SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 3, 2014) - Oil & gas companies are on the forefront of the Internet of Things (IoT) revolution because operators and service providers have been working with machine and sensor data for longer than practically any other industry. But 2015 will be a year of significant transformation due to a predicted explosion in data volumes and varieties created at every point in the pipeline, and new technologies that will help companies convert this data into profits. 

On Wednesday, December 10th, technology and oil & gas industry experts will convene to provide a forecast of the top trends for 2015 and provide ideas and use-case scenarios that highlight how big data analytics could provide an additional 4-8% improvement in annual operational efficiency. These experts will also explain why approximately 90% of oil industry executives rate big data analytics as a top priority, and yet fewer than a third have implemented solutions to date.
