Lean in our DNA – Right Sizing the Business Through a Tough Climate – The Aera Energy Story

At Aera Energy in California, Lean isn’t a process or a philosophy, it lives deep in the culture. This reconnection to who they are has seen Aera thrive through a tough 24-month period for the industry, and at the forefront is its President and CEO, Christina Sistrunk. At $100 oil, volume was the buzz word, profitability a given. At $30 oil, a reframing to maximum value per barrel is what’s asked of everyone. Christina has challenged her teams and will challenge the audience to cross the gap to potential and be ruthlessly grounded in reality, taking personal ownership over ‘their business.’

An Economic Outlook of the Energy Sector

Horace’s presentation will be an economic and market update that will highlight several aspects which influence the global energy landscape. Horace will touch on global macroeconomic indicators, global energy trends, shifting global growth, the U.S. economic environment, and U.S. energy trends. He will also dive deeper into the energy sector by discussing the fundamentals of supply and demand, gasoline demand drivers, and changes in consumer behavior and buying trends, such as electric vehicle market penetration. The presentation will conclude with the shifting outlook for global energy consumption, and the global environment of resource abundance and what this all means for players in the global energy supply chain.

CIO Panel: The Digital Turning Point of the Oil and Gas Industry

Digital Technology has become a transformation driver in the Oil & Gas industry. After an experimental phase to identify the potential of new technologies, the industry is now ready to re-imagine their business models, business processes, and how people work. Peter Maier will discuss with CIOs what digital transformation means for their organizations and what business outcomes they are driving for. Facilitated by Peter Maier - General Manager, Energy& Natural Resources Industries, SAP SE

Together at the Turning Point: The Time to Act is Now

There is little debate the Oil and Gas industry has been challenged over the last couple of years. Now that we are in the “new normal”, there is an urgency for the Digital Energy Revolution to provide the agility and scale needed to win in this environment, and SAP S/4HANA is the digital core that enables it. In this keynote, you will learn about the collaboration SAP has had within its user communities and partners to make this digital transformation journey safer, faster, and clearer than ever before. You will hear about SAP’s digital energy network cloud strategy and how SAP is responding to customer feedback to make it easier to leverage SAP S/4HANA to transform and help automate your business. You will see the Digital Transformation Navigator that helps identify what is needed for your digital transformation. You will hear about the S/4HANA O&G Adoption Program (SOAP) that is designed to help you migrate with industry-specific service packages. You will learn about the SAP Model Company that will identify how you can get the most value out of the transition with industry best practices. And lastly, you’ll hear about how other customers have already started their digital journey through SAP’s Customer Engagement Initiatives. You will leave this session with not only the vision of how the digital energy network will transform business models, processes, and ways of working, but you will also leave with practical next steps to safely navigate this journey.
