It is imperative for companies operating in asset-intensive industries – from oil, gas and chemicals, to marine structures and pipeline operations – to ensure their APM systems remain fit for purpose into the future. However, an understandable wariness exists around transitioning to a new APM platform when the new solution must seamlessly integrate with the existing ecosystem. Concerns around integrity, migration efficiency, upfront IT costs and data preservation can prompt pause for thought as upgrades are considered, as well as business culture barriers.
At the same time, however, businesses recognise that it has never been more important to have an advanced, efficient and reliable APM system underpinning their operations. This is particularly the case at a time when the business world is changing; remote working is becoming a common feature of everyday operations and applications built on SaaS come into their own.
Upgrading to a new asset performance management (APM) system needn’t be a daunting prospect.
Lloyd’s Register has moved to address the concerns of those looking to upgrade their APM system to AllAssets. Because we appreciate that migration is traditionally perceived as a difficult journey, we have invested significant time and resources in the development of both the software tools and the professional services that support an efficient transition.
