommissioning phase of their assets. Leaders in the industry turn to three areas to transform their business-Risk and Financial Management, Operational Excellence, and Innovation
Global competition and volatile markets are creating a challenging business climate for project based firms which leave them with little room for error when managing projects. Oil & Gas companies have their own individual challenges when it comes to managing their asset's lifecycles, but one area that is often overlooked or pushed off until the last minute is the decommissioning phase of their assets. The key to decommissioning is delivering projects and milestones on time and within budget. Those companies looking to improve the retirement phase of their asset’s lifecycle should follow this checklist.
As the oil and gas pipeline industry grapples with change at every level — including increasing pipeline operations and expanding regulatory oversight infrastructure —cost savings and operating efficiencies have become more important than ever. Both pipeline operators and contractors can benefit from utilizing EPPM solutions to help them pinpoint the best strategies to develop and implement projects from conception through execution to end game — thereby helping to reduce risk and manage cost. In the end, it’s all about smartly using an approach, such as EPPM solutions, like those from Oracle, to help pipeline operators and contractors reduce costs at the project, portfolio, and enterprise levels through the project lifecycle. The midstream companies that are able to implement the best approach to managing risk to their operations in the most cost - effective way will be the ones to best weather another tumultuous decade to come for the oil and gas industry.
With budgets in the billions, timelines spanning years, and life cycles extending over decades, oil and gas projects present enormous management challenges for the organizations sponsoring them. Oracle helps oil and gas companies rise to these challenges – and reap the corresponding rewards – by providing an enterprise project portfolio management (EPPM) solution that gives them visibility into and control over every aspect of their operations.
This brochure shows how IBM Maximo for Oil and Gas can help oil and gas companies boost operational intelligence through standardization, convergence, collaboration, and the adoption of better operational practices.
