A booming Natural Resources industry in Australia is facing common problems in bridging gaps between their Process Control Assets and Enterprise Management Systems and reducing complexity by increasing end to end automation.
This session provides insights in how to stand up an IT landscape for a Major Capital Project (MCP) in both LNG and Mining industries.
The brief coverage of the industry domain and high level processes involved is followed by identification of the common IT challenges of an MCP. We demonstrate how to address these challenges by providing comprehensive enterprise architecture models and layers and mapping those to the suitable set of technologies and solutions that can be readily instantiated.
-- Understanding of the Natural Resources Industry, Major Capital projects (MCPs) and associated IT Challenges.
-- Approach to developing reference models and architectures in those industry domains.
-- Leveraging proven technologies and COTS solutions in those domains.
