300x100.jpgA laggard to adopt innovations from outside its industry, the oil and gas sector requires transformational solutions to address the prospect of tightened margins and wage inflations. The harnessing of digital technology in the industry will increase the potential to generate a number of opportunities for industry players, opening the door to exceptional growth and operational excellence. Companies looking to remain or become competitive in the oil and gas industry are welcome to attend Frost & Sullivan’s annual event, Growth, Innovation and Leadership (GIL): North America – Digital Disruption: Realizing Growth Potential, taking place September 17 to 20, 2017 at the Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort and Spa in Austin, TX.
