The session proved to be one of the most engaging, with a lively discussion on how to overcome internal reticence to deal with data cleansing and the best ways to take the first step. It was clear from this and the other speaker's presentations that the issue of data cleansing is today increasingly seen as a key matter on the journey to digital transformation, and that companies are taking active steps to address it.
Other presentations at the event looked at the importance of data governance, the need to instil the right skills and culture to assure success in digital transformation, and the increasing tendency towards including environmental data in describing materials master data.
On Day 2 of the event, Len joined leader from Spirit Energy, Wellsite and Incture to consider and debate the lessons learnt and future ambitions from digital transformation in the upstream O&G sector. That session covered technology, human factors and cybersecurity, as well as wider trends seen in other sectors that will affect O&G firms.
