One thousand meters underground in South Africa a fleet of 30ton heavy mining machines drive around at 30km/h looking for diamonds. These machines are kitted with the most advanced sensor technology and analytical models in the mining industry to predict machine failure and ensures equipment is available, utilized and operating at maximum productivity and safety. Learn more about how Sandvik and IBM are deploying IoT and analytics to help mining companies mine smarter instead of harder. IBM and Sandvik have developed an unique partnership to ?disrupt the mining industry? and developed a solution ? OptiMine Analytics ? that increases the productivity and safety in underground mining. This presentation will focus on the business outcome, not the technical solution, and benefits for IBM and Sandvik. A testemony from IBM Vice President Global Business Development Industrial Products Anders Fredholm together with André Jakobs, Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology
