Using IBM® Envizi Sustainability Performance Management with IBM's broader AI-powered software, such as IBM Maximo® Application Suite, IBM Supply Chain Intelligence Suite, and IBM Environmental Intelligence Suite, can help enterprises automate the feedback generated between corporate environmental initiatives and the operational endpoints being used in daily business operations. This is a crucial step to move enterprises beyond reporting to performance, as it helps them share data for tracking purposes and identify assets where action can be taken to reduce future emissions. Envizi Sustainability Performance Management integrates with the following:

  • Maximo Application Suite asset management solutions that help extend the life of an organization's critical assets and reduce environmental impact by providing intelligent asset management, monitoring, predictive maintenance, and reliability in a single solution.
  • Supply Chain Intelligence Suite supply chain solutions that help gain supply chain visibility, cut waste by right-sizing inventory, reduce the carbon footprint of shipment and logistics, and ensure responsible sourcing with blockchain-based technology for traceability.
  • Environmental Intelligence Suite that helps increase resiliency by assessing and planning for the impact of environmental conditions on an organization's operations, assets, and supply chains. Environmental Intelligence Suite uses advanced AI and weather technology from IBM, the most accurate forecasting provider globally.

Statement of good security practices

Top rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through intrusion prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a regulatory compliant, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.

Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
