Metallurgical Systems has picked up the 2022 One Percenters award for their process digital twin software for the mining and metals sector.
Currently in its second year, One Percenters is a joint initiative of Tech Data and IBM. With support from vendor alliance partners Red Hat and Thales, the program recognises technology teams who are solving complex problems and driving incredible change using products from the IBM software portfolio.
The announcement was made at an awards ceremony on 10 November at the IBM offices in Sydney, after a three month selection and evaluation process. This year’s program was open to both existing and new IBM business partners who are building with IBM Software, or re-selling IBM technology and platforms.
“Metallurgical Systems is one of the most innovative and future-focused Australian business you’ve never heard of,” says John Vagenas, Managing Director of Metallurgical Systems. “We are absolutely thrilled with this recognition, especially from the likes of Tech Data, IBM, Red Hat and Thales”.
“We had some stiff competition from the other finalists – Advent One, Kompozition and Silverfern IT, which makes this even more meaningful.”
“Our process digital twin software is pioneering a new era of accountability, sustainability and efficiency for mining, minerals and metals (MMM) companies around the world. We’re very proud to be helping organisations address critical challenges such as the demand for critical minerals, the energy crisis, climate targets and the ongoing skills shortage in mining. This award is a fantastic recognition of our innovation in this area,” he says.
“We are committed to driving greater productivity, helping organisations meet their ESG targets, and attracting the next generation of talented young workers to the sector,” he adds.
For John, this award is recognition of the crucial role that data is now playing in the mining and minerals sector worldwide.
“I am very grateful for our customers, who have been leaders in adopting process digital twin technology, as well as for our outstanding team of metallurgists, engineers and technical specialists. We have devoted over 12 years and 400,000 hours of development to our software, so it’s wonderful to see it add so much value to our customers and to the industry,” says John.
