IDC Survey: Moving Toward the Digital Mine — Deployment Trends in 3rd Platform and Innovator Accelerator Technologies
This IDC Survey presents key findings from IDC's 2017 Worldwide Mining Technology Decision Maker Survey, with a focus on how mining companies globally are deploying use cases across the 3rd Platform — cloud, mobility, analytics, and social — and the innovator accelerator technologies — IoT, 3D printing, security, AV/VR, IoT, and robotics — as mining companies move toward the digital mine. The survey was conducted across eight countries worldwide and asked more than 245 enterprise IT and business decision makers about their priorities and spending intentions.
"Mining companies are under pressure to deliver cost efficiencies through business simplification and operational excellence while delivering growth and maximizing production. An array of technology priorities is in place across most companies as particularly focused on enabling data within operations as mining operations move toward digital mining capabilities that enable flow of data across the enterprise enabling insight, control, and visibility," stated Emilie Ditton, associate vice president, IDC Energy Insights."
