A meaningful combination of digital technologies
Across all territories and industrial sectors, forward-thinking companies are applying digital technologies to drive exceptional efficiency gains and enable new business models to promote growth. For these businesses, their transformational power springs from the ability to combine digital technologies to create more effective services, products and operations. This is the crux of Accenture’s Industry X.0 ideology.
Crucially, Industry X.0 businesses have grasped that it’s not enough to digitize one part of their organization and expect positive results across the enterprise. Instead, they embrace change and apply the right combinations of digital technologies continuously in all areas—thereby empowering themselves to reinvent their operating models, production and value chains to deliver meaningful worker and customer experiences, profitably, and at speed and scale.
Leading with digital in oil and gas
Let’s zero in on the energy industries. How successfully are oil & gas companies realizing the opportunities of advanced digital technologies? The jury’s out. Our recent research study shows that one in two energy executives admit they’re struggling to combine rapidly evolving technologies effectively. Pressed to name the other challenges their Industry X.0 initiatives face, they point to the lack of culture of experimentation in their organizations, and insufficient data security and trust.
Put simply, their efforts to capitalize fully on digital technologies are coming up against an organizational brick wall. What they need is to find the keys to successful technology adoption.
Successful uptake of new technologies
By consulting with world-leading technology adoption experts, and combining the outputs with proprietary surveys and industry reports, we’ve identified five value-triggers that drive the successful take-up of each new technology. And we've used these insights to create a Digital Dividends Diagnostic tool that enables companies to consider individual technologies in the context of the five triggers.
What are the five value triggers?
- Talent readiness
- Capital adequacy
- Ecosystem maturity
- Adoption intensity
- Value potential
Emerging technologies to watch
By evaluating various technologies through the lens of these value triggers, our Digital Dividends Diagnostic tool has pinpointed five technologies that can change the game for oil & gas companies seeking to harness the power of Industry X.0:

The message from our research is clear. For any oil & gas company seeking to realize the potential of Industry X.0, a thorough analysis of the value-triggers for digital technologies is the critical first step. Fail to do this, and you’ll fail to capture the full value on offer.
The choice is yours. In our view, it’s an easy one to make.
