    February 2 - Ghost Barrels: Using SAP BusinessObjects Web Intelligence to Find $0 Oil (Customer Story)

    Hosted by: Reporting SIG of Business Intelligence Community

    Downtime affects production; but what is less understood, and certainly less quantifiable, is the more subtle reasons why wells don’t produce to maximum capacity. EP Energy (EPE) sought to unlock the hidden potential sitting out in the field by standardizing, capturing, and providing robust, dynamic analysis of these causes of production deferment. By creating intuitive analytics in SAP BusinessObjects, EPE has demonstrated measurable production gains without expending capital (aka the mythical $0 oil).

    Hosted by: Reporting SIG1trang.jpg

    Behind every design decision – color, font size, layout, shadow effect – is a rational thinking, rather than a rush of inspiration. So how do we build a professional-looking report or dashboard with the least effort?

The audience will gain a better understanding of a designer’s thinking process and learn practical visual design tips.
