Persistent Systems, a global leader in technology and software development, and Peacock Engineering, one of the UK’s leading IBM Maximo service and asset management consultancies, have formed a partnership across the UK and Europe to provide innovative asset management solutions.
The partnership combines Peacock Engineering’s Maximo expertise and experience, with Persistent’s industry leadership in emerging technologies including AI and predictive analytics to drive digital transformation, to build on the work Peacock is already providing to clients within the UK. Integrating AI, Cognitive and Predictive Analytics with Maximo means that organisations will improve their levels of efficiency, increase safety for engineers and minimise downtime of assets.
Peacock Engineering has already started to successfully integrate machine learning into Maximo systems, and the work on predictive analytics to identify maintenance schedules and failure predictions were showcased as a finalist in the IBM Watson Build challenge.
“Our clients are looking at how their Maximo solutions can use internal and external data to help their business operate more effectively, whether it is reduced downtime, improved safety or increased workforce automation.” Alan Cambridge, Operations Director at Peacock Engineering, said.
“Being able to work with Persistent means that we can fast-track our development routemap and utilise the knowledge and expertise Persistent has in AI and predictive analytics. This means our clients will be able to transform their use of Maximo and asset management to give them a truly competitive edge.”
“Peacock Engineering has a history of embracing and extending Maximo to solve customer problems more efficiently. What’s particularly compelling to us is how enthusiastic they are about using new and emerging technologies to take their solutions to the next level. It’s fantastic – especially for their customers – that they recognize the potential for digital transformation in the field of asset and facilities management.” said Jitendra Gokhale, President IBM Alliance, Persistent Systems.
