Bit Stew to host webinar with North American Oil & Gas Pipelines

The Oil and Gas pipeline industry is facing increasing pressure to lower costs, reduce risk, and improve situational awareness. Real-time data integration and analysis are increasingly recognized as the first steps toward risk reduction, optimized asset performance and improved operational processes. However, the challenge of data integration can be overwhelming. Every 30,000 miles of gas pipeline generates 17 terabytes of data each day; eliciting actionable insights from that data can be time-consuming and costly.

Join experts from Bit Stew as we showcase how our MIx Core™ platform solves the data integration challenge across complex IT and OT environments to support today’s pipeline operations. Learn how you can transform your operations by injecting advanced analytics, access key strategies to properly utilize data analysis to mitigate risk, and maintain the integrity of the pipeline

What You’ll Learn

  • How to solve the data integration challenge across multiple data types such as time series, event, asset, and geospatial
  • Increase efficiency by creating and working with advanced data analysis templates to address specific use-cases and organizational needs
  • How to identify alarms relevant to your operations and new methods of issue resolution
  • Strategies focused on proactive versus reactive measures to handle real-time threats
