Digital Transformation Worth its Weight in Gold

Lessons from a Canadian mining company's innovation journey

On Demand

In early 2017, when Joe AbiDaoud took over as Vice President of Information Technology at Canadian-based gold producer Yamana Gold, the organization wasn't taking advantage of new technologies and was spending too much on its IT infrastructure. The IT department was functioning as a service provider.

Today, Yamana Gold can quickly and cost-effectively scale to respond to market conditions, is an early adopter of blockchain technology to track the responsible gold supply chain from mine to vault, has started taking advantage of new cloud-based technologies and considers its IT department a key player.

How did such dramatic changes happen so quickly? On Wednesday, September 26, join IT World Canada CIO Jim Love, Yamana Gold Vice President of Information Technology Joe AbiDaoud, and Senior Systems Engineer Thomas Henson of Dell EMC for the webinar Digital Transformation Worth its Weight in Gold.

The session will involve discussions around:

  • Transitioning IT from service provider to innovator and key strategist.
  • Mining the IoT, including practical tips on technology adoption.
  • Communicating innovation to C-level, and making innovation a day-to-day focus.
  • Managing the shift from passive to active innovation.
  • Establishing guidelines around considering and pursuing innovation opportunities.
