Technology Solutions for Mining and Natural Resources
Mining presents a variety of challenges. Fluctuating commodity prices, environmental considerations, site planning and significant asset management requirements. While this presents clear management issues, it also presents a great opportunity for those who leverage technology to create a competitive advantage. Advancements in automation, Internet of Things (IoT), analytics and more have greatly improved efficiency and reduced risk – both financial and operational.
ICT Lifecycle Solutions and Services that Empower
NTT DATA Business Solutions leverages strong local expertise in mining and natural resources, as well as the global resources of one of the largest IT groups in the world to deliver the best solutions to our customers. Our investment in innovation through research & development (R&D) ensures we are at the forefront of technology, allowing us to provide integrated solutions and services to our clients.
Enterprise Asset Management (EAM)
Asset management plays a key role in the world’s most asset intensive organisations. But it’s not only the largest organisations that can benefit from the best practice and innovation developed. Packaged solutions are available for mining, with the benefits of defined scope, rapid deployment, and faster value realisation.
Big Data & Analytics
As demand for real-time reporting and visibility increase, so do costs. Company data continues to grow, and the variety of data sources increases.It’s not just the volume and variety of data, but the speed of accumulation and variable quality. All of these issues create strategic performance problems – decisions are made without the ability to access and analyse the right data at the right time.
Developing this advanced analytics capability is no longer an option, it has become an absolute necessity for business today. Different thinking is required about how to configure and use existing technology investments for advanced analytics (such as predictive modelling and machine learning) in your environment.
Safety and Technology
Leveraging the global innovation of the NTT Group, developments in sensors and wearable technology is creating new solutions for mining. The applications of these innovations create a safer environment for workers. For example, the 'hitoe" fabric-based wearable technology facilitates stable measurement of biomedical signals, allowing you to keep track of worker's health and intervene early if problems arise.
Sensors data including location, g-force, vibration, light, orientation, temperature and more provides an opportunity to leverage IoT solutions for mining. This clearly carries benefits for safety and asset management, but also extends to preventative maintenance and other applications.
