Between turbulent economic market conditions and the transformation of the global energy landscape, upstream oil and gas organizations face increasing pressure to exploit new finds and enhance recovery from existing fields. In this volatile business climate, data is a key differentiating asset.

Reaching sustainable growth requires doing more with less and moving faster. Data has become an accelerator for reviving industry collaboration to uncover new revenue opportunities up and down the entire value chain.

The energy industry’s largest and most successful collaboration to date, The Open Group OSDU Forum represents a wide-ranging consortium across 130 leading oil and gas service companies, systems integrators, cloud providers and academia, and over 30 of the world’s leading energy producers including Shell, BP, ExxonMobil, Equinor and Chevron forming the core producer management committee.

The ODSU Forum works collaboratively to build a cloud native data foundation with application-specific (API) and industry-data standards for seamless data access and integration. This helps fast track innovation, reduce costs and accelerate the agility of the energy ecosystem.

Data platforms must combine business and technology drivers to be successful and platform choice really matters. Energy industry leaders who harness their data and accelerate advanced technologies across their workflows stand to reap big rewards.

Enterprises across the globe have turned to IBM Cloud Pak for Data to solve their most pressing challenges , bringing them one step closer to trusted, automated AI.

Building on the streamlined hybrid-cloud foundation of OpenShift, IBM Open Data for Industries offers an enterprise grade open source platform on the OSDU data foundation that supports infrastructure-agnostic, vendor-neutral solutions to reduce complexity for building a single exploration, drilling and production workflow.
