How SAP S/4HANA can Transform Mining Industry Operations

April 8, 2021


Just like in every other industry, the future of mining is digital. Businesses in the mining industry need to deliver resources responsibly and efficiently to be truly successful.

With automated production, mining companies can achieve sustainable operations and simple end-to-end collaboration. With SAP solutions, mining companies can optimize growth, paving the road to intelligent operations.

When small to medium sized mining companies experience growth, their existing IT systems and mining software often become outdated, causing problems rather than innovation. To execute digital transformation, mining firms not only need to reengineer the business processes, but they also have to evaluate if they have the right technology to deliver that vision. This requires an IT architecture that provides both stability, long-term reliability and flexibility for growth and changes. Every business wants to maximize their investment in the cloud, and SAP S/4HANA provides limitless benefits to do so.

With SAP S/4HANA, businesses can:

  • Integrate as many components as needed
  • leverage mobile technology for enhanced productivity and collaboration
  • Improve operational processes by implementing company-wide best practices
  • Reduce mine and asset operational complexity
  • Use simple ad hoc reporting and analysis
  • Simplify invoice management, inventory, procurement, and finances
  • Reduce environment, health, and safety risks
  • Track resources from extraction, to production to supply chain
  • Recruit and retain employees globally
  • Simplify and enhance the customer and user experience

The opportunity exists to revamp legacy business processes to utilize the newest technologies in Big Data, IoT, analytics, and more. These technologies can lead to automated real-time planning, to total workforce management and more. According to SAP, customers who use SAP for their mining business can gain 10% increase in return on assets, 11% reduction in inventory for maintenance, repair and operations, and 16% reduction in unplanned downtime. SAP S/4HANA is the key to driving your business to new innovation and long-term success.
