In an event held in the Administrative Center, the CEO of Pemex, Carlos Treviño Medina, said that the company undertook an extensive digital modernization plan that represents the most ambitious and large project of transformation of this type in Latin America, which will place it along with the big oil companies of the world.

He affirmed that the Internet of Things, Big Data and Advanced Analytics are tools that are already used in the company to compete successfully in the open market of hydrocarbons. The project, he said, will allow predictive failure analysis to reduce unscheduled stoppages and predict well behavior to improve exploitation.

Treviño Medina explained that the migration of 10 data centers to a hybrid cloud model is underway, and that Office 365 has been activated for 60 thousand Pemex users in recent months, which allowed for the adoption of the digital desktop, in addition to increased bandwidth capacity.

"Beyond the personal field, digital technologies are also of great importance in our business and we must take advantage of them to be more profitable and competitive with the world." Pemex Digital is a company-wide effort, in which everyone's participation will be the difference, "he said.

He highlighted the work developed by the DCTI to improve the digital strategy and strengthen cyber security, which has allowed to stop the cyber attacks that attempt to violate the company's systems.

For its part, the head of the DCTI, Rodrigo Becerra Mizuno, said that every company must undertake a digital transformation to avoid falling behind its competitors. Pemex, he said, has entered a new digital stage to be more profitable, increase production, reduce costs and increase security.

In the framework of the event, the general secretary of the Oil Union, Carlos Romero Deschamps, said that Pemex has been for decades the great pillar of economic stability, so it is obliged to incorporate all those practices and resources that make it possible to improve its efficiency and competitiveness.
