Utility facilities are complex. Efficient and safe plant operations involve many groups, both internal and external, that must work effectively together. Volumes of content related to the plant and its operations that must be managed. Much of this content is dynamic and not properly updated. As a result, key maintenance and emergency response efforts are delayed, which directly affects plant availability and could even result in plant shut down. IBM ECM solutions are designed to help companies manage their plants, processes and assets. It can merge all of a company's enterprise and departmental content sources, improving access to information by linking engineering, facilities, maintenance, compliance, legal, suppliers and operations departments—regardless of location—to speed business processes, optimize operations and aid in making the decisions that are critical to success.
ECM solutions from IBM have allowed our Energy & Utility customers to optimize plant availability, maximize energy rates and reduce the cost of compliance.
