Title: The Challenges and Opportunities of Big Data & Advanced Analytics at Shell
Abstract: With over 46 petabytes of data on disk, Shell has both a big data problem and a significant opportunity. As an integrated energy company, business opportunities for advanced analytics exist throughout the value chain. The Advanced Analytics Centre of Excellence was established in 2013 to act as a focal point for the advanced analytics agenda across the group. This session will provide insight into the way in which the CoE is seeking to drive value from advanced analytics, and will also highlight some of the challenges encountered along the way.
