Michael Moore, Ph.D. will be sharing strategies and approaches for leveraging the industry-leading graph data technology to build large-scale digital twins capable of unifying data across disparate sources, delivering rich analytics, and supporting near real-time monitoring of critical assets. With a graph database, you can easily understand and query the relationships between devices, networks, sensors, and users. Also hear how Neo4j digital twin analytical use cases include interventions, predictive maintenance, bill of materials management and network dependency analyses.

Our world is transforming and rapidly becoming more digital - we are on the cusp of a location aware IoT driven technological revolution, affecting most, if not all, industries. With billions of connected sensors deployed on assets and networks, and in products around the world, companies are collecting and processing data at a higher frequency than ever before - creating a digital ‘nervous system’ for just about everything that we do. The challenge that continues to plague many organizations is how to make effective value-driven decisions from this wealth of data, in the context of their real-world operations. 

Many organizations are looking for help and guidance in applying technologies appropriately to improve situational awareness, create measurable operational efficiencies, and optimize performance metrics. This presentation will outline the systems to accept, manage, analyze and help recognize patterns in your data streams to create value today.

If you can't measure it, you can't manage it, or improve it.” This variation on a famous quote by management guru Peter Drucker has been a driving force in managing people and processes in the most successful companies over the last century. When it comes to everything else, you need IoT to measure it and digital twins to manage and improve it. The drive toward net-zero emissions is an all-hands-on-deck imperative requiring new levels of innovation throughout the oil and gas industry. Join Rob as he shows you how digital technologies like digital twins and IoT have an important role to play in this transition.
