TIBCO in the Energy Sector: Turning Data into Innovation -- TIBCO NOW 2019 Chicago. Presentation by Christophe Barriolade, SVP & General Manager, TIBCO Data Management and Michael O'Connell, TIBCO Chief Analytics Officer

Powering Innovation in Energy with TIBCO - collection created by Stu Blair, TIBCO Senior Solutions Consultant (through LinkedIn, with registration link)

Analytics for an Edge: Optimizing Operations in the Energy Sector by Michael O'Connell:   The energy economy has been patchy in 2016.  Cheap crude has led to increased fuel production, and refinery margins are narrowing.  Successful companies are increasing their focus on technology innovations and running a profitable business. This results in more attention to planning and operations issues.  Innovative companies are driving business operations from analytic insights to address business challenges like where to drill, what rigs to operate, which assets to acquire or divest, and how to run the business to optimize production, sales, marketing, and profit.  There has never been a better time for energy companies to sharpen the saw on their data infrastructure and analytics deployments.  

The TIBCO Insight Platform—Data and Systems Integration for Industrial Internet Applications in the Energy Sector by Michael O'Connell:   This article focuses on data and systems integration—surfacing and wrangling data for analytics insights and business optimization.
