Join Austmine and Salesforce for an exclusive conversation about digital transformation with Craig Walker, former chief information officer (CIO) of Shell.
With 30+ years of global business experience, Craig understands the modern challenges of a CIO.
He will explore the impact of digital innovation in the mining industry and how it is transforming the way organisations operate, reflecting on how he unlocked efficiency, gained productivity and minimised risk on a global scale.
Craig will also explore the opportunity to mine your data, providing insights into how to extract value and operationalise your data properly, to avoid leaving value on the table.
