Scope

This research service provides an analysis of ICT spend by the mining sector in South Africa. The objective of the study is to contextualize ICT investment within the sector across 8 categories: cellular connectivity, cloud services, data centres, fixed and non-cellular connectivity, IT hardware, managed services, systems integration, and sector-specific technologies. The analysis includes an overview of the mining sector, drivers and restraints, and technology trends driving investment in ICT, highlighting both the current and future spend from 2015 to 2019. The base year for analysis is 2014.
