Connecting mining companies to the best digital and technology solutions
According to Shell research, industrial customers report 80% of the same pain points. These include elements such as aggregating data to make actionable insights, working within siloed organizations, managing the energy transition and deploying autonomous technology in a way that doesn't impact safety of employees.
And while there is certainly optimism around the uptake of Industry 4.0, mining is an industry experiencing a number of challenges making it difficult to convert this intention into action. For example, depleting ore reserves and declining ore grades in existing operations mean that companies have to mine deeper to reach new deposits, which in turn increases costs. The industry is also facing a growing pressure to deliver in a more environmentally sustainable way.
To solve this, Shell and IBM have created Oren, the first B2B digital marketplace platform of leading digital and technical solutions essential to the mining industry.
