With so much pressure to contain costs, now would seem like a prudent time to pull back on new investments in IT areas like mobile, cloud and analytics. But new, strategic IT spending can actually help save money in this tight fiscal environment.
To realize growth and profits in the business world, there must be a particular way of doing things. Six Sigma refers to a business management strategy that encompasses the implementation of quality attainment metrics to enhance profitability and client satisfaction while eliminating deficiencies within the organization. Borrowing its terminologies from martial arts belt classification system, Green Belts are different from Black Belts by a significant magnitude.
It’s not a big secret that big oil and gas companies are dangerous work environments. There are many elements and areas of the industry that are hazardous to employees. But, there are many jobs to be done within in the field. Plus, there are many skilled workers who are good at what they do and like what they do in the industry.
The Oil & Gas IQ team were in London this week for the 2016 Oil and Gas Intellectual Property Summit. The event brought together IP experts and leaders to discuss best practice for IP Portfolio Management and Innovation. Here are some of the highlights from Twitter.
During this webinar we will use the intelligence gained from our comprehensive survey and dig deeper into the answers given, offer fortifying insights and suggestions. Additionally we will share example scenarios on how we believe IT Security should become a continuous process.
The oil and gas sector has always been an early adaptor of innovations in mobile communications. Teams operating in the harshest of remote working environments have embraced DMR and TETRA radio networks but are now looking to extend their capabilities.
Before we set about developing the next generation MTP8000Ex Series our key aim was to make a smarter ATEX radio that better addressed the needs of its users – the workers in hazardous environments. We listened to the challenges and frustrations these workers faced every day and did something about them. All with the aim of increasing their efficiency and improving their safety in hazardous environments whilst at the same time making the radios easier to use than ever before.
When designing an ATEX radio safety comes first – it’s really that simple. That’s why we built the next generation of TETRA ATEX radios, the MTP8000Ex Series to be safer than ever before. They are designed to be the communications lifeline for workers, protecting them and keeping them safe in the most hazardous environments whether they are a maintenance team at an oil refinery or firefighters responding to an incident at a chemical plant.
We are a society of consumers. We grow, extract and process materials and food stuffs into those everyday products that we take for granted. But when was the last time you even considered how complicated, difficult or even dangerous the processes might be behind food on our table or the latest must have gadget?
