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.

The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.

This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.

As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

For IoT to grow as quickly as analyst firms’ project, a lot is going to fall on developers to quickly bring applications to market. But the lack of a standard development platform threatens to slow growth and make application development more time consuming and costly, much like we’ve seen in the mobile space.
