Dave Camden - IM Consultant - Flare Solutions Limited

Case study: How can Digital Transformation approaches help me handle information overload?

Talk Description.
A multinational integrated oil and gas company and one of the seven "Supermajor" oil company in this acquired a large oil and gas company to strengthen its portfolio in a number of geographies. As a result of the acquisition, an entire oil company’s 4 Pb data set, amounting to more than 300M files, needed to be quickly and efficiently absorbed and integrated.

This case study shows how the organisation absorbed a vast amount of content and deployed content clean-up, classification and analytics techniques to deliver relevant content to support the technical project teams.

Flare was engaged to assist with the effort by leveraging a number of proprietary techniques to understand what was in the data set, define how it should be handled, and develop a go- forward strategy.

The presentation will provide an overview of the challenges addressed in handling such a huge influx of data, documents and other content, residing in non-connected infrastructures within a limited time frame, while maintaining business as usual.



Dave started in the oil business in 1976 as a field engineer in the Middle East. In 1982 he joined BG as a petrophysicist supporting the global exploration teams, going on to become their petroleum engineering manager. After BG there was a short period in IBM before Dave and a number of colleagues started Flare in 1998. Since then he has worked with many oil and service companies and government bodies, helping them manage a wide range of E&P information and data.
When not working Dave gets as far away from computer screens as he can by hiking in mountains and spending time in his garden
