CIOs and COOs realize that emerging technologies are creating tremendous innovation opportunities

Leaders in the Oil, Gas and Chemical industry are looking to optimize production, improve communications and reduce maintenance time.

However, a lack of reliable connectivity in complex refining environments hinders adoption of new technologies.

Your opportunities for improved operational agility, new business models and cost control are many. But ask yourself how you will lead your organization to create new revenue streams, reduce costs and increase your organizational agility.

Infrastructure architects and administrators are often unfamiliar with integrating newer technologies and IoT devices like private wireless networks, software-defined networking (SDN), edge computing modular networking, AIOps, and 5G.

In addition, enabling worker connectivity in hazardous environments presents an opportunity to improve safety and productivity.

For organizations that can achieve successful network transformation, the advantages are clear:

  • Artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and data analytics require low-latency and high-volume data transmission to deliver real-time insights extracted from huge data volumes.
  • A centralized, automated network based on 5G and Wi-Fi 6 provides simplicity, programmability and network management ease, for connectivity across extended geographies and complex requirements.
  • Edge solutions offer high performance for distributed enterprise workloads and data analysis.

How Kyndryl creates value for our customers

We deliver unbiased guidance and deep expertise through rapid technology evolution for Oil, Gas and Chemical companies that are looking to optimize productivity and efficiency in their plants.

This enables workers to use tablets and applications at the point where work is being done.  In addition, reducing the time and expenses related to turnaround events at these plants can often justify the expense of a Private LTE or 5G solution. Construction trailers can be lit with Wi-Fi and traffic can be backhauled over private wireless, removing the expense of running cabling to support the turnarounds.

The addition of connectivity throughout the facility also opens the door to new sensor technology for real-time alerting of hazards, and for predictive maintenance.
