Yesterday at the Aberdeen AECC, Servelec Controls’ Divisional Director Ronald Holden gave delegates attending the ENGenious Symposium some food for thought at the event’s Business Breakfast on Digital Transformation.
Digitalisation is the use of technology to enhance and improve business models, through the conversion of information from a physical to a digital format. The ultimate goal is that of predictive analysis to enable process optimisation. When done well, it allows businesses to run more effectively, improve efficiency, reduce costs and improve safety. This sounds initially very exciting and full of opportunity, but increasingly daunting as you start to consider the practical implications.
How do you get from where you are now, to the big vision you have of digital transformation across your organisation?
This was the question Ronald helped to answer for an audience of innovation-curious delegates with a specific focus on the oil and gas industry.
The answer?... Adopting a progressive capability maturity model. Or in other words a step-by-step process, starting with an analysis of where you are compared to where you want to be, understanding what steps are required to get there, and tackling the foundations first, to ensure everything else can evolve from a solid base.
This is the approach taken by Servelec Controls, experts in Real-time Information Systems when working with its clients, mapping out where they believe their business to be and determining the key areas where they’d like to develop. As a system integrator with this expertise Servelec Controls can help businesses realistically achieve predictive analytics and process optimisation across all their assets and operations.
