Even for an industry that manages difficult environments well, the pace of change in global energy is creating some substantive challenges for chemicals and petroleum companies. These organisations seek ways to act quickly and with confidence in a business landscape that continues to grow more complex by the day. IBM believes that cloud computing technologies are particularly well-suited for organisations that seek to build a proactive approach to meeting the challenges of this dynamic new age.
This paper provides a view of cloud computing for the chemicals and petroleum industry and describes the technologies and functions that can help them improve efficiency, reduce costs and enable new capabilities. Guidance is provided to help you determine which applications, services and technologies should be considered for development and deployment "in the cloud" to meet the goals of your extended enterprise.
