As companies prioritise remote and autonomous operations, advanced analytics applications provide the operational insights, modelling, and data-sharing capabilities to help get there, says Morgan Bowling, Industry Principal, Seeq, USA.

But making sense of dispersed operations requires synthesising and contextualising information from several sources.

As companies increasingly adopt Software as a Service (SaaS) technologies in the cloud, the accessibility and connectivity to data continues to increase. And these technologies play a significant role in helping organisations connect all of their data, create insights, and improve operational decision-making. By leveraging these efficiencies, along with lessons learned from distributed working environments during the pandemic, companies are continuing to progress toward remote operations.

While autonomous operations are the ultimate goal for many organisations, remote operations powered by digital solutions are a key steppingstone toward success. Companies are leveraging SaaS technologies, such as self-service advanced analytics solutions, to drive a cultural change across the industry by enabling remote ROCs to perform crucial monitoring activities, for example, exception-based surveillance at scale to optimise site resources on the highest priority issues.
