Data capture & ML consulting services to map out the way to a custom

A well-established mining group, from South Africa acquired a sizable business asset from a large British mining group.

With new business opportunities, came new business challenges. The older system from the acquired entity belonged to an old legacy era, with most applications being custom developed on open source. With no effective governance in place, technology licensing & updating had a big process gap.

Processing System

Step1: Define the problem:

Differentiate fact from opinion.
Specify underlying causes.
Consult each faction involved for information.
State the problem specifically.
Identify what standard or expectation is violated.
Determine in which process the problem lies.
Avoid trying to solve the problem without data.

Step2: Generate solutions:

Postpone evaluating alternatives initially
Include all involved individuals in the generating of alternatives
Specify alternatives consistent with organizational goals
Specify short- and long-term alternatives
Brainstorm on others’ ideas
Seek alternatives that may solve the problem.

Step3: Evaluate:

Evaluate alternative relative to a target standard
Evaluate all alternatives without bias
Evaluate alternatives relative to established goals
Evaluate both proven and possible outcomes
State the selected alternative explicitly.

Step4: Implement:

Plan and implement a pilot test of the chosen alternative
Gather feedback from all affected parties
Seek acceptance or consensus by all those affected
Establish ongoing measures and monitoring
Evaluate long-term results based on a final solution.

Our Approach

DataGridz was engaged via. HCL South Africa to undertake an in-depth systems and process audit towards gaps assessment and mitigate them. A version migration was carried out around more than 152 mining applications, backed by proper log management. Disaster recovery audit were successful, after proper secured controls were implemented. A proper process was documented around best practices to be adopted.
Drastic improvement on process front, helped to do a proper strategy implementation around new technology adoption. This leading to a sizable positive impact on business front.
