Managing assets in the modern era

Across almost every asset-intensive industry, from oil and gas, to sustainable energy, to manufacturing, to transportation, organisations are challenged with how to get the most value from assets across their entire lifecycle. If handled correctly, it can be the key to continued operations in times of reduced budgets. It can help extend the useful life of equipment, improve return on investment and defer new purchases.

There are many reasons for the increasing demand for better asset management. When organisations raise the importance, risk, quantity, and/or cost of their corporate critical or capital assets, they often see a corresponding rise in interest by management to better maintain control and visibility of all these assets. What’s more, in this new era of mobile, cloud, and analytics technologies, there are more opportunities than ever to collect, consolidate, and analyse information about assets to help fine-tune performance.

IBM Maximo Asset Management provides the essential capabilities for better managing your physical infrastructure assets. You can leverage Maximo to make better decisions around all aspects of asset management, and get the insights you need to deliver ongoing value for your organisation.
