IT is part of everything we do
The challenge facing the energy industry in the coming decades is considerable. To respond, we have to keep innovating at high speed, and deliver high-quality and cost-effective solutions. IT specialists have been very important to our industry for a long time, and now they are key enablers of our operations.
IT focuses on smart solutions along the entire value chain, working with the best and brightest companies to harvest the maximum value from Shell’s assets. In production, oil and gas fields are monitored remotely in real time and in our manufacturing complexes our Smart Mobile Worker programme is helping to increase safety, and to enhance collaboration at an operational level. We also provide competitive IT solutions that add value to our customers having created an in-house “App factory”.
In fact, whenever we talk about big successes in Shell – exploration successes or big increases in production – they are all supported by state-of-the-art software. IT is ingrained into all core business of Shell, and is here to stay.
