With the ever-increasing advances in technology, our clients anticipate great things from digitalisation, data analytics and smart tools. Clients want to become ‘intelligent’, so we are increasingly finding ourselves in discussions about how best to achieve data- and insight-driven outperformance of financial and operational targets.
The volume of data accessible to our clients is potentially overwhelming. In addition, there are costs to capturing, storing and accessing each data set.
We are using powerful analytics, satellite technology and artificial intelligence to monitor millions of data points for combining new and historic data to analyse asset performance. This approach, combined with the flexibility to add new data systems, offers a holistic view of an entire asset base, which helps to prioritise investment requirements.
Technology alone is, however, insufficient. The most successful smart asset management and maintenance programmes blend human and technological excellence. Dynamic maintenance needs to be grounded in the deep institutional knowledge of an asset base that can only come from the people who design, build and operate it. Using our more than 100 years of engineering experience, we have developed a cost-effective, cloud-based suite of digital products that combines engineering expertise with data-driven insights.
Our products enable our clients to define the data that best support their business goals. Failure to achieve this previously has resulted in data gathering initiatives that cost more than the savings they were expected to yield.
Access to our technology platforms enables organisations to look across asset and data life cycles holistically, which offers considerably more potential to meet and sustain service levels at the optimum cost risk.
In an increasingly diverse and connected world, it makes little sense to go it alone. Through our digital performance intelligence ecosystem, we have created a place for our digital technology partners to work with us and that provides a connected suite of products and services designed to meet our clients’ needs.
