Technology roadmap

When technology is changing fast, strategic agility matters. Add a volatile market and miners may be justified in feeling uncertain about the future. Being able to rely on technology partners offers a welcome degree of certainty.

Maptek has recently defined a new roadmap which sets the direction for our individual product capabilities. This complements plans for how the products will be used and how we will leverage technology to create an integrated, connected and flexible technical work environment for users.

Maptek will be able to deliver huge gains in productivity, accuracy and quality across the whole mine planning and execution space. Workflows and data integration will be enabled throughout geological modelling, design, planning, execution and production management and reporting.

Access to a wider selection of data, including third party, will ultimately enable Maptek solutions to be connected in a service bus approach to an event driven operational environment.

Our roadmap defines where we see opportunities to leverage technologies and how we intend to deliver these to our customers.

The Maptek roadmap also summarises the major development and research projects planned in all solution areas to ensure that all of our products remain at the forefront of capability for miners.

User efficiency and productivity will soar. Mines will gain a focal point for technical analysis and operational planning and execution. Multi-disciplinary workflows and product functionality will combine to work on one common data model. Connections across event horizons to execution stages and enterprise and resource planning levels will allow miners to manage operations holistically.

The single source of mining truth will finally be a reality, becoming a valuable and strategic component of integrated mine performance.
