Mobilising people and information with high speed IT is extending the boundaries of Mining organisations beyond national and regional borders and across all lifecycle phases including pre-feasibility, planning, design, construction and operations.
By integrating mobility into day to day workflows, organisations are building channels to ensure up to date information is available for all tiers of management to underpin informed decisions. This is also called the Globalisation of Work which also resonates with generational change of a younger workforce who regularly use personal devices for business purposes. Smart phone technology also enables the proliferation of culture across large organisations through the digitisation of work.
The innovative use of mobile computers, GPS, and accessing corporate information with spatial location is driving significant operational improvement, profitability and global competitiveness, despite tightening of budget in resources sectors.
The investment in technologies to connect and coordinate distributed people is producing significant financial rewards for all stakeholders as demonstrated recently by BHP and Rio Tinto who investigate the best performers and communicate innovation to other departments.
