Thanks to Utopia Global Inc. and Hexagon’s PPM division, industrial owner operators will soon have access to an integrated solution that synchronizes asset master data between the SAP Plant Maintenance system and Hexagon’s engineering design management solution, HxGN SDx.
In this partnership, Utopia – a leading global data solutions company known for its quality data migration/data governance software solutions – will integrate its Engineering Connector for SAP Asset Information Workbench (AIW) with HxGN SDx Connector for Plant Maintenance. This will provide an auditable, bi-directional synchronization between engineering and maintenance environments, ensuring alignment between these crucial engineering and maintenance systems of record.
Because complex asset-intensive companies – oil & gas, utilities, chemical and manufacturing industries – make financial, operational and safety decisions based upon a common understanding of operational assets, synchronization of engineering and maintenance data is crucial. Equipment failure causes financial loss as well as creates severe environmental, health and safety risks.
“The Engineering Connector SAP Asset Information Workbench is only the latest in a series of Utopia innovations as we continue to strengthen our asset master data solution suite,” said Mike Jordan, Vice President of Utopia Global EAM Practice. “This integrated environment is designed to work seamlessly with SAP Asset Intelligence Network enabling collaboration among approved engineers, contractors, supplier, operators and maintainers.”
“Providing our customers with deeper alignment between engineering and operational information is one of our key objectives to drive industry transformation from paper to data,” said Jaclyn Arnold, Vice President of Owner Operator Solutions, Hexagon’s PPM division. “The integration with AIW reduces the need to store SAP specific information inside SDx, allowing implementations to be simplified, responsibilities and roles easily applied and our joint customers a governed entry point into the new advancements of the SAP enterprise world like Asset Intelligence Network.”
The Utopia Engineering Connector for SAP Asset Information Workbench is available as a component of Utopia uDGA. This product expands Utopia’s growing portfolio of software complementing SAP Intelligent Asset Management.
