VIDEO: Mining tech will transform the way resource companies do business

In this video, Ian Dover, General Manager Industry Implementation at METS Ignited, talks tech. But more importantly, how tech can transform the business processes that drive mining and resources companies.

Ian says in the past technology has addressed only point solutions in the mining industry - however the time is ripe to look holistically at what those point solutions can do when combined as part of a wider analysis and implementation. He says by integrating these solutions, mining companies can transform the way they operate and help safeguard themselves from losses in productivity.

The research and innovation within the sector will shift focus, Ian says, towards analysing big data sets and applying the insights to make operations not just more efficient but marginally safer, taking humans away from the “dirty, dull and dangerous situations”.

The opportunity to innovate is huge, and the sector is calling out for it.
