5 Key Challenges for the utilities industry

The UK energy companies continue to face the challenges of an ageing infrastructure, squeezed margins and disruptive new entrants.  The need to manage costs and ensure reliance can be a difficult balance to achieve – drive to decarbonise power generation means a much more diverse asset base bringing differing complex challenges for Operations and Maintenance.

IBM Maximo is the best asset management solution to meet these challenges. Its unique flexibility in configuration allows enterprises to manage assets with completely different characteristics and support any business process without undue cost, with security that they can adapt to future challenges. Using a single system to manage thousands of different assets can be a challenge, particularly when you are looking for optimising the performance of individual assets.

Peacock are the UK’s leading implementer of Maximo, and enhance the solution with Cognos and Fingertip.  We have worked with a number of major utilities companies to design and implement effective asset management  that generates efficiencies and helps ensure reliance.

Solutions look beyond the traditional planned maintenance programmes, using predictive analytics to minimise the volume of urgent repair work; and developing mobile solutions that allow off-line working, removing the need for dual entry.
