Syntax launches Mining and Natural Resources Center of Excellence

Syntax, a multi-cloud and mission-critical applications managed cloud provider, has announced the launch of its global Mining and Natural Resources Center of Excellence (COE).

The COE will be led in conjunction with Illumiti, a Syntax company, which brings more than 20 years of experience delivering global, SAP-based solutions to more than 40 mining customers.

It is designed to bring experts within the organisation together to develop, build, and implement leading edge, holistic minerals and metals mining solutions.

“This COE allows us to bring together all of our expertise, across lines of business and geographies, to provide holistic solutions that drive cutting-edge innovation for our clients,” Christian Primeau, Global CEO at Syntax, said. “I’m proud of our transformative work as trusted advisors in supporting businesses focused on strategic and on-shore critical resources worldwide, and I look forward to the acceleration of this impact with today’s announcement.”

The announcement follows the recent launch of Syntax’s global Industry Centers of Excellence. These centres reflect Syntax and Illumiti’s  knowledge base and capabilities in four key industry segments, including Manufacturing, Engineering, Construction and Operations, Mining and Natural Resources and Professional Services.

Nigel Shuffler, Global Head of the Mining & Natural Resources Practice at Syntax, said: “With the demand for natural resources continuing to grow in today’s rapidly evolving economy, it’s essential for mining and natural resource companies to have reliable, sustainable and safe operations to meet customer and market expectations. With our SAP-certified S/4HANA template, and specialised technical support for mission-critical operations tailored to the mining industry, we are able to reduce implementation times and costs as we prepare customers to navigate the future of this industry.”

Syntax and Illumiti, a Syntax company, are recognised as leading systems integrators for pragmatic, robust and quick time-to-value SAP ERP solutions with SAP-certified mining templates, business-centric mobile apps and a comprehensive reporting toolset, the companies say.
