In just a few days, members of the energy industry will have an opportunity to come together to discuss intelligent energy initiatives and the keys to accelerating their transformation.
Join IBM at the SPE Intelligent Energy Event, to be held in Utrecht, The Netherlands from 27-29 March, 2012. This international event marks a milestone on the oil and gas industry’s roadmap toward fully integrated operations and IBM will have a strong presence showcasing a variety of capabilities for the oil and gas industry.
In the area of Smarter Asset Management, event attendees will have an opportunity to investigate IBM’s innovative approach toward implementing intelligent energy initiatives such as Enterprise Asset Management and Turnaround Optimization. Also on display will be IBM’s Service Management for Chemicals and Petroleum which features state-of-the-art products such as Maximo for Oil & Gas which helps companies optimize operational intelligence through standardization, convergence, collaboration, and the adoption of better operational practices.
Additional oil and gas capabilities from IBM will be featured at the SPE Intelligent Energy Event in the areas of Integrated Operations and the Value of Smarter Oil and Gas Fields. IBM will also demonstrate its expertise around the Health, Safety & Environment area through Asset Tracking & Personal Safety and Integrated Environmental Monitoring solutions. IBMers will also be presenting papers on topics such as Predictive Asset Maintenance and Optimization of Smarter Oilfields among others.
We hope to see you at this year’s conference and look forward to discussing these and many other areas of mutual interest with you.

Crowe, a naturalised Australian, was born a kiwi.
Kiwis. The birds. The fruit. The people. Are awesome.
This week, my favorite kiwi is by far our Smarter Rail customer; KiwiRail.
Tod, Jessica and Kevin put together a pretty awesome press release, "KiwiRail Selects IBM to Deliver Smarter Rail Network for New Zealand" on how KiwiRail is using "...asset management and advanced analytics services to improve the speed, safety, and reliability of rail service across 4,000 km of lines."
For us Americans, 4,000 km of track is about 2,485 miles. Which, as the crow flies*, is roughly the distance from New York city to San Francisco.
The thing that excites me about what KiwiRail is doing is that the management has an analytics portion to it with our Cognos business analytics software.
One of my previous roles at IBM was working on Business Intelligence marketing and I got to know the space pretty well. In talking with so many of our customers, it was the analytics that contributed to their ability to innovate and save time, money and reduce risk.
The combination of GBS services, Maximo software and Cognos for KiwiRail is going to be a huge win for the entire population of New Zealand considering how much of their economy is based on rail transport.
The take away here for our non-rail customers is to look at the Smarter Planet solutions that match your industry.
We cover a lot of ground with KiwiRail and their requirements. If we can do that for them, what can we do for you?
IBM is striving to develop solutions based around your industry and provide things, like Integrated Service Management in this case, to match your business objectives and help you achieve success in your industry.
Take a look at the IBM Smarter Planet website and the site we have devoted to Integrated Service Management for Industries and post comments below or reach out to your IBM sales rep and/or Business Partner (use the Business Partner Locator) and ask them to sit down and talk about it with you.
PS I refused to put a "crow"/"crowe" pun in this blog...you're welcome

Recent IBM news on “Smarter Cities” is invoking fond memories of one of my favorite courses at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute: Politics of design taught by Professor Langdon Winner. Some of my favorite discussions during this course focused on urban theory and planning and environmentally and ethically responsible innovations. A few of my favorite personal readings included:
The concrete connection between
While innovations and technologies always fascinate me, personally I’m most interested in the political, socio-cultural aspects of Palmisano’s statement below:
“All the ways in which the world works come together in our cities. They are the proverbial melting pot -- not only for immigrants, but for systems, blending them together to engender new forms of commerce, of culture, of science, of life and of society. Which is why cities -- more than states, provinces or even nations -- are likely to be the crucible for human progress and evolution in the coming century.”
Smart cities require smart people and deliberate thinking. How will
