IT and OT managers are bombarded with multiple solutions offered by existing and new players in the domain of Asset Performance Management. Traditional EAM / CMMS suppliers extend their offerings to APM and connect assets through OT, introducing for example predictive analytics and asset health monitoring. In addition, traditional and new vendors both offer mobile solutions either as an extension of their own system or by connecting to others to manage operating rounds, Permit to Work, AR and VR solutions, etc. Traditional vendors of OT systems like DCS, Historians, SCADA, MES etc. now also offer similar solutions around predictive analytics and Asset Health Insight, but also Digital Twins and Cloud based platforms to create data lakes and many more.
MaxGrip understands IT and OT solutions and systems. We have actively helped with the introduction of such solutions and used to have our own APM software. We have sold our software to be able to operate fully agnostically as an APM consultancy firm. The often-phrased term “Digital Transformation” does fit into our offerings, but we dare to say that it takes a Company Transformation, not just a Digital Transformation, to reap the benefits of so-called Industry 4.0 / IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) solutions.
