Today's blog entry comes from Terry Ray.
In my last blog, I offered my perspective on the Nuclear Renaissance – the resurgence of the industry, the building of new nuclear plants, and the generation of smarter nuclear.
The world of ‘smart’ is permeating all industries as they become more instrumented, interconnected and intelligent. Becoming smart is not without its complexities as companies must address technology and infrastructure challenges, resource constraints, process disconnect, and risk and compliance.
All industries, in particular – energy, are delivering new, innovative services across complex business infrastructures. These services are taking many forms but some of the more notable ones are dashboards spanning all business functions, managing enterprise and IT assets in one system, managing all assets across the entire asset lifecycle, and implementing industry specific solutions.
As the oil and gas industry becomes ‘smarter’, we are seeing more and more companies implementing ‘smart solutions’ such as: availability modeling of all E&P systems; reducing non-productive time with wired drillpipe; sub-sea seismic; downhole sensors; and failure predictions. These solutions require an Integrated Service Management approach to enable the delivery of innovative services by providing visibility, control and automation across the business infrastructure.
What is your Company’s current and future view of working in a Smarter Planet? What Smarter solutions have you implemented and what benefits have you realized? **Let us know by commenting on this blog entry.
