Develop internal policies for comprehensive data architecture, quality control and security

Data quality, accuracy and integrity is central to effective data governance and driving informed decisions for mining companies. Inaccurate and unreliable data can lead to one costly mistake after another and creates a knock-on effect of inefficient mining processes. However, with the vast amounts of data being generated by sensors, equipment and operational systems, the management, housing and accessibility of this information is no easy feat for mine operators.

Safeguarding this data against breaches, unauthorized access, and cyberattacks is of equal importance. Meanwhile, compliance with data privacy regulations can also pose challenges, especially when operating in multiple jurisdictions with varying data protection laws.

With data often siloed across disparate systems and databases within an organization, integrating and managing this data efficiently can also be complex, as it requires interoperability between different systems and data standardization practices.

Key Client Challenges:

  1. How can we ensure data quality and integrity in our mining operations?
  2. How do we address data security and privacy challenges while maintaining data accessibility for authorized personnel?
  3. How can we comply with data privacy regulations, especially when operating in multiple jurisdictions?
  4. What are the key data governance roles needed within our organization?
  5. What are the latest technologies and tools available for implementing data governance in mining?
  6. What steps can we take to improve cross-functional collaboration and data sharing among different departments?
  7. What are the potential benefits and challenges of adopting cloud-based data storage and management solutions?

Implementing effective data governance often requires a cultural shift within an organization. Buy-in from employees and stakeholders in embracing new data governance practices is needed for them to be successful. Addressing these challenges requires a comprehensive data governance strategy, which considers people, processes, and technology.

At Unison Mining, our experts understand the challenges of data governance and will work alongside your team to address issues such as data ownership and accessibility. By clearly defining the roles and responsibilities of each employee and department with regards to data, inefficient siloes can be broken, data can be secured, and cross-department data sharing processes can be optimized.
