Engineering, rail, mining and construction companies are finding themselves in a complicated and evolving landscape where they are facing challenges such as skill and talent shortages, cost pressures and the need to invest in new technologies. In this environment of rapid change, “business as usual” activities are becoming more demanding, roles and responsibilities are changing and systems need to be kept up to date and relevant.

There is now a convergence – a movement toward integrating systems and enabling interoperability between information technology and operating technology.

As well as this, national energy policies, regulatory initiatives, environmental concerns, sustainability, new customer participation models and the drive for delivery infrastructure modernisation are all impacting an organisation’s business plans.

Most of CMC’s clients have developed strong learning and development cultures but there is still a drive to deliver projects efficiently and decrease time to achieve optimum performance whilst maintaining a focus on safety.

CMC works with our clients to review their business processes and systems to determine opportunities for improvement, areas where costs can be reduced and to identify any risks related to business processes or systems deployment. CMC has delivered strategic consulting, project management, data conversion, change and transition management and test management in the areas of strategic procurement, finance, asset management, business planning and consolidation, HR and payroll, learning and development and maintenance.

We engaged CMC to help us with our complex ERP implementation. CMC’s Program Manager was instrumental in developing our overarching plan and then pushing our management team to execute this with the necessary resource commitment
