Director of Information
An interview with Eric Elliott, Director of Information Technology, OPTI Canada
BearingPoint took sometime to sit down with executives in a series of discussion to get their insights into information management. This conversation is with Eric Elliott, director of information technology for OPTI, a Canadian energy company. The company, with its partner Nexen Inc., has formed a joint venture to develop oil sands projects in the Athabasca region.
He joined the company in early 2007 to help strengthen IT governance and operational processes. Given the highly regulated nature of the oil and gas industry in Canada, Eric is particularly focused on the content and document management challenges the company must address to operate successfully in the country.
In the conversation he discusses the importance of implementing an effective information management strategy at a start-up organization operating in the highly regulated fossil fuels industry. Including specifics on a current information management project they are undertaking and leading practices in dealing with your partners on information management and what lies ahead.
