named a Cool Vendor in Gartner® Cool Vendors™ in Simulation for AI report

Gartner Nomination, a leading artificial intelligence (AI) software development company that delivers process-specific optimization applications for the mining & metals industry, announces that it has been named a Cool Vendor by Gartner.

According to the report, “the future of AI will be focused on building persistent environments where AI agents are trained, learn, and operate. They help to test hypotheses, understand relationships and improve predictions, generating major benefits”.

Delivering Decision Intelligence for the Mining Industry


The mining industry has seen a relentless drive to improve operational efficiency. In this fast-changing world, pre-defined decision models are often not appropriate or are unable to detect or predict factors within complex dynamic mineral processes. Achieving a competitive operational advantage requires miners to be constantly attentive to new technologies such as AI and Machine Learning. has built a purposeful decision intelligence platform for the mining industry with the goal of increasing net metal recovery from existing mining assets, optimizing smelting and refinery operations and recovering spent metals while reducing impurities.

Our real-time process optimization applications combine multiple AI techniques and methods. The platform leverages both machine learning and physics-informed AI models to analyze time series, spatial data, fleet management systems (FMS), and IoT-generated data relevant to operational targets and predefined mining KPIs.

The solution looks at complete decision flows while delivering operator predictions, recommendations, and decision support guidance, allowing the mine to operate at its optimum state at all times.



To us, this recognition further acknowledges the gap in Artificial Intelligence approaches when it comes to optimizing complex industrial processes like mining. We are delighted and honored to be named a Cool Vendor by Gartner, having the opportunity to innovate and bring AI applications that truly support the decision-making process and make mining operations more profitable and sustainable.

Mining the Future with You

In our view, this recognition further acknowledges the momentum we have seen among the mining industry and our enterprise customers. Artificial Intelligence technologies can rapidly help in digitalization strategies whereas mining companies need ‘to get the most from what they have’. In turn, this movement is required in order to fill the gap in mineral demand for the energy transition and also to optimize operational margins in today’s turbulent economic climate. operates exclusively in the mining & metals industry (in partnership with BASF and its chemistry process knowledge), and has been able to codify the domain knowledge from a data, process, know-how, and decision perspective. With our proven results within global mining majors,’s innovative approach is committed to meeting continuous improvements and ongoing positive operational results.

What Is a Gartner ‘Cool Vendor’?

“Gartner’s definition of a Cool Vendor is a company offering a technology or service that is innovative, impactful and/or intriguing.

  • Innovative: The vendor has developed technologies, products, services or business models that enable users to do things they couldn’t do before in ways that are materially different from other options in the market due to their unique or novel approach.
  • Impactful: The vendor offers technologies, products, services or business models that have or will have a transformative business impact that can transform markets. It’s not just “technology for the sake of technology.”

Intriguing: The vendor has caught Gartner’s interest/curiosity during the past 6 months. The vendor helps you to identify an upcoming trend.”
