Asset Management & IoT

Visibility, Control, and Automation for Your Assets, Devices, and Smart Objects

The volume, complexity, and interconnected nature of devices, data, and assets continues to grow as the Internet of Things (IoT) expands in both the industrial and consumer markets. It’s predicted that by 2020 there will be more than 50 billion smart objects in the world. These objects span various use cases, including wearables, automotive, smart cities, smart manufacturing, healthcare, and building automation.

Our expertise in asset management, analytics, cloud, connectivity, enterprise planning, and mobile enables us to provide exceptional IoT solutions based on strategic assessments and roadmaps. We deliver the design, development, implementation, integration, and training necessary to help you succeed.

 

 

Connected Data & Services

Customers demand the ability to connect with any device, at any time, from any location. To meet these expectations, it’s essential to build an IoT strategy that addresses all key features of this new, connected architecture:

  • Connectivity applications and appliances for communication, processing, and notification of maintenance requirements from plant floor assets to finished products
  • Edge computing to extract data elements for analysis and transformation close to the source
  • Data management for storage, aggregation, and access
  • Analysis capabilities like reporting, analytics, and machine learning that provide visibility, control, and automation
  • IoT governance and device management

Our solutions leverage IBM Watson IoT and Bluemix to provide cloud-based services for connectivity, information management, analytics, and risk management. 

Asset Management and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)

Enterprise asset management (EAM) helps you gain near-real-time visibility into your most crucial assets. This information is imperative to ensure proper usage, extend the life, improve reliability, and get the best return on these critical assets. 

EAM encompasses all types of assets that are instrumental in delivering products and services at the level your customers expect, and requires continuous tracking, assessment, and management of a myriad of physical, technical, and human resources. We provide a complete, streamlined asset lifecycle and maintenance management solution on the IBM Maximo platform.

  • Health check and readiness assessments
  • Business case and ROI development
  • IBM Maximo implementations and upgrades, leveraging industry templates and mobile deployments where applicable
  • Program and project management
  • Application migration and support
  • Certified IBM education and training services
  • Skills and experience in implementing cloud-based, validated Maximo environments for customers in the life sciences industry

Predictive Maintenance and Quality

As assets grow in complexity and cost, companies require an efficient method of predicting, analyzing, and acting upon potential issues and asset failures. Predictive analytics solutions are essential to managing the lifecycle of an asset and the associated decision-making processing. 

Integrating asset and operational data with these analytics solutions provides the intelligence to streamline predictive maintenance and quality, and ultimately ensure that assets are running and performing properly. Our services and solutions are based on IBM’s Predictive Maintenance & Quality (PMQ) platform to help with real-time capabilities, Big Data, predictive analytics, business intelligence, open architecture, data integration, and process integration.
