"Energy companies need solutions that help drive efficiencies to free up capital, time, and resources to invest in discovering new, more sustainable energy sources for the future. Data and digital technologies can help to navigate this transition, yet an IBM survey found that less than half of oil and gas executive respondents are using data to drive that innovation," IBM said in its November 23 statement.

"This is in part because most of the digitization efforts have been in proprietary closed systems, hindering the potential to combine and maximize the value of data," it said.

IBM said the collaboration between the company and AWS aims to accelerate the reduction of data barriers in the industry.
