Though exploration data quality is improving, organizations continue to grapple with historical and duplicate information, collaboration in real time and the cost and complexity of data management solutions. The 2015 Exploration Information Management Survey identified ongoing challenges with respect to handling exploration data and how organizations are working to solve these issues.

The 2015 survey garnered almost 2,000 responses from 1328 organizations globally. 85% of respondents, regardless of their role or organization, rank data management as a critical or a top five issue for their exploration group. Organizations are becoming more confident about the quality of their data, but concerns remain about accessing and handling historical and duplicate data, and collaborating with others for the best results.
