Industrial customers reports difficultly to aggregate data to make actionable insights, managing the energy transition, deploying autonomous technology in a way that doesn't impact safety of employees.

$190 billion

Potential benefit of approximately $190 billion for the mining sector and $130 billion for the metals sector throught digitalization. The total for mining and metals is equivalent to 2.7% of industry revenue and 9% of industry profit.

610 million tonnes of CO2

Annually 30B$ duplication in innovation (in terms of IP) in the metals, mining, Oil & Gas sectors.

Mining industry has a similar value chain model as the energy industry and shares many of the same challenges, including how to manage operations in remote locations. We feel that the energy industry is further ahead in its digital transformation journey, and the solutions we have available can help accelerate innovation in mining as well as potentially in other B2B industries.
