Today’s asset-intensive operations face challenges from every angle: customer demands, relentless competitors, an aging workforce, supply chain disruptions, regulatory compliance and sustainability requirements. Yet with every challenge comes opportunity. ​​

We recently collaborated with guests from IDC, Samsung, Aquitas, Omnio and SRO to talk about what can be done now. Throughout five informative sessions, we discussed the three critical imperatives that require modernized enterprise asset management (EAM):

  • Why your ability to scale your asset data and processes is the best predictor of a successful operation.
  • How the trends driving mobile adoption underscore why it’s foundational for the next generation of technicians.
  • How the evolutions in EAM are leading to “doing well by doing good,” creating a healthier planet and a stronger organization.

About the webinars

Each webinar is available for replay:

  1. “Doing well by doing good”- why sustainable operations are good for everyone​

    It’s a thoughtful discussion with global research firm, IDC and IBM on the role of sustainability in asset-intensive operations. You’ll hear practical ways to contribute to your organization’s sustainability strategy, see real-world examples of those who are getting it right, and learn why sustainable practices aren’t just good for the earth, they’re good for the bottom line, too. ​

  2. Building a Resilient Operation Through Mobile Asset Management
    Join us as we discuss how mobility has evolved and cover the latest industry trends in terms of implementation of EAM mobile solutions. We will also talk about IBM Maximo Mobile, a revolutionary and easy-to-deploy mobile platform that provides technicians with the ability to manage any assets, anytime, any place.

  3. Quickly scale your asset monitoring and predictive maintenance strategy with unified data
    To implement remote monitoring solutions at scale, all your relevant devices and data needs to be integrated. This can be a daunting challenge since device fleets are often legacy and highly diverse. Mapping and unifying data as part of the integration process can be cost and time prohibitive. To make this process faster and easier, IBM has partnered with Omnio, an industry leader in connecting operational technology (OT) to IT systems andunifying the data for use in a wide range of IoT and Industry 4.0 initiatives, including predictive maintenance and asset health.

  4. Scaling asset management systems in disconnected environments
    Data flow between disparate sites and moving platforms poses a challenge for complex industrial businesses. How can you run your business when your teams question the data, or spend time chasing it. Join this fireside chat session to hear how to enable your asset management system in poorly connected environments with a replication tool (SRO Data Replication) in the context of the use cases from across all seven continents and seas (including Antarctica). Tackle the issues associated with replicating information over low bandwidth and high latency environments. ​

  5. Journey to Predict: Understanding the Love Languages of an IoT Implementation
    IoT still has much distance to cover in being widely accepted as an industry standard asset management practice. In many cases, the challenge in launching these implementation projects is getting all the decisions makers on the same page to progress forward effectively. Aligning corporate strategy with maintenance department level objectives requires understanding of the different “love languages” involved.

After the webinars: see how enterprise asset management (EAM) can boost your operations

After listening to these webinars, you can learn more about enterprise asset management and how you can modernize your operation. Our assets are getting smarter and more connected. That means the way we manage them must evolve, too. There’s where enterprise asset management (EAM) comes in. It’s the combination of software, systems and services used to maintain and control operational assets and equipment. Discover how EAM optimizes the quality and utilization of assets throughout their lifecycle, increase productive uptime and reduce operational costs. Explore EAM.
