opportunities.

Internal audits have been conducted where BSP consistently being poor on governance, a centralize area and clear roles and responsibility.

Dave Camden - Director - Flare Solutions Limited

Case Study: How can Digital Transformation help me handle information overload? (Via Skype)

Talk Description.
A multinational integrated oil and gas company and one of the seven "Supermajor" oil company in this acquired a large oil and gas company to strengthen its portfolio in a number of geographies. As a result of the acquisition, an entire oil company’s 4 Pb data set, amounting to more than 300M files, needed to be quickly and efficiently absorbed and integrated.

This case study shows how the organisation absorbed a vast amount of content and deployed content clean-up, classification and analytics techniques to deliver relevant content to support the technical project teams.

Flare was engaged to assist with the effort by leveraging a number of proprietary techniques to understand what was in the data set, define how it should be handled, and develop a go- forward strategy.

The presentation will provide an overview of the challenges addressed in handling such a huge influx of data, documents and other content, residing in non-connected infrastructures within a limited time frame, while maintaining business as usual.
