Ask Approyo - How can SAP S/4HANA impact Asset Management?

July 26, 2017

In today’s dynamic marketplace, organizations are looking for ways to achieve greater operational excellence with access to accurate, real-time information about their enterprise. They want to acquire capabilities to predict and simulate operational problems before they occur, and are looking at ways to empower their workforce with all the information required to run their operational processes without issues and with effective integration of information and operational technologies.

 

With SAP S/4HANA, organizations can build a strong foundation for operational excellence with asset management and environment, health, and safety (EHS) capabilities. SAP S/4HANA enables organizations to manage their asset-related cost, risk, and performance holistically. It helps them in implementing proactive maintenance strategies that are enriched with the analysis of real-time data, as well as predictive and other forecasting methods. The solution also provides organizations the ability to systematically reduce risk and improve worker safety with one common view of process risks related to workers, assets, or environment.

 

SAP S/4HANA is a digital core that fully integrates with solutions that are built on the SAP HANA Cloud Platform, such as SAP Asset Intelligence Network or the SAP Predictive Maintenance and Service solution, cloud edition. These solutions enable an organization to access standardized, up-to-date asset master data and performance information. The extensions also allow an organization to collaborate effectively among business partners by providing the ability to share asset information and insight with the ecosystem. 

 

SAP S/4HANA Asset Management enables organizations to efficiently manage the entire asset lifecycle with real-time visibility into asset performance using powerful analytics. The solution makes it easier to optimize asset usage, shrink costs, lower risks, better manage capital expenditures, and ultimately maximize return on assets.
