Smart mining

The mining sector has undergone seismic disruptions in the form of supply chain interruptions, production slowdowns, operational shutdowns and changing commodity prices. These have created immense financial and operational pressure within the sector, with extreme levels of uncertainty. Mining companies are looking for different ways of working to sustain themselves under the new constraints and challenges.

Issues you may be facing

  • Decreasing productivity.
  • Operating costs increasing and above inflation.
  • Pressure on social license to operate.
  • Increasing expectations and demands from government, regulators, unions, local communities and other stakeholders.
  • Disaggregated technology landscape: Different applications, systems, data warehouses, which results in no single version of truth and create the inability to make integrated business decisions.
  • Heightened safety and environmental risk increasing cost pressures, and media scrutiny.
