Gazprom Neft has won Russia’s most important IT competition, Global CIO. Gazprom Neft “Smart Data Lake”project was named “Project of the Year” by Russia’s IT-director community. The Gazprom Neft project, up against 220 projects from competition finalists, were recognised as the best in the “Analytical Solutions and Big Data”.
