EY Mining & Metals Webcast: How can Mining and Metals Ride the Digital Wave?
Relative digital immaturity across the mining and metals sectors means that current digital solutions often only address parts of the value chain. While mining companies have made some headway in using digital effectively to improve productivity, focusing on productivity alone is not enough to generate a competitive advantage. We believe that miners need to adopt an end-to-end progressive “wave” approach which can integrate different digital initiatives into a cohesive whole.
Join our panel of mining professionals for an interactive discussion on these topics:
- The greatest barrier to digital effectiveness - the digital disconnect
- The four components of the wave approach, including a focus on buying and selling approaches
- Future disruption of the sector
