SAPPHIRE NOW 2019 was a great success for SAP Intelligent Asset Management and gave us a chance to share our showcases and get involved in lively customer discussions.
Digital Supply Chain President Hala Zeine, together with Bill Driegert, Director of Uber Freight, gave a speech entitled Design-to-Operate with a Future-Ready Digital Supply Chain. They outlined how the digitalization of the supply chain helps drive innovations, build new revenue streams and create reimagined business models.
In the Operate area, as part of the Design-to-Operate Showcase, we presented the SAP Intelligent Asset Management solutions with the EVOMIXX Mixer, a mixing machine that produces liquids based on individualized recipes.
Together with our partners Hilscher, E+H, Evoguard, IFM, Krones and Beckhoff, we presented an end-to-end process for Asset Management.

One of the highlights on the ASUG side of SAPPHIRE NOW 2019 was a presentation given by Dan Greenwood, Asset Management Consultant from CenterPoint Energy, entitled CenterPoint’s Insight-to-Action development with SAP Predictive Maintenance and Service. CenterPoint Energy is an electric and natural gas utility operating in 40 of the 50 states in the United States with over 7 million customers. After an introduction into SAP Predictive Maintenance and Service by Oliver Mainka, SAP Product Manager, Dan explained how they applied the solution to underground residential distribution (URD) equipment in order to shift an historically reactive asset and outage management approach to a more proactive, predictable, and efficient process for managing O&M and capital. He summarized by outlining the lessons learned, benefits gained and the outlook for the future with SAP Intelligent Asset Management.
“The presentation that CenterPoint (Dan Greenwood) gave to the ASUG audience was one of the highlights for me. The audience was very interested in CenterPoint’s experience with SAP Predictive Maintenance and Service’ and how they got started on the journey toward predictive maintenance. Dan really did a great job to bring out the value that CenterPoint is getting from the solution”. – Chris MacLuckie, Solution Manager, SAP Intelligent Asset Management
