Below is our recent interview with Lindsey Miller, Director of Marketing at DataCloud:

Q: Could you provide our readers with a brief introduction to DataCloud?

A: We are a digital solutions provider for the mining and metals industry. Our technology helps on-site teams exceed their production goals with real-time data and real-time analytics from geology insights to shift performance. By connecting teams to knowledge of rock properties prior to processing, and to how the rock behaved during processing, they can continuously optimize each stage of production upstream to get a better result downstream. Teams use our technology to make data-driven decisions that improves performance and safety, increases efficiency and production, and reduces unit costs and impact to the earth.

Q: Can you give us more insights into your technology solutions?

A: MinePortal, our SaaS, analyzes and integrates unprocessed and dispersed datasets across an operating mine giving companies a more holistic view of their operations; a digital twin of production. Our PowerBI application, FieldPortal, digitally captures operational data and integrates that data with a mine site’s workflow systems to speed up the reporting process. And RHINO, our IoT enabled sensor and edge computing device, can measure geology in real-time at an unprecedented resolution while drilling. Using all products together unlocks a deeper understanding of their orebody and identifies efficient ways to increase production based on that orebody.

Q: Who is your ideal client and why?

A: A mining company that is looking for a digital solution that will continuously improve their operations; a system that can grow with the company, rather than the company growing out of a system. Most of our clients are operating mines but we are starting to work with developing mines, so their digital ecosystem is set up for success prior to operating. More importantly, we’re interested in working with a company that wants to shift to data-driven decision making for their teams. And teams need to be ready to let cloud computing do their repetitive tasks for them so they can concentrate on the more cognitive tasks to get better results. Successful implementation is dependent on the workforce’s willingness to participate in a shift in their skills and focus in their responsibilities. Our ideal client is ready for this and supports their workforce to make this happen. We’re not interested in collecting dust on their shelf, we’re interested in large ROIs and progressing the industry.

Q: What’s the best thing about DataCloud that people might not know about?

A: The team behind the technology have an impressive array of expertise from geosciences to data enterprise managemet to machine learning and to mining engineering. We collaborate to create digital solutions that solve industry issues across the digital data landscape; collecting, management, analyzation, and collaboration. We are all passionate about progressing mining alongside mining corporations and mine site teams, for the better of the industry as a whole.

Q: What can we expect from DataCloud in the next 12 months?

A: We will continue developing ways for a more rapid adoption of data-driven decision making to benefit mining companies. Since each company has many mine sites, once our solution is active and the new normal for one mine the company will be able to adopt the technology to other mines smoothly and see the results quickly. With a proven track record and the best customer reference there is (your sister mine site), the whole company will be able to reach larger digitization goals and increase shareholder value.
