Congratulations to Metallurgical Systems for their digital twin solution for the mining sector. 

Metallurgical Systems was chosen at last night’s awards ceremony by our panel of industry leading judges. Their entry and pitch was a true demonstration of what being a One Percenter is all about.

That is, driving incredible change in business and society using IBM solutions.

A bright future 

Metallurgical Systems has won $30,000 in marketing funds to help further grow their solution to market. They will also gain invaluable exposure through local and global networking opportunities, as well as support from Tech Data, IBM, Red Hat and Thales along the way. 

We can’t wait to see what lies ahead for our other fabulous finalists, too. Advent One, kompozition and Silverfern IT all presented very impressive pitches to the judges and no doubt have exciting futures ahead of them.

Metallurgical Systems’ process digital twin solution pioneers a new era of accountability, sustainability and efficiency for mining, minerals and metals companies around the world.

As John Vagenas, Managing Director of Metallurgical Systems, said,

“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.”


 “The goal of the One Percenters program is to uncover the people and businesses who think outside the square and ask those important ‘what if’ questions. This year’s winner: Metallurgical Systems – demonstrated outstanding technology integration in its digital twin solution focussed on accelerating mining digital transformation and enabling sustainability.

Across our finalists – Advent One, Kompozition and Silverfern, we also saw tremendous submissions that were centred upon business outcomes including an amazing automation and performance optimisation solution, an outstanding Modelled Based Systems Engineering Platform, and a brilliant Managed Detection & Response platform.

Given the high calibre of entries this year leveraging IBM, RedHat and Thales technologies, there is no doubt that the future of tech innovation in Australia is extremely bright. Congratulations and well done once again to all of the finalists!”  –  Ivan Hecimovic, Director, Tech Data Australia & New Zealand
