This IDC PlanScape presents a digital transformation (DX) framework that enables mining companies to extract the greatest value possible from their enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems. This document identifies a range of adjacent systems across the mining value chain, which should be integrated to share data with each other. This will ultimately provide mining operations with the holistic insights required for optimal decision making.
“Integrating the insights gleaned from the wide range of operational platforms used throughout a mining operation with the organisation’s ERP is critical when looking to create the greatest value. This is due to the improved ability to interpret and utilise knowledge from across the mining value chain to create the greatest impact,” says Ben Kirkwood, senior research manager, worldwide mining, IDC Energy Insights.
