Join speakers from Wood, Chrysaor, TAQA and BP at the 2020 Digital Energy Virtual Summit.

On 29th April, DIGIT is hosting the Digital Energy Virtual Summit. Now in its 7th year, the annual Digital Energy Summit is a must-attend event for the energy IT community and brings together senior technologists from across the industry for an informative day of knowledge exchange, discussion and networking.

The Oil and Gas industry has undergone significant changes in recent years amidst a challenging economic period; one that forced organisations to address inefficiencies, adopt more agile methodologies and accelerate digitalisation programmes.

During this period, IT leaders have become increasingly important as companies turn to technology to modernise operations, automate processes and deliver a competitive advantage.

The 2020 Summit, which is being run as a fully virtual event, will contextualise some of the changes and technologies transforming the Oil and Gas sector, and explore how the industry is fundamentally changing.
