The fashion for digitisation is spreading across the Russian economy at incredible speed. Indeed, it is becoming the main economic idea of the government, a sort “magic wand” that can be used to ensure stable economic growth - and on a new technological basis too. The oil and gas sector is not an exception.
All leading companies constantly speak about their digitisation successes. At the same time, digitisation, unfortunately, spreads in a manner quite typical of Russia.
The government demands that everyone gets digitised - and everyone shouts “yes, sir!”, often without understanding what the term implies after all. Worse still, the government itself does not fully realise this. Even the purchase of a new computer may well be interpreted as digitisation in the broad sense of the word. Therefore, reports on digitisation are coming in from everywhere, but there is no general understanding of what the actual meaning of the concept is.
In the report the analyst attempts to explain what different Russian oil and gas companies really mean when they say “digitisation”; what corporate digitisation programmes can be reduced to indeed; and what actual progress has been made in this area.
In the new report you will find the following subjects:
- State regulation of digitisation in the oil and gas sector
- Deputy ministers in charge of digitisation in the government ministries concerned
