In all organizations, including oil and gas, legacy methods to achieve various business objectives must be replaced to avoid costly delays and declines in productivity and efficiency, from the C-suite to the oil rig. There is no denying the future is digital, and in the oil and gas industry, 75% of companies believe they already have the right level of skills to derive value from mobile and cloud investments.
