Join host Rory Bamford in this episode of Mining Now as he interviews Nick Ponto, Associate Partner in Energy and Mining at IBM Consulting. They dive into the complexities of modern mining operations and how IBM is working towards the ambitious goal of integrating and optimizing the entire mining process.
Nick discusses the challenge of bringing together various systems in mining operations and emphasizes IBM’s role as a system integrator. While a complete global design may still be an aspirational goal, Nick highlights the importance of enabling different vendor solutions to communicate effectively, leveraging IBM’s expertise to bridge these technological gaps.
Nick also explains the process of implementing comprehensive solutions in mining, emphasizing the importance of starting somewhere and building incrementally. He likens it to planting a seed and nurturing its growth, stressing the need for a clear strategy and consistent execution to successfully harness the benefits of digital transformation in the mining industry.
