This IDC Tech Buyer Presentation explores the impact on the mining industry from COVID-19. Since the onset of travel restrictions, people have been struggling to get to and from their operations. This built on the uncertainty that is being seen throughout the economy is proving to present a multitude of challenges. With these in mind, IDC provides some solutions to aid in improving the resilience of mining organisations for them to both weather the storm and be better prepared for the next.
"As governments implement lockdowns around the globe, sites are beginning to scream out for workers," says Ben Kirkwood, senior research manager, worldwide mining, IDC's Energy Insights. "This combined with market uncertainty has led to the need for resiliency issues that can and should be implemented over a range of different time horizons," he adds.
