Asset intelligence | Bridging the gap between corporate strategy and operational reality


Published on

This presentation was delivered as a Masterclass by Paul Bennett, Relegen's Managing Director, at the Australian Mining Technology & Innovation Summit on 7 June 2102 in Perth, Western Australia.


Making decisions without trusted, real-world information is not an option for mining organisations in today’s globally competitive and regulatory environment. And yet, despite investment in corporate systems, most continue to take action based on problematic data – data that is incomplete or out of date. For some, this can result in breaches of security, safety or compliance, and for others, poor asset performance can lead to unplanned costs, lost productivity, and untapped opportunity. The challenge for mining executives across the board is to bridge the gap – the gap between data and assets, between corporate strategy and operational reality.

In this masterclass, Paul Bennett explores how asset intelligence technology helps organisations improve the quality of data in corporate information systems and drive performance in ways that outpace traditional approaches to asset management. In particular, this session examines:

• Rethinking what an asset is within in your organisation
• Uncovering the missing link between data and assets
• Evaluating the importance of identifying assets as globally unique
• Harnessing technology to transform legacy information into data you can trust
• Putting asset intelligence to work and using it to drive organisational performance.
