Few industries are as rewarding, or as risky, as mining. But the clever application of technology can help organisations hit pay dirt sooner.
Chris Holmes, Brennan’s WA State Manager and Mining Advocate , digs deep into the convergence of IT and OT, how a technology strategy can speed up production outcomes, and why a cohesive tech ecosystem is the bedrock of efficiency.
