Complementary expertise enables asset-intensive industries to reduce risk and increase profitability
Cambridge, UK – 16 October 2014: AVEVA, a leader in engineering, design and Information Management solutions for the plant, power and marine industries, and Capgemini, one of the world’s foremost providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services, today announced their signing of a Global Alliance agreement.
The agreement will benefit asset-intensive industries such as Oil & Gas, Process, Power, Marine and transport infrastructure. Building upon the alliance’s capabilities, customers will be able to achieve increased efficiency in construction, revamp and modification projects, as well as to extend the life of, and improve the integrity of operational information in, existing assets. For new-build projects, AVEVA’s market-leading Integrated Engineering & Design solution enables rapid project setup, highly productive clash-free 3D design and real-time collaboration across different locations and disciplines. AVEVA’s solutions for Owner Operators enable them to control and manage both project performance and the long-term operational performance of their assets.
Capgemini’s Digital industrial Asset Lifecycle Management (DiALM) solution, based on AVEVA Information Management technology, will enable organisations in asset-intensive industries to benefit from highly skilled resources for programme management, business consulting, systems integration and outsourcing, ensuring the successful delivery of integrated information management solutions.
“Capgemini’s position in the delivery of integrated Information Management solutions to global asset-intensive industries is highly complementary to AVEVA’s portfolio,” commented Derek Middlemas, Vice President, AVEVA. “Combining Capgemini’s leading position in consulting and system integration with AVEVA’s software and domain knowledge offers unrivalled improvements in the life cycle management of complex assets. As part of the agreement, we have created a solution for integrated engineering and asset management that demonstrates the considerable business value that our new alliance can offer.”
Thierry Jourdan, Global industrial and Nuclear Asset Lifecycle Management leader at Capgemini, added “This alliance enables us to offer our customers a complete enterprise solution to optimise complex engineering projects and the through-life management of their digital assets, thus avoiding many typical causes of major cost and time overruns. At the AVEVA World Summit on 16th October, we will be demonstrating how this combination of Capgemini’s skills and AVEVA’s software solutions has led to the creation of the DiALM solution. We will also reveal how this collaboration can offer a unique, best-in-class solution for the management of both linear assets, such as rail networks or power grids, and vertical assets such as power plant or offshore platforms.”
