Companies in the global energy supply chain strongly depend on situational awareness in daily operations. Today, they need to sense and respond to emerging situations more quickly than ever. However, their operations are spread across multiple business functions, devices, geographies and systems.

Implementing operations intelligence allows these companies to maximize the potential of their value chain by continuously monitoring and managing their global processes from a single platform.

This paper introduces the concept of operations intelligence and examines how it can help optimize energy supply chains. By gathering information and creating a real-time foundation for better business performance, operations intelligence solutions provide real-time monitoring and alerts to support interactive decision-making.

The paper also explains trends driving the need for operations intelligence, examines the benefits of implementing systems to support its practices, and explores common use cases.
