Draga's Outlook for HxGN LIVE 2017

Hexagon Live 2017 - Location Reveal

GetSmart! Blog had the opportunity to interview Draga (Norway) executives about their past experiences and current expectations for HxGN LIVE; the 2017 user conference will be held in Las Vegas June 13-16.

GetSmart Blog: Could you tell us a little bit about yourself and your industry?
We’re Kent Andersen, CEO of Draga, and Tonia Pedersen, CTO. Draga has an extensive track record in intelligent data management and digitalization services for owner operators. 

What are your key reasons for attending HxGN LIVE? 
For us, the key reason to attend HxGN LIVE is to get in touch with Intergraph’s key product owners. We find it beneficial to gain detailed knowledge of any updates first hand so that we can share this knowledge with our clients. 

The HxGN LIVE conference also offers a great opportunity for us to give feedback and influence product owners from the user perspective. We offer lessons learned and best practices that are based on various implementation projects we’ve executed across the oil & gas and chemical industries.  

What are you mostly looking forward to during the conference?
Networking, knowledge sharing, and attending presentations. We are especially looking forward to attending the PP&M track.

Have you attended HxGN LIVE before?
Yes, we have attended four times over the last five years. The biggest benefits are definitely networking opportunities and the ability to learn about what other companies are doing. We need to stay up-to-date on the latest and greatest!
