Integrated asset management

The deployment of next generation asset performance tools is moving forward on a global scale. Some utilities have installed enterprise-wide asset management systems, while others are experimenting with staged projects, testing the technology. Others are taking a conservative approach, watching and studying for now. In the meantime, IoT, cloud-computing and big data technologies are being included in advanced asset managing platforms, bringing added capabilities. The era of technologically augmented asset decision making is here.
