IDC Energy Insights: Agile Mining Operations

By: Emilie DittonAVP, IDC Energy Insights

On-line Presentation


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.

"Mining companies are firmly moving toward creating more agile, efficient technology–enabled mining operations. Investments are being made; the challenge is the process change, change management, and integration required to deliver the value promised by those investments," 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, 2018: Mining (IDC #US43515518, July 2018).
