Digital transformation has picked up speed around the world and across all sectors, creating significant tangible value for companies by improving their efficiency and productivity, facilitating better, faster decision-making and generating greater, more profitable growth.

The annual doubling of the world’s computing power and data generation have combined to make this accelerated adoption possible – making technology solutions developed, in some cases, many years ago, more broadly available to industry, business and government alike.

Similar opportunities to create value exist for oil and gas producers, product and service providers, as well as innovators in the energy sector.

Join us on for an informative and engaging discussion on digital transformation:

  • Consider what digital transformation includes and the capabilities it delivers – hear about real-world use cases of companies (oil & gas and beyond) generating value, and effectively managing the risk associated with innovation.
  • Hear about SAIT’s exciting new Digital Corporate Training Solutions powered by SAIT’s Digital Talent Hub (SADT) for today’s leaders and industry professionals
  • Bring your voice to the table to provide your input and guidance to SAIT on how to make their programming as effective and relevant as possible for you, your organization and the Canadian oil and gas sector

After the formal discussion, time will also be allotted to facilitate attendees informally meeting and networking with others in the industry as they choose.
