How small to medium Exploration & Mining companies can benefit from Hosted Data Management Services.
“Outsourcing our drilling and sampling data management
to maxgeo has been an extremely rewarding decision.”
Your Ultimate Hosted Data Management Service
In the technology world of today, there are countless opportunities to gain increased efficiency, competitive advantages, lowered operating costs and more. Yet, along with its advances, the tech space has also become increasingly complex. Weighing the pros and cons of increased utilisation of platforms such as cloud computing, addressing functions critical to business like managing exploration and / or mining data, makes things even more complicated.
Within this transforming and expanding environment, it is certainly challenging – if not impossible – for a small-to-medium company to wear the many hats it takes to run a successful exploration operation. For that reason, more organisations are choosing to outsource their data management.
maxgeo have developed a hosted data management service called WebShed, which provides companies the opportunity to outsource their data management and focus on core activities. The solution is hosted on our servers, utilising DataShed and LogChief software. Providing clients with 24/7 access to their data, and improved insights.

Data Management Outsourcing Trends
Exploration and Mining companies are increasingly looking to outsource their data management needs
- Outsourcing data management needs are growing
- A Stats Catcher study reveals that the outsourced data management industry is growing by an average of 23% each year.
In-house and onsite Database Administrators are becoming a more expensive option due to
- Software subscription and hardware
- Flights, accommodation, superannuation
- Backups and server maintenance.
Seamless data management is a compulsory component of any successful exploration or mining operation. It is challenging for an average exploration or production geologist to know how to tackle every problem a typical project face. Often data management specialists are required for specific instances in addition to day-to-day maintenance. Businesses will find themselves spending more on ineffective data management staff, or overall inefficient data management systems.
DataShed5 provides an intuitive service and innovative solution for displaying, interrogating and interpreting your exploration and mining data anywhere, anytime. In-house automation will allow you to gain access to your data in real time.
Month to month savings and increased efficiencies will only demonstrate that outsourcing data management needs make complete business sense.
