1:10 PM Look to Waterto Understand your Data: Data Management at ExxonMobil

As the saying goes – in the digital paradigm, every company is a data company. The energy industry has used data since its inception in the late 1800s. Looking for hydrocarbon resources in the subsurface involves tremendous data gymnastics involving seismic data to characterize what lies beneath. While we have dealt with data for decades the challenge around managing data is even greater now given its exponential growth. Data is like water in many ways - it is pervasive and critical. This talk will explore how learning’s from how we manage Water as humans might help us effectively prosecute our data challenges in the energy, chemicals & resources industries. The ‘water and data’ analogy is interesting and it provides some valuable insights on how to strategically manage data.
