The Open Group has approved the Exploration and Mining (EM) Business Capability Reference Map produced by The Open Group Exploration, Mining, Metals and Minerals (EMMM) Forum. This standard is a component of the Exploration and Mining reference framework.

The EM Business Capability Reference map is a vendor-neutral model that includes the reference set of business capabilities for organisations that operate in the exploration and mining sectors. A business capability is the ability that a business uses to achieve a specific business outcome. It describes what a business is required to do to create value for its customers and stakeholders, and therefore supports strategic planning activities.

The Open Group governing board approved this new technical standard on 12 March. It is now available for free download from The Open Group’s publications catalogue at
