About the talk
The impact of the megatrend digitalization has been visible for over two decades, now. Paperless offices and real-time communication around the globe are common, rather than exotic concepts. These obvious developments have accelerated processes through all industries sharply and millions of people are profiting from them on a daily basis.
Such general improvements of documentation and communication are applied in mining, from their very beginning. Of course there are shortcomings in terms of connectivity and data transmission in many areas and especially in underground applications. When evaluating the status and progress through different industries, a disparity in digital capability and degree of digitalization becomes obvious. The most oppositional situation can be visualized when comparing the software or IT industry with the digital state of mining. Despite the fact that this comparison is not entirely proportionate, as one is the inventor of digital applications and the other one of the oldest industries in the world, it allows us to gaze into the future of digitalization in heavy industry.
Evaluating the developments of digitalization and IIoT in other industries indicates application scenarios for digital solutions in mining. The pace of adapting future technologies becomes an increasingly crucial factor for the sustainability and competitiveness of businesses in all industries. Digitalization will further be accelerated by recent global developments. The corona virus forces us to re-evaluate how we are doing business and how activities and information can be further aligned and monitored, around the globe. See what is possible when data is sourced consistently and put to work. Adapting new technologies comes with vast opportunities, but also with change management and some with uncertainties. While many see digitalization as a challenge to their processes and operations, talpasolutions turns it into an advantage.
Annex presenter is from a company called Health Solutions. His name is mocha from any more about telfa solution side with his colleagues earlier today. And it's it's very interesting photos of the chiefs house. Also with the group The Technology Group in this bison gem Mazda science degree from the well-nigh Knockin on University and spent the last six years investigating industrial digitization and database improvements in mining operations. The table Solutions off of digitization for surface and underground mining operations and lukos presentation on how they said change
the world and then morning about some of the aspects around turning operational challenges into opportunities. So handle diving team, okay. Yes, thanks a lot for the introduction and they're pleased to be here in two things to all listeners and us and I just got the opportunity to share my screen and I will try to do so to not only give a presentation but also start with the web d-mo afterwards. So I assume that you are seeing my presentation right now and I would just try to jump right in my focus in this presentation is not exclusively to show you
the potentials of digital applications in mining. But also where the development of software and digital application is actually going We Know by the number of causes discussed but they are quite a lot of studies which suggests that the down times of
