• We need a clear data governance, enforced by a set of rules so as to guarantee data quality and to accelerate its generation's process
• Those rules are implemented through a centralized repository with three layers of complexity, starting with the samples, through the products and then the analyses
• This process and the data generated can be measured through a decision making interactive panel, where the information within all those layers can be transformed into metrics for each process
• This interactive panel is currently used for a management decision making weekly meeting

11:00 Next-generation data transport solutions for the oil and gas industry from Aspera, an IBM company

Per  Hansen

Per Hansen , Regional Manager, Sales Engineering EMEA, Aspera, an IBM company

In digitally-connected exploration and production, enormous amounts of data are created.  A single well can generate upwards of a terabyte of data daily and seismic exploration data sets can easily reach several terabytes in size. Aspera technology enables Oil & Gas companies to transfer large files and data sets at maximum speed, fully utilizing the available bandwidth, regardless of file type, size, transfer distance or network conditions, reducing turnaround times for gathering, processing and distribution, alleviating expensive IT infrastructure upgrades, and eliminating the need for slow, costly shipments. This presentation covers how Aspera solutions can transform oil and gas data transport by moving big data over any network connection including terrestrial, WiFi, cellular, and satellite.
 
Some key use cases include:

• Transferring multi-TB pre-stack data from remote sites all over the world.
• Distributing large post-stack data sets to globally dispersed teams.
• Optimizing data set staging and analysis across HPC centers.
• High-performance synchronization for millions of files and petabytes of data

15:00 Analytics predict profits – is business leadership digitally aware?

Andy Moore

Andy Moore, Independent Consultant and former IS Manager, Knowledge Information and Data, Santos,

• As costs cripple the industry, Big Oil chases techniques to produce more effectively and safely 
• 21st Century thinking suggests that Information Technology would have a major role to play
• However, the promise of data-driven E&P is compromised by a 20th century view of IT’s role
• Meanwhile, the data-scientist sees not only how information contributes to reduced costs but also, more importantly, how it can be used to dramatically increase revenue
• This presentation will discuss how those charged with managing E&P information and data can convince a sceptical leadership that big data means bigger profits rather than more IT spend

WHAT IS CPD?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development’. It is essentially a philosophy, which maintains that in order to be effective, learning should be organised and structured. The most common definition is:

‘A commitment to structured skills and knowledge enhancement for Personal or Professional competence’

CPD is a common requirement of individual membership with professional bodies and Institutes. Increasingly, employers also expect their staff to undertake regular CPD activities.

Undertaken over a period of time, CPD ensures that educational qualifications do not become obsolete, and allows for best practice and professional standards to be upheld.

CPD can be undertaken through a variety of learning activities including instructor led training courses, seminars and conferences, e:learning modules or structured reading.

CPD AND PROFESSIONAL INSTITUTES

There are approximately 470 institutes in the UK across all industry sectors, with a collective membership of circa 4 million professionals, and they all expect their members to undertake CPD.

For some institutes undertaking CPD is mandatory e.g. accountancy and law, and linked to a licence to practice, for others it’s obligatory. By ensuring that their members undertake CPD, the professional bodies seek to ensure that professional standards, legislative awareness and ethical practices are maintained.

CPD Schemes often run over the period of a year and the institutes generally provide online tools for their members to record and reflect on their CPD activities.

TYPICAL CPD SCHEMES AND RECORDING OF CPD (CPD points and hours)

Professional bodies and Institutes CPD schemes are either structured as ‘Input’ or ‘Output’ based.

‘Input’ based schemes list a precise number of CPD hours that individuals must achieve within a given time period. These schemes can also use different ‘currencies’ such as points, merits, units or credits, where an individual must accumulate the number required. These currencies are usually based on time i.e. 1 CPD point = 1 hour of learning.

‘Output’ based schemes are learner centred. They require individuals to set learning goals that align to professional competencies, or personal development objectives. These schemes also list different ways to achieve the learning goals e.g. training courses, seminars or e:learning, which enables an individual to complete their CPD through their preferred mode of learning.

The majority of Input and Output based schemes actively encourage individuals to seek appropriate CPD activities independently.

As a formal provider of CPD certified activities, SMI Group can provide an indication of the learning benefit gained and the typical completion. However, it is ultimately the responsibility of the delegate to evaluate their learning, and record it correctly in line with their professional body’s or employers requirements.

GLOBAL CPD

Increasingly, international and emerging markets are ‘professionalising’ their workforces and looking to the UK to benchmark educational standards. The undertaking of CPD is now increasingly expected of any individual employed within today’s global marketplace.

CPD Certificates

We can provide a certificate for all our accredited events. To request a CPD certificate for a conference , workshop, master classes you have attended please email events@smi-online.co.uk
