“We’ve seen value immediately. The world is talking about big data and how you use it.” — Sam Walsh, CEO, Rio Tinto, March 2014

(from PwC’s report Mine 2014: Realigning Expectations)

Converting Big Data into Actionable Intelligence for the Business

Mining companies investment into IT is due to multiply by 5 in the next 3 years and with every phase of a mining company’s value chain producing large amounts of data on a daily basis, big data analytics will certainly be a large part of this increase. A particular area of focus is real-time data acquisition and analytics in order to improve the day-to-day operations of a mining company.
