PowerBI digger production example using Eclipse

There are literally thousands of different types of reports you can extract from our mining production tracking system: Eclipse Miningware. This article is a brief demonstration of just one; a daily report for the diggers which worked in production "yesterday".

The example below is a "live" demonstration and pulls data for "yesterday's" production figures via the Eclipse Microsoft SQL Server database, the Microsoft "on-premises" data gateway and Microsoft PowerBI.

You can interact with the live demo data which is similar to the type and volume of data recorded in a mine of one of our clients. Thousands of records are collected every day and are reported on the next morning, the aim of which is to improve productivity, identify bottlenecks and minimize downtime.

Your business doesn't have to be involved in moving dirt to benefit from our Microsoft PowerBI services. Use our data engineering skills to help turn your information into knowledge.
