The Digital Transformation Zone (formally the Digital Oilfield Zone), one of the most popular exhibition features, launched in 2014, is back bigger and better at Global Petroleum Show this year as the show continues to keep up with the latest developments across the energy sector. Digital transformation is the number one IT trend that will fundamentally change the face the energy industry.
This dedicated zone provides key insights into the world of digitalisation and how innovative disruptive technologies are transforming business models with the use of artificial intelligence, blockchain, robotics, machine learning, real-time data analytics and cloud computing. New for 2019, the Digital Transformation Zone has tripled in size with over 9,000 square feet relocated in Halls D and E.
In today’s fast-paced environment digital transformation is rapidly changing the landscape in the energy sector. Energy companies have significantly amped up their investment in the digital technologies in the last few years resulting in improved decision making for exploration and production assets, including reservoirs and pipelines. Global investment in digital electricity infrastructure and software has grown by over 20% annually since 2014, reaching USD 47 billion in 2016. This digital investment in 2016 was almost 40% higher than investment in gas-fired power generation worldwide.
