Over 75% of survey respondents in the metals industry felt their companies had outdated technology or had outgrown their current systems. Learn more about how global metals companies are using Enterprise Technology to stay ahead of their competition, as well as:
-What business factors are driving companies to invest more in enterprise technology than ever before
-Why metals companies are investing in more cloud-based platforms

Advances in digital technology, and the falling prices thereof, are now offering miners and metal producers significant advantages when it comes to even the oldest production processes and the longest standing production challenges. More affordable and, crucially, smaller sensing equipment allows producers to retro-fit older equipment with the new sensing hardware, while more advanced software networks with total connectivity between various systems allows one to leverage existing automation and control systems to offer new ways of approaching asset lifecycle and maintenance, productivity, and energy optimisation.
