As part of GE’s Predix platform, Digital Inspection is developing as a key focus area for Predix’s product roadmap. As part of the focus, GE Digital is releasing Predictive Corrosion Management (PCM). PCM is as its name implies, a system to predicatively manage corrosion of pipes and vessels. In the Oil & Gas space, immense resources are spent planning inspections, manually conducting inspections, and trying to predict corrosive wear.

10 Predictions for the Oil & Gas Industry

Chris NivenSmart Oil & Gas

The IDC Energy Insights study presents the IDC Energy Insights analyst team's outlook for 2017, and the 24-months-and-beyond planning horizon, through the lens of the 10 predictions that make up, in IDC Energy Insights' view, the framework for IT and line-of-business decision makers' and influencers' planning and execution of technology-related initiatives in the year ahead.

The traditional utility business model is broken, the pace of decarbonization is accelerating, and distributed generation is on the rise. At the same time, technology and the overall business environment are changing at a tremendous speed, which will only hasten. The outlook for the worldwide utility industry for 2017, as well as the planning horizon for the next 24 months and beyond, is presented through the 10 predictions below. IDC Energy Insights believes these predictions to make up the framework for IT and line-of-business (LOB) decision makers and influencers' technology-related initiatives in the year ahead.

The IDC Futurescape: Worldwide Mining 2017 Predictions provides mining companies with the top 10 predictions and underlying drivers that we expect to impact mining companies' IT investments in 2017 and beyond. Technology leaders and their counterparts in the line-of-business (LOB) operations can use this study to guide their IT strategic planning efforts. Key themes woven into our worldwide mining top 10 predictions for 2017 include the need for digital transformation (DX), new ways of innovating, more integrated IT and operational technology (OT), business security, and rethinking the future of work. While the predictions offered here largely focus on the near term to midterm (2017–2020), the impact of many of these predictions will be felt for years to come. Most of our predictions refer to a continuum of change within the wider ecosystem of the mining industry and global economy.
