A new report has revealed some of the top tech companies in the mining industry are actively developing mining software.
According to the Mining Industry Software Alliance, more than half of the software development teams for mining companies have been incorporated into one of the three largest mining software companies, Deepwater Horizon in the United States.
The alliance has compiled the information into a “virtual report” which was compiled in partnership with software developers who are now working to create a new virtual report for mining software developers.
According the report, the software companies in Australia and New Zealand have invested $5.5 billion in software development over the last three years and have a combined software development workforce of more than 6,000.
The report says that Australia and the United Kingdom have been the biggest contributors of software development and the countries have been growing rapidly in the number of software developers and jobs created.
“The growth in software technology, the emergence of cloud computing, and the increasing sophistication of mining technology have increased the demand for software development talent,” the report states.
“Many of the largest companies in mining, mining operations and mining software are now developing software for mining applications.”
This report provides industry insights and industry analysis into the companies that are developing the software they need to develop mining software applications for a wide range of applications including mining hardware, mining equipment, and mining infrastructure.
“The mining industry is also looking to hire a number of new talent and developers to fill roles that will be created by the industry in the coming years.”
There is increasing demand for new software developers across many different industries, and we are now looking to add more of this talent in the software engineering and development areas,” the association says.”
We are currently looking to recruit software developers in mining software to support our growing workforce, particularly for mining engineering roles.
