Talk Description.
The key is driving costs down with the right use data. It's about the right use, efficient use and innovative utilisation of correct and reliable engineering data.

Collecting these data into one place is the first step. This dataset then has to be verified to assure its correctness and following from that this dataset is to be made available for use in other engineering and even to some extent financial applications. Thus, this dataset has to be reliable.

Intergraph's role today is not to just provide the engineering and data management tools to our customers. We are a partner in providing and creating verified and reliable data solutions for our customers
Faizal is currently the Sales Account Manager based in Intergraph PPM Kuala Lumpur. Faizal had served with a number of oil & gas service companies as well as oil & gas equipment manufacturers with more than 20 years of experience in the energy & utility industries. His current focus is in the area of surface facilities engineering data and assisting plant/facilities owners and operators to simply have a reliable set of data that they can use for their everyday operations and maintenance activities, and furthermore to improve the plants' operations.
