LONDON, Aug. 29, 2014 /CNW/ - The development of the Canadian Oil Sands is one of the largest infrastructure projects in human history. At a time where technology is continually advancing, developments of such scale and importance necessitate end-to-end digitization to maximize the potential, and cost-effectiveness, of these oil reserves.
With this in mind, the Oil and Gas Mobility Summit Calgary will bring together senior IT and enterprise mobility professionals to explore and discuss their key challenges to implementing a mobility strategy.
The conference, hosted by Oil & Gas IQ - a division of global events company IQPC - will be a unique opportunity for Big Oil, NOCs and vendors to discuss key issues for the industry including BYOD vs. CYOD, mobile device and security management, developing an in-house mobile application strategy and implementing a real-time mobility solution for oil and gas safety infrastructure.
"As the mobile IT industry shifts away from marketing applications and into enterprise apps designed for internal workflow, there is great opportunity for the oil and gas industry to take advantage.
Traditionally Oil and Gas companies prefer niche, focused events as opposed to cross industry gatherings. That's why the Oil and Gas Mobility Summit Calgary is attracting the industry's key players." - Carly Greene, Summit Director
