Mining technology provider Eclipse Mining Technologies has announced the launch of SourceOne, its flagship product.
SourceOne features a collaborative platform to connect data from different sources as well as a datahub to store historical and contextual data, making it suitable for analytics and use of advanced technology like artificial intelligence and machine learning.
The solution is the first integrative vendor-agnostic platform for the mining industry.
“Current offerings in the market consist mostly of isolated point solutions from a variety of providers, platforms that integrate data only from their own product line, or large, monolithic and inflexible systems, with tools that don’t necessarily talk to each other,” Fred Banfield, Eclipse’s chairman, said in a release.
“We want to deliver a central source of data, regardless of choice of application, to provide the ability to create systemic workflows, meaningful analytics and facilitate the adoption of advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning” added Rudy Moctezuma, chief business development officer.
“SourceOne was built from the ground up and expressly designed for the mining industry. Having been providers of mine planning software for over 50 years, we are well familiar with the needs of the industry and how legacy systems hamper the access to new technology, becoming roadblocks to digital transformation” concluded Susan Wick, the company’s CEO.
“SourceOne empowers the mines to take advantage of advanced technology while extending the life of their existing solutions.”
