Hot Topics

To better understand today’s most critical challenges in the oil and gas industry, The Eventful Group is continually researching with key leaders and stakeholders to identify their greatest obstacles and opportunities. The 2015 research included a five-stop tour of North America, meeting face-to-face with leaders and professionals from over 40 oil and gas organizations, in addition to analysts, partners and key representatives of the SAP Oil & Gas Global Advisory Council (GAC). The objective was to gain a greater understanding of the most critical challenges the industry is facing from a business process, people and technology perspective. A primary focus was how technology, SAP in particular, is being utilized to solve these challenges and enable best practices.

The 2015 Hot Topics reflect the questions, topics, challenges and opportunities most critical to the industry in 2015. Importantly, the solutions and best practices that respond to these challenges and opportunities will represent your 2015 conference agenda. To read more, download the full Customer Research Report.
