The IDC Futurescape: Worldwide Mining 2017 Predictions provides mining companies with the top 10 predictions and underlying drivers that we expect to impact mining companies' IT investments in 2017 and beyond. Technology leaders and their counterparts in the line-of-business (LOB) operations can use this study to guide their IT strategic planning efforts. Key themes woven into our worldwide mining top 10 predictions for 2017 include the need for digital transformation (DX), new ways of innovating, more integrated IT and operational technology (OT), business security, and rethinking the future of work. While the predictions offered here largely focus on the near term to midterm (2017–2020), the impact of many of these predictions will be felt for years to come. Most of our predictions refer to a continuum of change within the wider ecosystem of the mining industry and global economy.
