On Tuesday 24 October, BG&E Resources (BGER) co-hosted an event with Oracle discussing the trends and developments in information management in today’s rapidly evolving digital landscape.
More than 50 attendees – document controllers and information management professionals – joined us at BGER’s Atrium Office in Perth, representing organisations in the Construction, Engineering, Manufacturing, Mining, Resources and Medical sectors.
After an introductory networking session over morning tea, two of BGER’s leaders took to the stage. Steve Ash, Technical Director, opened the event while Morgan Davis, HSEQ Manager, delivered the safety briefing and set the vision for an industrywide information management working group.
Morgan says, “The role of document control is rapidly evolving in our industry, due in part to advancements in technology and shifts in the business landscape.
“With a room-full of information management professionals keen to learn how to adapt – the event was a resounding success.”
Matt Jenkins, Master Principal Sales Consultant at Oracle Construction & Engineering, delivered the technical component of the session, showcasing the benefits of using Oracle Aconex to manage projects end-to-end on one platform. He also touched on how industry-leading AI generative tools are being used to elevate productivity.
The Q&A session which was lead by Rob Musca, Account Executive from Oracle, was lively, with many attendees sharing common roadblocks and barriers to managing information across the project life cycle.
Sixian Yip, Lead Document Controller at BGER, closed the event by highlighting her career journey – from graphic design to document control.
She says, “Being an introvert, this event was a great platform for me to step outside my comfort zone and share my story in front of like-minded industry professionals.”
“The event was exceptionally well-received with participants expressing their appreciation for the insightful speakers and productive networking opportunity, which is something that has been lacking in the industry.”
