Big Data Prospects in Natural Resources & Extractive Industries Assessed in New Mind Commerce Study Published at

17 Jul 2014 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – The natural resources industry is positioning itself to use Big Data to the best advantage. This wealth of information is a relatively untapped asset that organisations in this vertical can make use of once they adopt a shift in thought pattern and apply the proper processes and methods.

In the natural resources domain, Big Data can be derived from traditional sources – maintenance records and equipment monitoring. Data from these sources is typically collected and used in accordance with requirements, but up to this day, it was not always preserved for long-term usage.  With the right infrastructure and tools, natural resources companies can gain measurable business value from all these data sources. As the quantity of sources, data quantity, and the reliability of data updates gain ground, so does the value of Big Data, too.
