Microsoft is demonstrating how its solutions can help oil and gas organisations digitalise their operations at the ongoing Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC) 2017.
Specifically, Microsoft’s Connected Field Service empowers field workers to shift to a proactive and predictive service model, leveraging connected devices and machine learning capabilities to combine remote monitoring, digital services, and predictive maintenance.
“The Connected Field Service solution gives a broader picture of operations to optimise resources, improve scheduling through field service and field management software, making the most of employee productivity and resolving issues faster,” explained Omar Saleh, director manufacturing & resources, Microsoft Middle East & Africa. “Organisations can capture and analyse data from connected devices and with the help of Azure IoT Suite, workers can receive real-time alerts from devices—including places that were previously difficult to monitor”
Microsoft, the event’s ‘Strategic Digital Transformation Partner’ is also hosting an Oil and Gas Solution Demo Theatre, where visitors can get first-hand experience of the company’s industry-specific solutions, as well as those of its partners.
