Latize wins data deal for NSW mine safety

The Division of Resources and Energy of the Department of Industry (DRE) has become the first NSW Government customer of Singaporean company Latize.

This follows DRE going to market to find a way of addressing data mining for use in mine safety, environmental, licensing, royalties and reporting compliance analysis.

Latize’s software approach to big data management, named Ulysses, utilises semantic processing and linked data to provide insights that would otherwise be unseen in organisational data. The software has been accredited by the InfoComm Media Development Authority in Singapore.

DRE’s goal is to ensure the safe and sustainable development of NSW mineral and energy resources for the benefit of all NSW citizens.

The partnership was made possible via one of Latize’s local partners, Small Multiples, which operates in the area of data visualisation. Small Multiples and Latize will work together to implement the Ulysses solution to address initial requirements, as well as creating a platform for further innovative data management projects within the division.

The initial work will focus on mine safety and at later stages will involve integration with several other systems within DRE.
