For mining companies today, the problem is not the lack of data, it is the lack of a means to make sense of it. Advancements in enterprise performance management systems can provide leadership teams and management staff with greater insight into organizational performance; and can improve the accuracy of forecasting by centralizing data to drive higher performance and make better decisions. The goal is to create the next generation of business processes that connect all aspects of the mine to corporate strategy, including planning, execution and analytics.
