Chevron Corporation Analyst Notes
On April 22, 2014, Bloomberg reported that Chevron Products Company, a division of Chevron U.S.A. Inc., which is an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Chevron Corporation (Chevron), launched its new Chevron PitPack easy-dispense motor oil system that helps professional motor oil installers in increasing their efficiency to store and deliver oil to the customers. As per the article, the new PitPack system is capable of saving up to 89% landfill waste with the use of six-gallon plastic bags and recyclable corrugate boxes of motor oil instead of individual plastic quart bottles. This system reduces the time needed by a car in a service bay by dispensing motor oil quickly from the boxes via a High - flow, no drip tap, said the article. The Company claims that this solution will help professional installers in managing the complexity associated with the growing number of premium products (synthetics, synthetic blends, and high mileage).

Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
