Bringing scale and adoption to Digital Transformation in Mining business
Despite the promise of Digital Technologies many Mining companies' efforts with it are falling short. Most companies have run ad-hoc pilots or are applying AI and Digital technologies to a single business process. Mining business leaders must take steps to break down cultural and organisation barriers for digital wave transformation to effectively capture value opportunities.
