IBM Enterprise Asset Management for energy and utilities

The challenge

Many assets. Disparate systems.

Energy and utility companies are asset-intensive. And historically, utilities have managed their assets in silos. However, the emergence of the smart grid and smart meters, challenges of an aging workforce, and a demanding regulatory environment make it critical to standardize on one asset management platform. Now, with the IBM® Enterprise Asset Management solution for energy and utilities, that need transforms from possibility to reality.

By using an instrumented approach that includes digital sensors, advanced communication networks and sophisticated analytics, the IBM Enterprise Asset Management solution can help your enterprise understand asset condition, usage and allocation in near real time to more effectively manage resources and costs. The solution creates an interconnected value chain, linking utility participants at multiple levels from power plant to plug. It then enables the intelligent flow of information, which can be used to transform and optimize asset performance, worker productivity and supplier enablement.
