Meet Ebikpogba!  Ebikpogba became a member in January.  He reached out to @Amy Michalski with an interest in becoming a CIP.  Ebix (as we call him) joined me in the meet and greet the very next week after becoming a member.  His excitement and perseverance in becoming an AIIM member and CIP were admired by others that were on that call.  Thanks for being a willing vessel sharing your journey with us Ebix!  Please reach out and introduce yourself to Ebix here!

Ebikpogba Morowei
Operations Information Management Lead
Company: Petroleum Development Oman

Where do you live?  Muscat Oman

How long have you worked in information management? 18 Years

What does your work entail? Do you have company support? How are you helping drive the goals of your office through your work?

My job, in summary, is to ensure the company’s information (documents, drawings, and data) related to its Oil & Gas Production assets are up to date, easily retrievable, and flagged for review when necessary

What has been the biggest success in your career in information management? 

I have a few success stories in my career thus far, but I will say developing a standard operating procedure in managing production asset information in the company is one I will not forget in a hurry because I was given an award for this and it was the first of its kind in the company coupled with the fact that it was used in setting the requirements for the development of the company’s asset information management system (AIMS).

What’s your current biggest work challenge?

Change Management will top the list. Trying to make people understand why a change is needed and why a new system should be introduced has never been easy. After deploying the AIMS last year, we are still carrying out training, weekly engagements, and management reporting but there are still people who still struggle to accept the change and move on.

What does Intelligent Information Management mean to you?

It simply means managing information intelligently for better decision-making. Deploying the right skill set with a robust process, based on standards with adequate technology will ensure the management of the organization’s information.

What are the top 3 things you are looking to get from your AIIM membership? 

  1. Expert support
  2. Training
  3. Fellowship

What’s one thing you’re looking forward to in 2021? 
Am looking forward to more travels

What is your end goal and how do you think we can help you achieve it? 

My end goal is to get a Ph.D. in Information Management. With all the available training and support I think this will be of immense help when the time comes.

As an AIIM member, can you share how AIIM’s membership benefits helped you with your career?

As a member, I am confident and proud to be an Information Management Professional which gives me the respect I deserve at work. Also when I speak at meetings, people take me seriously which is a good thing.
