About The Event

Asset 3.png

Traditionally, oil and gas companies have focused on operational activities to drive revenue. As the marketplace has become increasingly more competitive, businesses have started to adopt data-driven technology to give them an edge by also controlling bottom line costs. 

Technology is moving at an incredible pace, so how do you select a viable solution that will address your immediate goals as well as anticipating future needs and reducing risk? With the speed of innovation in the industry, how does your business adopt these technologies in a cost-effective and seamless way?

We believe it is our responsibility as key technology providers to make these systems adoptable and adaptable.  While some solution providers rely on one-to-one connections (or ‘closed networks’) as a business model, we believe businesses are best served through the flexibility and support of an interoperable system.

 

This year, the Cortex Connection Summit will provide a meeting place to drive discussion and ideation around disrupting the concept of closed networks and using today’s technology with your current business processes to achieve the greatest operational and financial performance.
