Geospatial Asset Management with SAP and GIS

Optimize Your Business

Location and environmental attributes are crucial information for maintenance planning and execution on geographically distributed assets like pipelines, rail tracks, and high voltage cables.

Are you struggling with connecting location attributes to asset data?

Business Pressures

  • Difficult to effectively plan, schedule and sequence maintenance routes without spatial data
  • Mobile workforce lacks critical asset and spatial data to efficiently perform field work
  • Regulatory reporting is complex and time consuming due to disparate data
  • Increasing risk of having incomplete asset record information

System Challenges

  • Unsynchronized asset registries separately maintained in GIS and SAP
  • Dual maintenance of asset data performed in disconnected systems
  • Difficulty identifying a trusted source of truth (system of record) for data
  • Custom SAP-GIS interfaces are expensive, complex and difficult to maintain

Geospatial Asset Management Starts With a Business model

Embed geospatial and asset data in your asset management model to ensure asset uptime for service delivery and/or production purposes. By combining geographical, sensor, and asset data, the performance of an asset can be managed to prevent unplanned downtime. The graphic below shows how asset data types connect to ensure the performance of your assets.

Integrate GIS and SAP with Rizing Mercury

Rizing’s Mercury simplifies and accelerates SAP and GIS integration by synchronizing data between SAP plant maintenance and GIS like Esri and GE Smallworld.

Browser-based Field and Office Data Collection with Rizing OmniSpatial

Rizing’s OmniSpatial is a progressive web application for field and office data collection and maintenance workflows. The application works seamlessly with popular geospatial web services, including Esri map and feature services. OmniSpatial provides asset location for traditional map points, lines, and polygon modeled assets. It also allows data to be collected on linearly referenced features using Esri’s traditional linear referencing and Rrads and highways web services.
