  Baker Hughes CEO Martin Craighead says: “If a typical deep water well is like going to the moon, then the Gulf of Mexico ultra-deep water frontier is like going to Mars.”* Safely performing these kinds of complex and high risk operations requires many people to collaborate, share information and make informed decisions quickly.  When […]

“IT driven business transformation is always bound to fail” – Amber Storey, Sr Manager, Ernst & Young The value of Big Data driven Analytics is no longer in question both from a customer as well as an enterprise standpoint.

Growing up in the Silicon Valley, the daughter of a mechanical engineer, I always wanted to work in technology. However, I never quite managed to get myself exposed to a tech field until I’d already developed a complex about my abilities in the STEM fields.
