Middle East and North Africa IT spending is projected to reach $155bn in 2018, a 3.4% increase from 2017, according to the latest forecast by Gartner.

Digitalisation is well underway but confusion about ambition, limitations in investment and leadership cultural challenges put transformation efforts at risk. CIOs must secure stronger roles in leading digitalisation efforts to overcome these barriers.

Simon Cushing is research director in the energy and utilities team of Gartner, focused on the upstream oil and gas industry. Cushing has more than 28 years’ international oil and gas experience in IT consulting, operations management, business development and leadership.

Cushing joined Gartner from a firm specialising in data and information management, upstream modelling and production management technologies where he ran the professional services organisation and the solutions group providing strategy consulting.

Having begun his career offshore with Schlumberger, Cushing worked in geophysical surveying before joining Halliburton where he held consulting, operational management and business development roles. He has specialised in the application of digital and information management technologies to business performance.

As a consultant, Cushing has advised oil and gas companies of all types across the asset life cycle in areas including data and information management, enterprise architecture, upstream interpretation and modelling technology, and digital oil field technologies.
