The new ISO 55000 series on Asset Management is asking more than ever before for establishing an integrating asset management system. This is involving information technology spanning the whole lifecycle of physical assets and addressing cost, risk, and performance. Additionally, we are living in a period of major and disruptive changes to technology, processes, and business models. Assets are getting smarter and smarter, allowing for machine-to-machine communication; boundaries between manufacturers, service providers, owners and operators are blurring more and more.
Dr. Achim Krueger, SAP AG, elaborated in his recent ASUG Webcast from September 16, 2013 on how SAP Enterprise Asset Management can help with the new challenges and also gain benefits from the new boundary conditions. This includes mobile, in-memory analytics, asset visualization, and other pieces of functionality.
