Today’s energy companies must deal with ever-increasing amounts of data and information. In response to this dilemma, OpenText – a global leader in Enterprise Information Management (EIM) – wanted to better understand how companies are dealing with the Big Data age. They wished to identify what best practices companies are engaged in and which information management areas are causing the biggest concern.
To take this inquiry further, OpenText partnered with PennEnergy to design a survey specifically for the energy industry. Aimed at uncovering the issues they face and the solutions they employ in their capital projects and Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) initiatives, survey questions covered a range of critical topics. Greatest information management concerns and practices; document control and transmittals; unstructured content management; and regulatory issues related to information management were a few of the topics explored in this survey.
