Event overview

Unlocking value by optimal utilization of material and equipment, handling variations due to unpredictable business cycles, effective workforce management, better quote to cash processing and better visibility of business parameters coupled with greater insights are the key tenets around which digital transformation is happening in the oil field services industry.

One of the largest providers of pressure pumping and oil field services for the petroleum industry (BJ Services) leveraged end-to-end Microsoft technology stack to enable exponential business growth with ‘Elastic IT’. This unique model was designed to provide elastic IT cost and capability to our client based on market cycles, ramping up and down based on employee consumption of service.

On December 13, 2018, at The Westin Galleria in Houston, Infosys is partnering with Microsoft to host an oil field services round table and panel discussion with BJ Services on topics mentioned below:

  • Modern day opportunities and business realities of the oil and gas industry
  • Applicability of next-gen digital technologies for the oil field sector
  • Common challenges and how the industry is trying to solve them
  • BJ Services engagement story with Infosys and Microsoft in an Elastic IT model

Brad Krol, Director at BJ Services will be sharing his story on how BJ Services addressed some of the critical operational challenges faced in the industry that made a significant revenue impact; how BJ Services achieved significantly improved cash flow as well as netting valuable cost savings. We’ll also be showcasing a demo of the Infosys ‘Dynamics OFS’ solution that was successfully implemented at BJ Services along with other ‘Next-Gen’ solutions from Microsoft stack tailored specifically to the energy and oil field services industry.
