Building Resiliency for Mining: Technology Priorities for Recovery
Published: June 24, 2020 Content info: 17 Pages

This IDC Perspective provides baseline guidance for resilience building within an organisation's digital transformation (DX) road map, including a selection of use cases that are essential for the current pandemic-stricken world. It also includes breaking the plan into time horizons to ensure that they are manageable and achievable."Being a cyclical industry, the mining sector regularly sees downturns that cast doubt over multiple operations. Although this can be somewhat predictable, events such as the global financial crisis (GFC) and now the COVID-19 pandemic can cause global chaos and upend the industry without warning. Imbuing an organisation's DX road map with resilience will help the company weather any crisis that it may find itself in," says Ben Kirkwood, senior research manager, IDC Worldwide Mining Insights.
