This IDC Tech Buyer Presentation highlights our recently published mining digital transformation (DX) use case taxonomy.
As an organizing principle for our digital transformation research, IDC has created a DX use case taxonomy for multiple industry segments.
The taxonomy follows a hierarchical structure that begins with the digital mission, the strategic priorities that support that mission, the programs that will be initiated to satisfy the priorities, and the funded projects or use cases that will be implemented under those programs. The taxonomy not only forms the basis for our market forecasts but also provides the framework for digital journey maps that will assist our clients in understanding the full scope of enterprise efforts.
"Digital transformation is no longer a question for mining companies. Mining companies are now firmly moving toward creating more agile, resilient, efficient technology–enabled mining operations. The agenda has moved from why this should be done to how. The challenge companies are now facing is how to scale existing small and midscale investments that can deliver significant value to the business," says Emilie Ditton, associate vice president, IDC Energy Insights.
This IDC Tech Buyer Presentation is most effective when reviewed in concert with IDC's Worldwide Digital Transformation Use Case Taxonomy, 2019: Mining (IDC #AP45121319, June 2019).
