Unlike other core industries, such as retail or technology — where “data-driven” has been a buzzword for well over a decade — the mining sector faces steep institutional, structural, and technical challenges in the drive to modernize their data infrastructure. Critical geological data is frequently bound up in a layer of legacy applications that are 30, even 40 years old. Newer technologies, such as IoT sensors in trucks, ships, and rail, provide an abundance of valuable data but can complicate calculations around capacity, timing, and maintenance. With so many logistical problems to solve and hurdles to overcome, it can seem impossible to even know where to start building a better data infrastructure.
Fortunately, there is a solution. Though the mining industry has highly specialized needs when it comes to data, you can still benefit from modern data technology.
