Sword is delighted to announce the appointment of Jared Owen to lead our Digital Services to the Energy Sector. Jared joins Sword’s growing team concentrating on our digital consulting, project, and managed services portfolio. He will provide focus in this area to our customers in Oil and Gas and Renewables, driving the business outcomes they need through the adoption of transformative technologies and approaches.
Sword’s Digital Services target real-world business challenges. Our success is built upon our existing IT and data capability and over 30-years’ experience in the subsurface, production, engineering, and corporate domains. We believe in close collaboration with our customers to make practical recommendations for change, using common toolkits to develop long-lasting and repeatable solutions. We understand how to get the most out of modern workplace and cloud enabled technologies and have developed unique blueprints for applying these in our industry. Sword is committed to demonstrating value quickly and making a real difference from day one.
Jared has been heavily engaged in the North-East of Scotland’s digital sector and energy industry’s digitalisation drive in recent years. He was a leader and co-sponsor of the first UKCS Data and Digital Maturity survey in 2020, as well as the architect of the 2021 EnergyTech programme, a partnership between Opportunity North East, Barclays Eagle Labs, and Codebase, driving cultural change in the energy industry and creating a digital innovation bridge between the digital and energy sectors.
Dave Bruce, CEO at Sword UK, says: “We are proud of our position as an energy industry market leader for business technology solutions. By bringing Jared into our team and with the creation of our focused digital practice for energy, we are committed to supporting the industry through its transition, to leading data driven digital outcomes that open new opportunities through technology, and to maximising the efficiency of our customers.”
Jared says: “I am excited to join Sword at this critical time for the energy industry. I have been fortunate to see first-hand the capability, support, and collaboration the North-East digital sector has provided over the years and Sword is a major influencing factor in that. For me, digital adoption and maturity are broken down into the three inter-linked pillars of data, platforms, and systems of intelligence and Sword really understands that. It’s critical to the continued success of the industry that our digital solutions are built on strong data foundations and few companies can compare to Sword’s end to end capability and scale.”
