After a few years of online conferences, it’s no wonder that so many people attended the recent MainstrEAM conference held in Melbourne, Australia.

It was good to get out and network with colleagues and friends from the Asset Management community. As I interacted with others from the industry, one thing became clear: Asset management technology and practices evolved during lockup.

Changes Force New Thinking

Recent changes forced on organisations have emphasized the importance of intelligent technologies to streamline and automate asset management decision-making.

Asset Performance Management

(L) SAP’s Jonathan Wilson and Brian Williams and (R) Rizing’s Noel Fagan present to the attendees.

Customers are excited that SAP’s Intelligent Asset Management suite now includes Asset Performance Management and the ability to support, monitor, predict, and prevent breakdowns.

Rizing EAM CEO Noel Fagan presented on this topic, outlining industry trends and available predictive asset management and performance solutions.

Look to the Future

Along with SAP and our partner Teamviewer, we brought the concept of augmented reality and Realware glasses to support connected, intuitive, and hands-free field-based asset management.

TeamViewer xAssist – Remote Support with Augmented Reality.

There is a logical connection between the Team Viewer Remote assistance capability using smart glasses and SAP-based field work management tools.

Imagine a world where fieldworkers have all the information needed to perform a complex inspection task right in their line of vision, connected to remote support, safely working with free hands and free. It’s a giant leap for safety and efficiency in asset management.

But Don’t Neglect the Basics

We talked with customers about getting back to basics and making the most of their existing SAP tools. Whether it’s:

  • Usage assessment
  • Training
  • Reconfiguration
  • Promoting system adoption

We often help customers find additional value from the SAP installation they already own.

Field Access

We also discussed how Rizing’s SAP-supported Hydrogen solution could help make work management information accessible to field crews who can’t carry laptops or printed forms to complete their tasks.

We were happy to show customers how simply adding Hydrogen can reduce the need for paper, increase the value of their SAP system, and improve decision-making with better asset and work data and history.
