The GIM Channel 27: Harnessing the power of data

In the latest episode of The GIM Channel, Asmita Mahanta Manager Technical Services and Data Integration at BHP joins acQuire’s Business Development Manager, Stephen Alpers, to discuss the power of harnessing data across the mining value chain.

It’s important to have the most relevant data to build a story. At the end of the day, you’re going to use that data to tell a story, be it for your project or understand your model. And so, as we tell the story, when we see the gaps in the story, that will often lead us to get all the data we actually need to fill the gaps in our story.” – Asmita Mahanta, BHP

We discuss:

  • Realising the potential of data across the entire mining value chain
  • How can companies determine whether they are collecting and using the right amount of data?
  • Key ingredients that companies need to think about when managing data effectively
  • How the size of the dataset is often associated with the size of the problem we are trying to solve
  • Future challenges of harnessing the power of data

“In order to fully harness the power of data, we need to be able to define the requirement of the data, we need to be able to understand the quality, and then we need to be able to bring everybody together to collaborate, and then present the solution.” — Asmita Mahanta, BHP
