IT services vendor Wipro has partnered with Ok Tedi Mining (OTML), a state-owned copper and gold mining company based in Papua New Guinea, to improve business processes using technologies.
The Bangalore-based Wipro said it extended its strategic partnership with the company to drive OTML’s transformation journey and achieve its Digital Mining Vision 2025.
Derrick Kelly, OTML General Manager Business Strategy and Support, said: “Our partnership with Wipro will allow us to focus on implementing mining best practices across our organization and increase the skill levels of the local workforce in PNG.”
OTML is establishing a new framework that embraces the role of technology, a new set of capabilities within the organization to use business best practices and systems, and streamline the organization’s operations across the entire value chain, eliminating waste and maximizing shareholder returns from the resources at its disposal.
Garry Tuckwell, global head of Wipro’s Natural Resources business, said: “We have worked with the executive and senior leadership team to help define the key strategic initiatives that will enable the company to realize its future vision and potential.”
As part of the partnership, OTML and Wipro have launched the Strongim Future Program – leveraging the SAP ERP application. The Strongim Future Program will utilize SAP best practices, replacing a number of legacy systems and putting in place the cornerstone for OTML’s future mode of operations.
