Capitalising on big data and analytics for improved operationsc

  • Enhancing shareholder value, changing the way businesses operate and compete, and obtaining real-time insight into consumers, risks, profit, performance, and productivity management are all core elements of big data and analytics, a digital enterprise capability from Advisian, WorleyParsons global advisory business.
  • Mohamed Madhi, Managing Director of Advisian SSA, says that the companys big data and analytics capability provides more certainty to clients than ever before by tapping into every possible source of data available.
  • Madhi says that it will prove highly beneficial particularly to the power generation sector where data such as billing and usage information, and digital technology such as smart meters, allows better understanding of load patterns to optimise operations.
  • As smart and connected equipment becomes the norm and new sensor-based features become available, adapting technology infrastructure becomes critical for success, and this is where big data and the associated analytics are key to providing a competitive advantage, says Madhi.
  • Drawing on WorleyParsons global capabilities and resources, the big data and analytics capability was developed by Advisians global digital enterprise business line and offers large-scale data analysis to optimise future projects, and allows WorleyParsons to deliver and execute projects in a highly efficient way.

Will AI Board Members Run the Companies of the Future?

  • BRINK spoke with Mr. Van Rijmenam about how AI will reshape the boardrooms of the future.
  • Mark van Rijmenam: Yes, especially because AI will be better able to understand the context of an environment of an organization.
  • Mr. Van Rijmenam: AI will have difficulty making these kinds of decisions in the coming years.
  • Mr. Van Rijmenam: There is a company in Hong Kong, which I think in early 2014 introduced an algorithm that takes into account many more data sources than us humans can and, based on that, makes a decision about whether or not the organization should invest in a certain company….
  • Mr. Van Rijmenam: In the course of my research, Ive interviewed roughly 20 organizations who have built AI.
