IBM At IMARC: Digitisation & Collaboration Key To Sustainable Mining

IBM has declared the mining industry ready for a new chapter – from experimentation to true transformation – taking random acts of digital and applying speed and massive scale.

Addressing delegates at the 6th IMARC (International Mining and Resources Conference & Expo)conference in Melbourne, IBM’s Global Managing Director for Energy and Natural Resources, Manish Chawla said this new digital phase is critical to ushering in a new workforce, enhancing productivity and addressing the fact that “stock markets/investors/millennials still don't 'like' mining”.

“Miners have a critical role to play in addressing the awareness gap between the brand perception of mining and the value of mining, in particular for the younger generation who represent the future investors and workforce,” Mr Chawla said.
