Digital Maturity Questionnaire - O&G | Energy Industry

You can consider the organization you are currently working for or one that you've worked for in the past. Dimension I : Operations and Processes

A. How would you rate the degree of digitalization of your firm’s overall value chain? 3: Complete digitalization – Efficient, reliable and integrated use of state-of-the-art smart technologies along the value chain. (e.g. AI-driven autonomous operations, well-established cloud computing capabilities leveraging operational data etc.) 2: Partial digitalization - Hybrid use of digital, physical and human capabilities to create value within the firm. (e.g. combined use of human and computer-powered interpretations of exploration data, partial use of ERP management systems to integrate parts of the business etc.) 1: No digitalization – Non-existent use of smart technologies throughout the value chain. Traditional and archaic operating models are prominent.

B. How would you rate the extent to which you have a real-time overview of your operations (upstream, midstream and downstream operations)? 3: Virtual Factory – Real-time operational overview with automated capabilities, which allows for a dynamic reaction to unplanned changes and downtimes. 2: Partial – Only fragmented insights into operational status with the need for human interventions to further process real-time data. 1: Non-existent – No real-time insights into operations status.

C. How would you rate the technical agility of your firm’s operations and processes? 3: Agile – Cohesive corporate culture, operating models and smart technologies - the firm’s overall agile practices adapt strategically to new technologies. 2: Ad hoc – Multiple local agile cultures combined with digitally driven initiatives. Yet, not fully aligned with the firm’s overall vision and strategy. 1: Chaotic – Non-cohesive culture in combining new technologies and organizational agility principles and practices.

Dimension II : IT Infrastructure

A. To what extent is your firm’s IT infrastructure able to meet your business requirements? 3: Expectations are always met – Highly accessible infrastructure with no downtime, able to react dynamically to new and changing business requirements. 2: Expectations reasonably met – Fairly reliable infrastructure however, not always in line with business requirements. 1: Expectations fall regularly short – Business requirements and IT architecture design are misaligned: unreliable existing infrastructure with recurrent downtimes and inflexible processes failing to meet business expectations.

B. To what extent does your IT architecture address I4.0 roadmap requirements? 3: Completely – The current architecture considers all relevant requirements and is designed to incorporate future I4.0 roadmap specifications and needs. 2: Partially - The current architecture considers to some extent I4.0 requirements but is only partially adaptable to future I4.0 roadmap requirements. 1: Not at all – The current architecture is neither I4.0-friendly nor adaptable to developing requirements.

C. How would you rate the degree of interoperability and integration between your firm’s IT infrastructure and third parties’ as well as within your own organization? 3: Semantic interoperability – High level of interoperability between information systems, with highly codified, seamless and secure data exchange (Enterprise-wide & cross-enterprises). 2: Structural interoperability – In-house digital capabilities allow for an intermediate level of data exchange and communication across functions and enterprises. 1: Inadequate interoperability – No automated exchange of data or integration between IT systems (across functions and across enterprises).

Dimension III : Organization and culture

A. How would you rate the extent to which your leadership is knowledgeable of I4.0 requirements and involved in its roadmap implementation? 3: High – Executive and Senior management are fully aware of I4.0 requirements and importance, and are highly involved and supportive of I4.0 roadmap implementation. 2: Moderate – Executive and Senior management have a high degree of understanding of I4.0 requirements but I4.0 roadmap is not fully integrated to the overall corporate vision and strategy. 1: Low – Executive and Senior management have little understanding of I4.0 and are not involved in digital transformation efforts.

B. How would you rate the degree to which your firm institutionalizes collaboration on I4.0 topics with third parties? 3: Open collaboration – I4.0 innovation is fostered in collaboration with academia, tech suppliers and R&D centers. Open source models are extensively adopted and encouraged. 2: Partial collaboration - Hybrid teams work jointly and occasionally on few I4.0 topics. Critical topics are still mostly investigated internally. 1: No collaboration – I4.0 topics are perceived by the firm as highly confidential and data as highly proprietary with nonexistent collaboration with external partners. C. How would you qualify your organization’s I4.0 driven capabilities? 3: Mature – Experienced and well-trained taskforces are anchored in the organization, with clear responsibilities as to how to ensure I4.0 initiatives success. 2: Advanced – Leadership recognizes the importance of organizational upgrades to support I4.0 transition– I4.0 capabilities developmental roadmap is being built. 1: Limited – Lack of understanding of I4.0 requirements by the organization and confusion over responsibilities.
