Asset Integrity Management
Moving to risk-based data-driven decision making for managing and replacing assets can be daunting without experienced guidance. Knowledge of utility assets, data, processes and technologies are critical to a successful journey for adoption and integration of asset analytics.
Asset Performance Management (APM) solutions are becoming more mainstream for T&D asset classes. As we learned from the early adopters, details and expertise matter, particularly with the analytics for asset risk and choosing the APM solution that fits your organization’s needs. We have the Business Integrator expertise that can help you navigate a solution implementation efficiently – from use cases to vendor selection and last but not least, adoption and change management.
