Joe, this is a fascinating time for these industriies, indeed! Interesting to watch, of course, given the critical nature of the products these industries deliver -- both at a personal level but from the broader eco perspective. How much does the drive for analytics marry to the push for greener operations, I wonder.

It sounds like the oil/gas and utilities industry is in an akward situation. Having the gun go off and saying "ready, set, go!" and still standing at the start line.  They know they need, they want it but not sure how. 

So it seems they need outside help.  SAS has presented at the SPE Digital Energy Conference back in April 2011 on how oil companies can more accuratley forcast well performance. IBM and Shell are using analytics to find more gas and oil.  Oil companies shouldn't hesitate to utilize the expertise of these companies.
