A wave of transformation has hit the mining sector. Companies have shifted gears, placing a focus on the role that data and technology and how to innovate internally and with partners. The reality though is that much of the initiatives across the sector are still focused on smaller scale POCs and point solutions - the challenge that even leaders have is: How to scale so that the technology led transformation creates value at scale for the business. The answer lies in organisation, process, culture and as well as the way that data and technology is enabled. Mining companies want to create operations that are agile and resilient through creating increased insight, control and responsiveness across all time horizons and contexts. The end state will be self- healing, self-optimising and self-organising interconnected and integrated systems of systems.

In this webinar IDC Energy Insights will look at the focus that mining companies need to take to scale the value through the transformation. The webinar will include assessment of the elements of the developing agenda for transformation in mining, how much of it is real what is hype and noise. IDC will draw on engagement from across the sector and recently completed survey research looking at the way that use cases across the third platform - cloud, mobility, social and analytics - and IDC's innovation accelerators - robotics, cognitive processing/IA, natural interfaces, 3D printing, IoT, and security. We will look at the way that transformation is developing across the value chain of mining operations.

Key Takeaways:

  • The current state of the developing momentum for transformation in mining - some examples of priority initiatives of industry leaders
  • Direction of technology development based on IDC's recently completed 2017 WW Mining Survey

  • The direction of spending on technology and priorities for investment
  • Approaches across organization, culture and systems that will enable companies to scale the value
  • Success factors

Key Questions Answered:

  • What are the challenges mining companies have in incorporating and integrating new technology?
  • How are use cases for new technology in mining developing?
  • What are the priority DX use cases need to be?
  • What do the core elements of a holistic strategy need to be?
  • What approaches - across culture, organization and systems - are required to create scale and accelerate value creation from technology led transformation activities?
