Mincom Pty Ltd was a software and services company providing business software to industries such as mining, public infrastructure, defense, oil and gas in more than 40 countries across North America, South America, Australia, South East Asia, Africa, and Europe.

Mincom Inc. operates in North America and is a subsidiary of Mincom Pty Ltd. Mincom employs 1250 people in 24 offices across six continents.

Mincom was owned by Francisco Partners, a global private equity firm focused exclusively on investments in technology and technology-enabled services businesses. On May 9, 2011 the ABB Group acquired Mincom to expand their enterprise software business, Ventyx.[3]

The company's name was originally devised as a contraction of the term "mining computing", as the company's initial products were aimed at the mining industry.[4]

North American operations are located in the United States (Denver, Colorado, San Francisco, California and Austin, Texas) and in Canada (Ottawa, Ontario).
