Resourceful thinking: a new direction for transactions, driven by technology 

Mining may not be universally renowned for its green credentials, but the sector’s reputation could be in line for a major makeover.
In this issue of Resourceful Thinking we discuss how technology and innovation are set to have a huge impact upon transactions over the next decade.  Author, Greg Evans, of KPMG in Australia, discusses how resource companies have some tough decisions to make about whether to outsource innovation and technology, or whether to own it as proprietary distinctive capabilities. If they choose the latter course, they will undoubtedly be on the search for suitable acquisition targets. As the mining industry becomes more reliant on technology, it might also attract potential new entrants from the technology sector itself, which could add a new layer of competition, as well as shaking up the transactions market.
