Consulting and IT service provider Ajilon has won a deal to help mining company Roy Hill bolster its business analytics capability via a platform built on Microsoft Azure.

The deal has seen Ajilon provide a platform to enable users to access supply chain information, augmented with external data sources, to provide the mining company with real-time insights across their operations.

The platform can handle large volumes of data in real time, enabling data scientists and engineers to self-serve visualisation tools, develop predictive algorithms and combine disparate information sources to discover real value.

Using IoT technology, the platform can stream near real-time sensor data from the mobile assets to allow rapid process analysis and efficiencies.

Peter Hawkins, Ajilon national solution lead, says the company is ‘very proud’ of what it has delivered for Roy Hill.

“As with any cutting edge solution ,it was not all easy, but due to the collaborative nature of the partnership we have been able to deliver a fantastic outcome and a first in Australia,” Hawkins says.
