Companies Leverage SAP® EAM Solutions to Get Real Business Results

The Eventful Group announced today that hundreds of companies using SAP® solutions for EAM will gather at the ninth annual SAP-Centric EAM conference to share their success stories, discuss challenges, and exchange ideas. Through the comprehensive program layout, companies will pinpoint new and innovative ways to use SAP PM to get business results. SAP-Centric EAM is taking place March 3-6, 2013, at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort & Spa, CA.

“Built for the community, by the community, SAP-Centric EAM is North America’s most comprehensive and on-target program focused on SAP solutions for Enterprise Asset Management,” said Steve Sinkoff, managing director, Americas, The Eventful Group. “SAP EAM experts will share their experiences from hundreds of projects and SAP EAM implementations, so the community can learn about and avoid some of the challenges others have faced along the way.”

SAP-Centric EAM presenters share important take-aways from their keynote sessions at this year’s conference:

Achim Krüger, Vice President EAM Solutions, SAP AG

"Of course you can use your SAP system to support maintenance execution, but imagine how life could be if you used it for linking asset management to your business objectives."

Joseph Grobler, Global Operations Director, Reveal USA

"The future value opportunities for your business can be found in your data, make sure your data is accurate and reliable."

Harold Hambrose, CEO & Founder, Electronic Ink

“Our skyscrapers, office parks and plants aren’t filled with process flow diagrams. They are filled with people. Here is where innovation will be discovered.”

Robert (Bob) Williamson, CMRP, CPMM, MIAM, President, Strategic Work Systems, Inc.

"Why is it that we often struggle to improve the way our equipment and facilities run - faster, better, consistently? It should be a lot easier... and it can be easy. Reliability is more about the 'human factors' than it is about new technologies and tools."

Mark Foster, Industrial 3D Specialist, New Zealand Steel

"The visual plant can be likened to having a pair of X-ray vision goggles for your plant—enabling real world transparency of your assets while navigating through layers of digital asset information. "

Terry Wireman, Vice President & Acclaimed Author, Vesta Partners

“Unless organizations can remove the silos between their financial, engineering, operational, and maintenance organizations, they will never fully realize the benefits that they could achieve with asset management strategies.”

SAP-Centric EAM will feature thought-provoking presentations and case studies, organized in five tracks of content: master data, planning & scheduling, analytics, reporting & history, expert advice, and transition/sustainment/evolution, ASUG-led roundtables, deep-dive workshops, and a first-timer’s session. New to the program this year, the EAM Education Center will help drive and motivate the community to take advantage of new technologies and tools within the SAP ecosystem. In addition, the entire SAP EAM Solutions Team will be on-site to answer questions.

Online registration remains open through February 27, 2013.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...
