Om Aker BP Ledelse Data liberation
Jeg tipper at kun fem til åtte prosent av dataene til et oljeselskap blir utnyttet, der de resterende blir lagret for senere bruk. Nå har vi skapt en plattform som strømmer alle Aker BP sine tidsseriedata og vi ser at visualisering og bruk av data skaper basisen for nye forretningsmodeller.

Data has always been a fundamental part of the oil and gas industry, but there has been a big problem to get the data liberated. How will making data available fundamentally change the business model in the oil and gas industry?
