IDC FutureScape: Worldwide Mining 2019 Predictions
This IDC study contains the outlook of IDC Energy Insights' analyst team for the worldwide mining industry for 2019–2023. The outlook is presented through the lens of the 10 predictions that make up, in IDC Energy Insights' view, the framework for IT and line-of-business (LOB) decision makers and influencers' technology-related initiatives in the year ahead.
"In 2017, the mining sector was understanding DX; in 2018, it happened. Digital-led transformation is now on the agenda for mining companies across the industry. However, challenges still remain in bringing together traditionally siloed functions. Mining companies must tackle the need for consistent, company-level strategy and direction and be clear about what that strategy setting tells them about how their business needs to be operated, measured, and organised. Without this focus, companies will not be in a position to take advantage of the potential value that digitally transforming presents," says Emilie Ditton, associate VP, IDC Energy Insights.
