  • IT Asset Management and Enterprise Asset Management practices reach across the enterprise. ITAM is no longer just a concern for IT and EAM is not just a concern for Operations. Asset Management is closely tied to financial management and affects groups such as Finance, Purchasing, Contracts, and Risk Management.
    In many organizations Asset and Financial Management is conducted in a siloed fashion with disparate systems that do not talk to each other. This prohibits data sharing and process optimization across the enterprise. IBM offers a single, unified solution for asset management and associated financial management, that enables organizations to manage all asset classes across the enterprise.
    IBM Asset and Financial Management Solutions help address the following business challenges:
    Visibility and Control: throughout the enterprise on asset management processes. Using a unified solution key stakeholders in the enterprise can share data and optimize asset management processes to maximize asset performance and profitability. This helps improve TCO and also increases Operational Efficiency
    Asset Convergence: lines of ownership blur in relation to IT-enabled assets. Is IT responsible for managing and maintaining these assets, or Operations, or both organizations? By using a unified solution for asset management these different groups can truly work together seamlessly. Enterprise Asset Management and IT Asset Management practices reach across the enterprise and affect key stakeholders everywhere. With lines of ownership between IT and Operations blurring, these asset management complexities must be done in one system.
    As you can see from this graphic, there are no walls between IT and OT. Although there are individual roles and responsibilities, a definite blurring between IT on the left and OT on the right exists. Therefore, there is an essential need to enable data sharing and process optimization across the enterprise.
  • There are many customers who have been using Maximo for some time to manage the strategic assets in their enterprise.
    1/ Great River Energy (GRE) started out using Maximo for managing the power generation aspects of their business until the CIO saw value in taking advantage of the Maximo skills they built up to put IT assets under the same umbrella
    2/ the State of Georgia is using Maximo for their facilities, vehicles and IT assets because of the visibility it gives them to metrics they need at the executive level. From a single application state officers can look across a large expanse of state operations for a roll-up of information relating to state assets, including asset condition, utilization and spend
    3/ DTE has made a substantial investment in Maximo, including specific industry solutions for managing nuclear and T&D (transmission & distribution) operations and fleet vehicles. They are making good progress in eliminating over 80 different applications and consolidating them onto Maximo.
    4/ Dalarna, a county in Sweden, initially bought Maximo for IT asset management and then expanded their implementation to include their IT service desk. They also use Maximo to track maintenance of hospitals and health centers, medical equipment and their fleets of emergency vehicles.

    21. 21. © 2012 IBM Corporation21 Business Process Automation
    22. 22. © 2012 IBM Corporation22 Business Process Automation Companies are more and more focusing on Asset Management as a response to significant market pressures: – Need to Maximize Return on Assets (RoA) – Risk of Failure of Critical Assets – Complexity of Operations – High Energy Costs – Regulatory Compliance – Aging/Retiring Workforce In order to address these pressures, Best-in-Class companies are more likely to standardize asset maintenance and reliability processes across the enterprise.
    23. 23. © 2012 IBM Corporation23 Business Process Automation Checklist More Than Just Workflow  Design a process for any document/record – Typical - Work Orders, Purchase Orders – Also required - Job Plans, Assets, Items, Contracts, Transactions, etc.  Drive the document/record through multiple states via manual and automated tasks – Define next step in process, who is responsible, what they need to do, and how long they have to do it – Provide means to automate steps and activities along the way, making the overall process more efficient • Manage more than just “State” but any data attribute associated with the document/record – For manual steps, provide user assistance  Model real-world business processes which are: – Non-linear, non-sequential – Multi-person • Multiple assignees to a step • Multi-level – Variable • Requires potentially complex logic and branching
    24. 24. © 2012 IBM Corporation24 Business Process Automation Checklist, cont. More Than Just Workflow  Monitor defined processes in order to improve – Identify and address bottlenecks • Define escalation points to alleviate – Pinpoint waste • Report on unnecessary steps (rubber-stamp situations)  Define, monitor and manage to business commitments – Translate business level goals and objectives into explicit time-based targets for individual activities – Establish overall levels of service (Availability, Reliability, Responsiveness, etc.) aligned to business objectives – Monitor granular activity-level and summarized service-level performance and proactively respond according to predefined rules  Provide visibility into performance of processes – Establish meaningful Key Performance Indicators that directly correspond to business goals and are actionable
    25. 25. © 2012 IBM Corporation25 Business Process Automation  Workflow and monitor any Maximo object – Escalate • Monitor and escalate any condition – Route • Process workflow • Multi-level approvals – Interact • Context-based interactions • Input driven screens Process Automation Ensure Processes Remain Adaptable No Coding Required
    26. 26. © 2012 IBM Corporation26 Why Business Process Automation Matters Increased Business Responsiveness – Graphical Business Process Modeling • Adapt processes to changing business requirements • Ensure standardization of processes across the enterprise – Automated routing – E-mail notifications – Complete audit trail • Context-driven workflow – Drive users through application screens – Improves user productivity – Decreases training requirements • Low Cost of Implementation/Ownership – No Coding Required Process Automation Ensure Processes Remain Adaptable No Coding Required
    27. 27. © 2012 IBM Corporation27 Agility
    28. 28. © 2012 IBM Corporation28 Change is Constant  To maintain profitability, competitiveness, compliance and value, and in order to ensure growth, companies must be able to react to and embrace change – Change in regulations and laws – Change in markets and competition – Change in customers • More customers, less customers, different customer types, etc. – Internal Change • Mergers, Acquisitions, Spin-Offs, Re-organizations, etc.  IT systems and applications historically have been specified, scoped, evaluated, acquired and implemented based on static requirements defined and collected at a point in time – Most implementations encounter scope change throughout – The cost (and effort) of changing scope during an implementation as well as implementing changes once in production are often overlooked  In addition to defined technical and functional requirements, an Asset Management system’s ability to adapt to change should be a significant component of an evaluation
    29. 29. © 2012 IBM Corporation29 Configuration  Screen Configuration – Customer Configurable • No Coding required – Dynamic, Context Sensitive – Personalization • Start Center • KPIs – Multi-language • on one Maximo instance!  Database Configuration Agility Configurable Data Model Configurable Screens No Coding Required
    30. 30. © 2012 IBM Corporation30 Application Designer
    31. 31. © 2012 IBM Corporation31 The Cost of Currency  Why are most customers of enterprise applications NOT on the most current version of the implemented product, despite the customer being current on maintenance? 1. Because the company is not “ready” to upgrade due to internal reasons • Cost of validation in a regulated environment • Other internal factors created by business climate, competition, regulatory requirements, etc. 1. Because the value to be realized by an upgrade is outweighed by the cost of upgrade 2. Because the initial implementation timeline or previous upgrade took so long and cost so much 3. Because the product has been so “customized” that an upgrade is technically impossible
    32. 32. © 2012 IBM Corporation32 Moving Forward Protected Implementation Investment  Maximo will support business processes today, and tomorrow – User Interface – Business Logic – Business Process – Data Model – System Integration  Tools – Application Designer – Workflow Designer – Database Configuration  Eliminate Release “Lock-In” – Product Updates – Product Upgrades Agility Configurable Data Model Configurable Screens No Coding Required
    33. 33. © 2012 IBM Corporation33 How many “systems” do you have?  Beyond the fundamental components of an Asset Management system (Assets, Work Orders, Inventory, etc.) lies a multitude of “adjacent” systems – Requests of all types (Access, Use, Change in Status, New Assets, Meetings, Catering, New Employees, Employee Termination, etc.) – Meter management (Utilities) – Key and Lock tracking (Facilities) – Motor Pool and Asset reservations (Transportation and other) – Many, many more  These “systems” come in many “casual” shapes and forms – Paper – Excel – Access and other desktop databases – Lotus Notes – Homegrown code – Niche products
    34. 34. © 2012 IBM Corporation34 Considering adjacent “system” costs  Adjacent “systems” must be – Compliant – Secure – Backed up/redundant – Integrated • Levels of integration: manual (high labor cost), technical but nonstandard (high IT cost), standard (vendor supported and low cost) – Adaptable (see “Change” earlier) – Supportable  Consider these costs during the identification of requirements and evaluation of an Asset Management system – Is the footprint broad and deep enough to eliminate existing “adjacent” systems and prevent the proliferation of new “adjacent” systems? – Is it flexible and adaptable enough to replace the “casual” development environments and address the needs identified above?
    35. 35. © 2012 IBM Corporation35 Business Process Platform  Maximo is a platform for implementing all Asset Management processes, including those unique to specific customers  Maximo is utilized to eliminate “pop up” applications and “adjacent” systems that have hidden costs and lack of standards, security and reliability – Applications and processes developed and implemented in Maximo are fully supported – as if they were out of the box – Maximo based applications inherit all the IT standards required of the out of the box applications including security, adaptability, integration readiness, scalability, availability, etc. Agility Configurable Data Model Configurable Screens No Coding Required
    36. 36. © 2012 IBM Corporation36 Why Agility Matters  The Business Environment Changes Often and Fast – Whether a System/Tool can support a change in the business “out of the box” or “as currently implemented” should never be a factor – Opportunity won’t wait while an implementation team develops  Release Lock is Painful – The cost to upgrade should not be higher than the original cost to implement  Customization Costs – The ability to meet a wide range of requirements without heavy coding/customization is imperative Agility Configurable Data Model Configurable Screens No Coding Required
