Publisher's Summary

Information technology (IT) is an integral part of our everyday lives. It keeps businesses running, provides a data superhighway, simplifies file storage, entertains us, and keeps people around the world in touch through social networks and cellular phones. In Big Oil and the IT Industry, Dr. Byron K. Wallace explores ways that IT innovation is valuable and helpful for many companies, including those in the petroleum industry.

He reveals how information technology:

  • Developed throughout history.
  • Affects and can benefit businesses.
  • Can be incorporated into business structures.
  • Could merge with petroleum companies to create the digital oil field of the future.

By sharing stories, statistics, historical facts, and his vast knowledge of the industry, Dr. Wallace will take you on an informative journey into the world of IT, its place in petroleum production, and its global future.
